Macusani controls over 20,000 hectares (2,000 km2) of mineral properties in Peru--Macusani, Munani, Lagunillas and Rio Blanco, all regions in Puno in southeastern Peru, where it is exploring for large, open pitable uranium deposits. A 6,500 m diamond drilling program is underway on the Macusani Plateau along a 4km long radiometric anomaly; assay results for the first series of drill holes are expected to be released shortly.
