Our business

Since receiving our first exploration concession in 2011, we have been conducting geological surveys in Poland, including drilling of exploratory wells.

To date, Amarante has carried out an intensive exploration program under its exploration concession and has made a significant discovery of copper and silver deposits in the cupriferous shale formation in western Poland.

Peryklina Żar Project

The Peryklina Żar concession area, totaling 1184 sq. km, is located near Żary in Lubusz Voivodship. The discoveries of the copper and silver deposits were made here by Amarante’s geologist team in 2014. As part of the project, 28 wells have been drilled with depths ranging from 650 to 1100 metres.

All fieldwork was supervised by the District Mining Office. In addition, Amarante has regularly submitted the exploration results and geological samples obtained to the Polish Geological Institute, which is an agency of the Ministry of the Environment.
