Commented Lyle Davis, Condor President, “Minas Buenaventura operated 3 underground mines at Lucero until circa 2005, several years prior to Condor acquiring the project. Condor leased the project to a Peruvian based mining company in 2015, and when the lease was terminated in late 2019, we made the strategic decision to monetize the project, and concentrate our efforts on four key exploration projects: Pucamayo, Huinac Punta, Cobreorco, and Andrea. Calipuy management have brought two mines into production, and we are confident they will be successful with a re-start at Lucero.”
Condor is an active explorer focused exclusively on Peru, supplemented by a project generator and royalty model designed to generate exploration capital whilst minimizing shareholder dilution. Our objective in advancing our portfolio of projects is the discovery of a major new precious metals or base metals deposit in Peru. Project acquisition and exploration activities are managed by the Company’s Lima based exploration team.
