The Challacollo silver project provides a platform for Aftermath to become a significant, silver-dominant exploration and development company.
Challacollo is a low-sulphidation (LS), epithermal deposit. LS epithermal deposits represent major sources of gold and silver throughout the world. Mining of epithermal gold deposits accounts for about 12% of the world’s total gold production and some deposits achieve bonanza grades.
Challacollo hosts a current Mineral Resource, published by Aftermath in December 2020, of 6.64 million tonnes at 165 g/t silver in the Indicated category (35.2 million ounces silver and 58 thousand ounces of gold) and 2.8 million tonnes at 124 g/t silver in Inferred, with associated gold credits (11.1-million ounces silver and 15,000 ounces of gold).
