Lida Resources Inc. Enters Into LOI to Option 100% Interest in the Minas Pampa Project, La Libertad Region, Peru






Lida Resources Inc. (CSE: LIDA) a Canadian exploration company, is pleased to announce that it has entered a Letter of Intent to option the Minas Pampa Project, in La Libertad Region Peru. The LOI encompasses 300 hectares which encompass the optioned property.


The Minas Pampa Property is located near the village of Casgabamba within the Sarin district of the Sánchez Carrión Province of the La Libertad Department in northern Peru. The Property is approximately 450 km due north of Lima, the capital of Peru and the coastal city of Trujillo lies 120 km to the west. Huamachuco, the nearest population center, is 18 km north-northwest of the Property. The Minas Pampa Property is situated along the eastern flank of the Western Cordillera of the Central Andes Mountains in northern Peru.


The Minas Pampa Project hosts primarily epithermal precious metal mineralization within the Cretaceous aged Chimu Formation clastic sedimentary rocks. Numerous past and currently producing epithermal gold and silver mines in the La Libertad Department of Northern Peru are hosted in the Chimu Formation and the other closely associated Lower Cretaceous clastic sedimentary rocks of the Goyllarisquizga Group along with Calipuy Formation volcanics and associated intrusions.


Like many of the Au-Ag projects in the La Libertad Department, the Au-Ag mineralization at Minas Pampa is thought to be dominantly related to Tertiary aged high sulphidation, epithermal Au-Ag processes. There is also the possibility of intermediate to low sulphidation epithermal Au-Ag occurring locally. Porphyry style mineralization could occur at depth and be related to or the source of the epithermal mineralization.


Veining, erosion, oxidation and more recent supergene processes have likely contributed to remobilization of the Au-Ag mineralization. The main zone of mineralization is associated with hydrothermal brecciation along the axis of an anticline and along a steeply dipping normal fault (Candela Structure) that has an orientation of approximately 320° to 330°. This structure follows the surface trend of the Chimu sandstones that have a general bearing of 310° to 330° both locally and regionally. This is the same orientation as the Northern Corridor metallotectonic belt of north Andean Peru which hosts much of the gold mineralization in the La Libertad and other districts. These are the structural and lithological controls that likely controlled hydrothermal alteration and Au-Ag mineralization at Minas Pampa.
