About La Verde

La Verde is located in an area with excellent infrastructure: Power, rail and water. Lazaro Cardenas, Mexico's third largest port on the Pacific Ocean is 180 km from the site. Significant upside potential remains for the two known zones of porphyry style copper, gold and silver mineralization as drill programs have shown both deposits remain open to depth and along strike.
