About Amarillo Gold Corporation
Amarillo is developing a highly economic, open pit gold resource at its Mara Rosa deposit in the mining friendly jurisdiction of the Goias State in Brazil. In addition, Amarillo has an advanced exploration project with excellent grades at Lavras do Sul. Both projects have excellent infrastructure. The Mara Rosa project was awarded the main permit last year that gives social and environment permission to mine. This has allowed Amarillo to move forward and work on their construction permit. Construction is expected next year.
