Horizonte Minerals plc

Organization Profile

Horizonte Minerals Plc. is an AIM and TSX quoted exploration and development company focussed on mineral projects in Brazil.  Horizonte has two commited major mining partners: Teck Resources Limited, a strategic 44 percent shareholder and AngloGold Ashanti.

Principal projects include the wholly-owned Araguaia Nickel Project in the Carajás mineral district of northern Brazil which the Company acquired in August 2010 from Teck Resources Limited.  The Board believes the Araguaia Project has the potential to define a 100 million tonne resource and is currently focussed on bringing the Project to the Feasibility Study stage. 

Horizonte also has two agreements in place with AngloGold Ashanti Limited; a US$5.3 million exploration alliance to generate and develop new and existing gold targets in Brazil and a US$4.5 million JV to fast-track resource drilling at the Company's Falcao gold project in northern Brazil.

The group is led by a management team with over 50 years of combined experience in the South American exploration and mining industry.
