— Precious metals & mineral Mining —
We are Atacama Resources International Ltd a subsidiary of Atacama Resources International Inc. Dedicated to the exploration and development of gold, diamonds, cobalt, graphite, copper and iron resources, our goal is to become an important North American source for these precious metals and minerals.
Minerals & locations
Success in this business depends on market demand, location, cost minimization, experienced operators and dependable funding. The good news is demand for all the minerals and precious metals on our exploration sites is expected to rise. We have multiple claims on 4460 acres in the Kirkland Lake and other areas of mineral-rich northern Ontario. These sites are easily accessible to existing roads and rail, close to mining communities, and near mining exploration, development and refining operations. In short – we are well-positioned in a proven mining area with anticipated cost-efficient operations.
A team of mining and business experts has been assembled to manage and operate the projects on our claims. We have engaged the services of Canadian Exploration Services (CXS), a leading and highly respected provider of exploration services, as a key member of our team. We have a strategy for providing on-going revenue and cash flow during the exploration and development phases of our projects. Adequate funding that is not fully dependent on costly financing is unique in our industry and is made possible by our parent company, Atacama Resources International, Inc. (ACRL OTCQB). ACRL owns another company, GOOD2DRIVE, a high-tech business that is positioned to produce cash flow and funding for the mining operations.
Long valued for its corrosion and wear-resistant properties, cobalt has been used in special alloys like those used in aircraft engines. It is an essential element used in electroplating and for imparting blue and green colors to glass and ceramic products. Radioactive 60co is used in cancer treatment. We expect a major increase in demand for cobalt as the worldwide electric vehicle battery and energy storage businesses expand.
Copper continues to be a preferred conductor of heat and electricity with numerous uses in the electrical and high tech industries. It is also used in many alloys including those for coins and for gun metal.
Canada has four diamond mines and is the third largest supplier of gem quality diamonds in the world. The USA has no diamond mines. Early exploration work on our diamond properties has turned up macro and micro diamonds – from samples close to the surface. The market demand for diamonds from North American sources is expected to grow – especially from the USA (the world’s largest market for diamonds).
Gold is a crucial asset to hold during economic, political and social uncertainty. It is also valued for jewelry and other applications where conductivity and non-corrosive material is essential. The demand for “cheap” gold is expected to rise. The cost of exploration and extraction where deep mining is required is becoming uneconomical for producers. New discoveries are rare. Atacama gold sites are near one of the world’s most successful producing gold mines. Our prospects for success in the gold business look very bright to us.
New and exciting uses for this mineral are creating high market demands worldwide. Graphite has recently been categorized as a crucial strategic mineral by several governments including the United States and the European Union because it is used in energy related applications such as electric vehicles, Pebble Bed nuclear reactors, fuel cells, solar panels energy storage, photovoltaics and many electronics including smartphones and laptops. China is thought to produce 70% of the present global supply. They are now retaining 80% for their own use. North America needs 25 new graphite mines by 2020 to keep up with demand.
Iron ore is the base ingredient for the many iron and steel products used throughout the world. The demand, especially for North American ore is expected to rise as major infrastructure, military and large building projects are implemented. Atacama has iron sites with excellent infrastructure logistics. We are motivated to develop these ore-producing sites.
