Adventus is a unique public company focused on metals exploration and development in Ecuador. Adventus also owns a portfolio of exploration projects and equity investments in Ireland and Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada that are funded by commercial partners.
Curipamba Copper-Gold-Zinc Project with El Domo Deposit
With its local partner Salazar Resources Ltd ("Salazar"), Adventus is advancing the Curipamba project and district by spending US$ 25M over 5 years to earn 75% of the under-explored 21,500 hectare property, which contains the El Domo deposit (measured & indicated resource: 8.9 million tonnes at 2.00% Cu, 2.56 g/t Au, 51 g/t Ag, 0.28% Pb, 2.93% Zn - see May 2, 2019 PEA news release) and a set of undrilled greenfield targets on the greater property. The successful 2019 exploration program centred on the first airborne geophysical survey over the Curipamba property and detailed interpretation for optimized drilling targets outside of El Domo. Adventus has an ambitious 2020 drilling and exploration plan and work is underway (see Jan. 21, 2020 news release).
Ecuador-wide Exploration Alliance
Also with its Ecuadorean partner, Adventus has formed a country-wide exploration alliance which applies its financial and capital markets strength with the Salazar team's history of exploration success and local know-how for new discoveries. The Adventus (80%) and Salazar (20%) joint venture has incorporated its first two greenfield projects to-date: Pijili and Santiago, both of which demonstrate potential for copper-gold porphyry and high grade epithermal vein systems. Both projects are being readied for drilling in 2020.
Distinguished Strategic Shareholders
Adventus is uniquely backed by a group of globally respected investors, which includes Altius Minerals, Greenstone Resources, Resource Capital Funds, Wheaton Precious Metals, and the Nobis Group of Ecuador. As a publicly listed company on the TSX Venture exchange (symbol: ADZN) and traded on the OTCQX (symbol: ADVZF), Adventus is an opportunity to invest alongside sophisticated leaders in the mining sector and in the potential of Ecuador.
Exploration Portfolio in Ireland & Equity Investments
Outside of Ecuador, Adventus owns one of the largest mineral concession portfolio in the Republic of Ireland and has announced an earn-in funding partnership with South32 Limited (see Jan. 13, 2020 news release). Adventus also holds equity investments in Canstar Resources Inc. (ROX: TSX-V) which is focused on base metals exploration near the historic mining camps of Buchans and Daniel's Harbour in Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada, and BMEx Limited which is focused on base metals exploration in Ireland and Australia.
The Adventus board and management team recognizes the global scarcity of value-creating exploration and development projects. With its selectively acquired portfolio of projects and entrepreneurial work approach, Adventus is positioned to take advantage of the strong fundamentals in the metals and mining market.
