Belo Sun Mining Corp. is a Canadian based mineral exploration company with a portfolio of properties including gold in Brazil.

Belo Sun’s principal project includes the Volta Grande project located in the northern region of Para State. The company also holds interests in the Patrocinio and Rainbow projects in Brazil.

Belo Sun Mining Corp. was founded in 1984 and is headquartered in Toronto, Canada.


Volta Grande Project

The 100% owned Volta Grande Project is located approximately 60 kilometres southwest of the town of Altamira in the northern region of Para State. The geological setting at the project areas is part of the same sequences present in the Carajas "Word Class" mineral province.

The Company currently controls the mining and exploration rights over an area covering 58,433 hectares of the area known for artisanal gold mining.

Volta Grande, the Company's primary focus, is an advanced-stage exploration project where an indicated and inferred gold resource has already been delineated. The resource is comprised of 1.3 million indicated ounces of gold and 2.1 million inferred ounces of gold using a 0.50 g/t cut-off.

Patrocinio Project

Belo Sun's 100% owned Patrocinio Project covers approximately 18,669 hectares of the Tapajos gold province in the Para State of northern Brazil.

The Tapajos province is historically the most important gold producing region in Brazil, with over six million ounces of artisanal production since the 1950s.

Several public sources indicate that approximately one million ounces of gold have been produced by local miners at Patrocinio. Belo Sun’s geologists have confirmed 19 property locations where current or former gold production has occurred from two types of mineralization: high-grade quartz veins and hydrothermally-altered granites where gold is associated with sulphides.

Within mineralized zones, gold grades have been demonstrated to range from roughly 1 to 67 grams per tonne (g/t) within the quartz veins and from roughly 1 to 37 g/t within the granites. Channel sampling along a quartz vein in the Alcantara pit returned grades ranging from roughly 4 to 37 g/t gold over aapproximately 8 metres.
