The Cachoeira project has had a long history of gold mining dating back to the 17th century with more recent exploration completed by Goldfields, Vale and Trek Mining (previously Luna Gold). The greenstone hosted orogenic gold mineralization is hosted in three deposits that on average have been defined by drilling to 125 m depth on average. The eastern margin of the greenstone belt has several coincident soil and geophysical anomalies that have not been tested drilling. Mining concessions cover the three deposits.
