Jasperoide Project

The Jasperoide Project covers 26,800 hectares in Southern Peru. Access is by primary and secondary roads from the regional capital of Cusco. The average elevation at the Jasperoide site is 4,300m, located on a gently rolling plateau.  C3 Metals has identified and modelled 3 types of mineralization at Jasperoide:

  • At surface high grade copper oxide at Montana de Cobre
  • Near surface sulphide copper mineralization at Cresta Verde with indications of a feeder system from a buried copper porphyry
  • Epithermal veining with high grade gold and silver values at Callejon de Oro.

GEOLOGY

At Jasperoide, high-grade copper-gold skarn in outcrop has been mapped for over three kilometres along strike.  The geologic setting at Jasperoide is analogous to the giant copper-gold deposits at the nearby Las Bambas and Constancia mines: Folded and thrust faulted carbonate sedimentary rocks, a multi-phase intrusive complex, and extensive skarn alteration.  At Jasperoide, copper-gold mineralization is closely associated with magnetite skarn development. The potential for porphyry copper mineralization is demonstrated by phyllic alteration and B-veins proximal to the mineralized skarn.

Surrounded by world class deposits:

  • Las Bambas  1.20BT @ 0.61% Cu, 197ppm Mo (MMG)
  • Constancia   534MT @ 0.31% Cu, 97ppm Mo (HudBay)  
  • Antapaccay   592MT @ 0.45% Cu (Glencore)  
  • Haquira   569MT @ 0.56% Cu (First Quantum)

TARGETS

Considerable potential for hosting copper at Jasperoide lies within the interpreted “STACKED” skarn system with well-developed mineralogic zonation and near surface oxide copper development, a deeper porphyry-style mineralization and intermediate sulphidation vein overprinting. Given the large volume of skarn mineralization seen at Jasperoide, the potential for a large copper-gold deposit similar in scale to neighbouring mines is possible.

Magnetic Analytical Signal

Jasperoide is located along the well known, yet surprisingly underexplored Andahuaylas-Yauri Belt in southeastern Peru.  We are well positioned with almost 27,000Ha and Jasperoide  is surrounded by a pipeline of similar high potential copper and copper-gold targets in this world class copper mining district.”

MONTANA DE COBRE

C3 Metals Inc TSXV - CCCM OTCQB - CUAUF Oxidized Skarn

Current drilling at Montana de Cobre has outlined oxide copper, gold and silver mineralization covering an area of 650m by 600m to a depth of 250m.  This mineralization is characterized by highly oxidized rock with mineralization from surface and includes a high grade zone near the lower extent of oxidation.

Results from this section indicate the extent of mineralization.

At Montana de Cobre, evidence of a deeper, buried porphyry is shown in a brecciated tonalite with 3-5% chalcopyrite.

“The kicker is finding these sulphide rich porphyry fragments within a breccia – ripped up from a deep seated copper porphyry system, just like we have in JAS2650-04”

CRESTA VERDE

Initial drilling by C3 at Cresta Verde on Section JAS4350 has outlined disseminated to massive sulphides with chalcopyrite mineralization drilling within a coincident IP chargeability and magnetic anomalies.

CALLEJON DE ORO

Surface sampling has indicated a series of low sulphidation epithermal veins with high values in historic trenching and recent drilling. C3 Metals’ 2021 IP and magnetic surveys indicate additional magnetite skarn targets.

Additional Targets

New target development from boots on the ground mapping, sampling, ground IP and airborne magnetics. 

  • Brecciated High Sulphidation feeder structures
  • Stacked and buried “dirty” limestone susceptible to skarnification and copper mineralization
  • Buried copper porphyry
