This property is located south of the city of Manaus and encompasses approximately 1,370,368 hectares of 164 processos minerals (claims) in the states of Amazonas, Mato Grosso and Rondonia. It is centered between the Tapajos River on the east and the Mardeira River to the west in an area of extensive mining. There is an international airport at Manaus and highway access to the property is southbound to Humaita and then eastbound on the Transamazonia Highway using a complex system of secondary or tertiary gravel roads. The more remote portions of the property are accessible by local river transportation.
