Antas is a high-grade open pit copper-gold mine located in the Carajás, 25 kilometres southeast of Parauapebas, in the state of Pará in the Northern region of Brazil.
The Carajás is one of the world’s premier iron oxide copper-gold (IOCG) mineral provinces and is host to the world’s largest iron ore mine and sizeable copper gold mines.
The mine entered commercial production in July 2016 and has good geology with high-grade mineralisation, lending itself to efficient and low-cost mining and processing techniques.
Antas is located on low hilly ground. The climate in the region is tropical and humid with two distinct seasons. The dry season extends from June to September and the rainy season from October to May. Annual rainfall is approximately 1,600mm.
