Why Focus on Peru?

The Opportunity in Peru

Peru is an established mining region which hosts significant mineral resources. In addition to substantial precious and base metal resources, Peru is considered a low cost producer of key mineral commodities due to the typically high-grade resources and relatively low-cost operating environment.

Recent Transaction Activity

Due to recent exploration success in both Peru and Ecuador at a time where large resources are becoming harder to discover in other parts of the world, the North Andean region is experiencing increased interest by major mining companies. A summary of recent transactions is outlined in a Map of the North Andean World-Class Mineral Provinces, developed by Fidelity Minerals. In order to View Map, click here.
