Emerita was awarded the Nuevo Tintillo concessions in June 2021.
The Nuevo Tintillo project is hosted in the Iberian Pyrite Belt. It is located in the eastern part of the belt, in Seville Province, between the world-class deposits of Aznacollar, in the southeast, and Rio Tinto in the northwest. The project is easily accessible by road from Seville for approximately 40km.
Nuevo Tintillo encompasses 6,875 hectares (with 7,625 hectares pending), and has a rectangular shape along the east-west axis for about 25 km. The concessions were previously held by several major companies during the 1980’s and 1990’s, most recently Boliden Apirsa.
Traces of artisanal operations dating from the 19th century are still found on the property, most notably at Pilancrones, La Jarosa and Nazaret, which are all aligned in an east-west direction. From this last deposit, historical mineral productions of up to 5% copper have been reported.
