The Taca Taca Group is named for and located in the Sierra de Taca Taca range, in the western Puna of Argentina. The range is composed of uplifted Ordovician granite cross-cut by younger dyke systems and overlain by later volcanic units. The western Puna is a newly recognized IOCG belt of Tertiary age, and also hosts the Taca Taca Alto porphyry (Richards et al., 2007).
30 km west of the village of Tolar Grande and some 300 km from the city of Salta, the properties are reached by an all-weather-road to the western edge of Salar Arizaro and First Quantum’s Taca Taca Mining Group property. From there, access is by 4 x 4 trucks and all terrane vehicles (ATVs). Immediately north of the properties is the railway between Chile and Argentina.
The Taca Taca Group is the subject of Cascadero’s 2017-2018 exploration projects.
