Bendi Gold Project
18,900 hectares under application
Department of Puno, south-eastern Peru
Overview, Infrastructure & Geology
The Bendi Gold Project applications were submitted on the basis of Palamina’s current understanding of the structures in the district, their relationship to existing small-scale gold mines and the recent availability of expired mining rights due to the cancelation of prior titled concessions. Palamina has conducted one reconnaissance visit to the Bendi Gold Project but is yet to complete any geological evaluation of the area.
Focus on the POGB
The Puno Orogenic Gold Belt (POGB) covers approximately 175 km x 75 km on the eastern side of the Andes in south-eastern Peru. Known mineralized structures in the POGB extend up to 6 km in length with widths ranging from 0.2 m up to 2.0 m, within mantos up to 40 m in width. Palamina has secured the mining rights to 5 district scale land positions within the POGB where informal miners are actively mining visible gold. Palamina is actively exploring the Gaban and Coasa gold projects in order to identify suitable drill target areas to ultimately define economic gold resources while carrying out limited exploration programs on its Cori, Orco and Bendi gold projects.
