Latin America

Mexico and Colombia are the focus of our exploration programs in Latin America.

Morelos Sur:  The Morelos Sur project is in the Guerrero gold belt in Guerrero State southwest of Mexico City, and it hosts six gold prospects, and numerous exploration targets. The property is adjacent to other mining and exploration projects containing substantial gold deposits owned by other companies, such as the operating Los Filos open pit gold mine to the east.

Agnico has 100% interest in the Morelos Sur property subject to various NSR royalties. It was acquired as part of Agnico's purchase of Cayden Resources in November 2014. In recent years we carried out exploration that included limited field work.

Anza: In September 2020, Agnico Eagle formed a 50-50 exploration Joint Venture in Colombia with Newmont Corporation to explore the Anza gold project in Antioquia Department in Colombia’s gold-rich Mid-Cauca belt. Agnico Eagle is operator of the JV, and the Anza project is under option from Orosur Mining Inc. The JV may also seek other prospective gold targets of district-scale potential in Colombia.
