About Us

Los Andes Copper acquired a portion of the Vizcachitas project in 2007 and commenced exploration work. In 2010 the Company consolidated 100% ownership of the Project and began work on developing a new geological model following developments in the understanding of porphyry deposits in the Central Belt of Chile. Drilling campaigns in 2015 and 2017 confirmed the new geological model, expanded the mineralization and demonstrated the potential for further upside. This was all integrated into the June 2019 PEA demonstrating that Vizcachitas is a robust tier 1 copper project.

Following the successful PEA, the decision to progress with a Pre Feasibility Study was made. The Company brought together a team of highly experienced technical advisors who have identified a number of changes to the PEA, ensuring Vizcachitas is designed to adopt the best and latest practices of sustainable mining. These changes include the adoption of HPGR milling to reduce energy consumption, dry-stacked tailings to reduce water usage and the Project footprint and the switch to desalinated water ensuring the local water resources are not impacted by the mine.

During the first quarter of 2022 the Company conducted a drilling campaign that once again expanded the mineralization and showed further upside potential. Los Andes Copper is currently advancing its Pre-Feasibility study and expects to finalize it during 1Q2023.
