Chakana Copper Corp announced that it is expected to commence its fully-funded 15,000m drill program at the expanded Soledad Project on August 15, 2020. The company has a drill rig on site and initial drilling will focus on the Paloma East and Paloma West breccia pipes before proceeding to the Huancarama Breccia Complex (Fig. 2) and may include other high-priority drill-ready targets. President and CEO David Kelley said "Our team is very excited to restart drilling at Soledad where surface and trench samples in this newly permitted area have given us several very impressive gold-rich targets. The work program will also include surface channel sampling of multiple breccia pipes that are expected to be included in an initial resource estimate. We will provide further detailed information on targets once the field program and drilling are underway. As we commence this phase of field work, we would like to reassure all stakeholders that we have a full COVID-19 protocol in place and are working with the local authorities to ensure that all of our employees and communities are safe."

Chakana Copper Corp is a Canadian based minerals exploration company that is currently advancing the expanded Soledad copper-gold-silver project in the Ancash region of the highly prolific Miocene mineral belt of Peru. The Soledad Project consists of high-grade copper-gold-silver mineralization hosted in tourmaline breccia pipes. A total of 30,273m of drilling has been completed to-date, testing seven of twenty-three confirmed breccia pipes.
