gold and copper-gold development stage properties, exploration
properties and land positions in all major mineral areas in Brazil.
Yamana expects to produce gold at intermediate company production levels

plans to build on this base by targeting other gold consolidation
opportunities in Brazil and elsewhere in Latin America.
