Great Southern Copper was established to focus primarily on opportunities in the exploration sector within the South American geographic region. The current focus of Great Southern Copper is on copper-gold opportunities in Chile, a region with a long mining history and significant untapped value. Great Southern Copper has entered into options to acquire 218 mining concessions covering in excess of 53,000 hectares in the Coastal Cordillera of northern Chile. All of the project areas are considered to be prospective for copper and/or gold.
