1999-2007: Several prospecting and explorative campaigns have been carried out over the Oscara area since 1999, mostly by Mansfield and later by Regulus. During this period, a regional geological map was generated by Mansfield geologists in addition to detailed mapping over specific areas. A total of 1,010 rock and float samples were taken which highlighted a “horseshoe-shaped” geochemical anomaly around the Cerro Oscara hill. These anomalies are predominantly of Cu and Fe with minor Au, Ag, Mo and Bi.
2008: The Oscara property was transferred to Pachamama Resources Inc. as part of a restructuring of Mansfield.
2012: This property was transferred to Regulus when it merged with Pachamama.
2013-2018: Several field campaigns were conducted by Regulus geologists and 52 samples were collected for geochemical analysis. These samples results confirmed the anomalies previously defined by Mansfield prospectors and geologists
2018: The Oscara project, together with Rio Grande, Aguas Calientes and other early stage Argentina projects, was spun out into Aldebaran.
2019-Present: No work is currently planned for this project in the Aldebaran portfolio; however, the Company is evaluating and planning how to move the project forward. In parallel, the Company has been engaged with third parties to discuss potential for joint venture or other partnerships to advance the project.
