J.K. Mining Corporation’s interest in Ecuador lies in the southern province of Zamora-Chinchipe, near the city of Zamora and lies in a region of ancient volcanism.

The project is located within a flexure of a thrust and fold belt of tertiary volcanism that runs the entire length of Peru and contains some of the world’s most prospective gold mines, including Lagunas Norte and Yanacocha, two of the world’s largest gold mines.
