We currently operate the Corihuarmi Gold Mine in the high Andes of central Peru, which has been in continuous production since the first quarter of 2008.
Ollachea is our flagship project. Located in southern Peru, Ollachea is an advanced gold development project with high potential for reserve and resource expansion. We completed a Feasibility Study for an underground mining operation at Ollachea in late 2012. We expect to receive the key environmental approvals and construction permits necessary to build the mine in the second half of 2013.
We have also completed a Feasibility Study and Financial process with Argentine sources for Don Nicolas, a gold and silver development project on the Deseado Massif in the Province of Santa Cruz, Argentina. Don Nicolas has the major environmental approvals and development permits in place to start mine construction. There is also excellent exploration potential at Don Nicolas and elsewhere with our extensive land package on the Deseado Massif.
