Copper Growth and Discovery in the Americas
Multiple-Times Growth and Discovery Potential
Solaris is responsibly advancing a portfolio of copper assets in the Americas, focused on its Warintza Project in Ecuador that features a broad cluster of outcropping copper porphyry deposits anchored by a large-scale, high-grade open pit resource inventory at Warintza Central. Ongoing efforts are focused on rapid resource growth and further discovery drilling. The Company offers additional discovery potential at its portfolio projects: Capricho and Paco Orco in Peru, Ricardo and Tamarugo in Chile, and significant leverage to increasing copper prices through its 60%-interest in the La Verde joint-venture with Teck Resources in Mexico. All of our exploration programs were conceived by David Lowell (1928-2020), the World's Greatest Explorer, who made more discoveries of greater consequence than anyone in history.
- David Lowell has made more discoveries of greater consequence than anyone in history, with over a dozen major discoveries, including the greatest of all time, La Escondida, which produced ~C$10B of copper last year.
- Assembled our portfolio of assets and designed programs led by his protégé, Jorge Fierro, the Company’s VP, Exploration.
- Lowell-Guilbert first defined porphyry deposit model. Its application led to David’s first discoveries (exposed deposits). He evolved his technique for a second wave of discoveries (obscured deposits); he’s now targeting blind discoveries.
