Lucky Minerals Inc.
Lucky Minerals is an exploration and development company that is targeting large-scale mineral systems in proven districts with the potential to host world-class deposits.
The Fortuna project
Lucky Minerals holds a 100-per-cent interest in Fortuna, a 550-square-kilometre property in the heart of a proven and highly mineralized mineral district in Ecuador, but which has seen only limited exploration and has never been drilled.
Evidence of significant hydrothermal alteration, stockwork, breccias, geochemical anomalies and placer mining supports the potential for copper/gold porphyry systems and epithermal gold deposits that are similar to numerous multimillion-ounce gold and bulk-tonnage copper deposits approximately 40 kilometres away.
Qualified person statement
Technical information with respect to the projects contained in this news release has been reviewed and approved by Alain Moreau, PGeo, vice-president of exploration, who is Lucky's designated qualified person for the purposes of National Instrument 43-101.
