Inca Says Peru-based Riqueza Zinc Project Has “Massive Potential”

A geophysics report shows a large- to giant-sized carbonate replacement deposit could occur within the Great Riqueza project’s Yanacolipa target center.

Through a geophysics report, Inca Minerals (ASX:ICG) has found that a large- to giant-sized carbonate replacement deposit could occur at the Great Riqueza project’s Yanacolipa target.

Yanacolipa, located in the project’s northeast area, is one of three large target centers at Riqueza and contains four high-priority targets that span 4.42 square kilometers in total.

The zinc-silverlead project itself is located within Peru’s polymetallic belt, which is known to host a number of porphyry-coppergold deposits.

Major miner South32 (ASX:S32) exercised its option to earn a 60-percent stake in Riqueza in August, agreeing to spend US$8 to US$10 million on phase one exploration. Upon fulfilling those obligations, the company will have the option to acquire an additional 10-percent interest in phase two.

“I’m excited by this partnership. South32 is a globally recognised sector leader and provides a clear advantage and capacity in the development of Riqueza,” said Inca Managing Director Ross Brown in a press release at the time.

After a surface geophysics interpretation was completed, 3D modeling was used to better define targets at the project and covered the entire survey area. Brown referred to the modeling as critical, highlighting the benefits of using the method.

“Three-dimensional modelling is critical to exploration planning. It provides an indication of the potential size, shape and depth of each and every target,” he said in a statement.

Brown added, “[t]hrough this knowledge, budgets and logistics for sampling programs, ground geophysics and drilling programs may be constructed. This is a vital aspect of earn-in agreement negotiations.”

According to Inca, discussions between the company and South32 regarding phase one exploration have progressed well, with a contractual 90-day timeframe now ticking down upon the completion of the geophysics report. The company expects negotiations to be completed within the allotted time.

Rare Earth Elements Demand is Still Growing

Rare Earth Elements are 17 silvery-white heavy metals with special magnetic capabilities. REEs have diverse applications and are commonly used in lasers, glass, superconductors, hard drives, wind turbine generators, and magnetic materials. Despite the name, REEs are abundant in the world, often found underground alongside uranium in sand structures called monazite. REEs concentrate must first be separated from the sand. Neodymium and praseodymium (NdPr) represent about 80% of the value of REE concentrate. Demand for these elements is growing because of their use in electric vehicles, wind turbines, and appliances. Adams Intelligence expects the demand for NdPr to double in the next five years. Removing REEs from monazite and then separating REEs into individual components is a complicated process.
