550 km2 property in the heart of a proven and highly mineralized mineral district in Ecuador but which has seen only limited exploration and has never been drilled.
Evidence of significant hydrothermal alteration & breccias, geochemical anomalies and placer mining supports potential for Cu/Au porphyry systems and epithermal Au deposits similar to numerous multi-million ounce Au and bulk tonnage Cu deposits ~40km away.
Lucky Minerals has outlined a high impact exploration program including geochemistry, geophysics and structural analysis which will identify high potential targets for drilling.

The Emigrant Creek Project
The Emigrant Creek Project contains several targets within a fifteen square kilometer area owned or controlled by Lucky Minerals. The project area is located in the center of a large core of highly mineralized and intensely altered geology known as the Emigrant Mining District, which is part of the Absaroka-Gallatin volcanic field that covers an area of 23,000 kilometers and is the largest Eocene volcanic field in North America, and follows a northwest trending pattern for over 250 kilometers from west-central Wyoming to Livingston, Montana.
Five Zones within the project area have been explored by various methods over the years and have been identified as highly desirable target areas for further exploration by the company. These target zones are known as St. Julien, DUV, Allison, Base Metal, and Emigrant Creek. Analysis of the work completed to date indicates that ten highly mineralized breccia-pipes are part of the same mineralization event and are zoned from a molybdenum rich core through copper gold to copper silver on the outer edges of the central area.
