Lucky Minerals (LKY.V) takes channel sampling seriously. The company, led by CEO François Perron, holds a set of mineral concessions in Ecuador. It has been working on the Wayka High Sulfidation Epithermal (‘HSE’) Gold Discovery where a program of trenching has defined a large area of HSE gold mineralisation at surface.
“We have too much geology for our geologists,” Francois Perron, CEO of Lucky Minerals (LKY.V) told me in a telephone interview. It is a problem many junior exploration companies would like to have. Having 12 contiguous exploration concessions covering 550 Km2 means there is a lot of ground to cover. So much ground that Lucky Minerals has only been able to focus on a few “hot spots” on its Fortuna property in Ecuador.
