Strait Gold Corporation is a Canadian mineral exploration company active in Peru, one of the fastest growing mining areas in the world. Our focus is on gold, silver and copper in two active projects, all located in Ancash Department, the same area of north-central Peru that hosts the Pierina gold mine (Barrick Corporation), the Antamina base metals mine (BHP Billiton, TeckCominco, Xstrata Minerals and Mitsubishi) and several other mining projects that are either in production or under development.
We are applying for permits to drill at our Letra Rumi South project (copper-silver). At our Culebrilla precious metals property, we plan further detailed mapping and sampling on a previously untested zone where high grade copper-silver-gold veins are exposed. As well, we are in process of a detailed review of other properties in Peru to identify projects that meet our criteria of gold- or copper-dominant, early-stage projects with good potential for rapid resource identification.
