BBX Minerals Projects

Exploration Portfolio

 The BBX Minerals portfolio consists of three projects located in the Apuí region for a total of 34,044.16 hectares.

These three projects are located in a very favourable geological setting initially known for Garimpeiro artisanal mining and prospecting activity. The Apuí region presents good infrastructure, and remains vastly under-explored, providing BBX with the potential for a pipeline of high-growth, greenfields precious metals discoveries.

Apuí has direct access to the Trans-Amazonian Highway. It has a commercial airport and river port. The Apuí town is located approximately 500km south of Manaus, the capital of the Amazonas State. 

BBX owns 100% of these projects.
