The Chapada mine, located in the Brazilian state of Goias, is a copper‐gold mine that began production in 2007. Previously owned and operated by Yamana Gold, the project was sold to Lundin Mining in July 2019. In 2020, Chapada produced 50,038 tonnes of copper at a cash cost of $0.29 per pound of copper on a co‐product basis. For 2021, Lundin Mining guided towards production of 48,000 to 53,000 tonnes of copper at the Chapada Mine. Significant mine life and throughput expansion potential exists at Chapada through resource conversion to reserves as well as through ongoing near mine exploration. Lundin Mining has undertaken studies for optimization and expansion at the mine, which are ongoing.
