The La Plata deposit is a Paleocene Kurkoko-type high grade gold enriched VMS deposit with significant copper and zinc mineralization. The deposit lies along the western flank of the Cordillera Occidental, a Cretaceous and Paleocene island arc environment comprising a submarine volcano-sedimentary sequence of basaltic to andesitic composition. 

The western flank of the Cordillera Occidental hosts numerous VMS deposits of which La Plata is one of the most important. The entire 100-km VMS trend remains under explored and hosts significant potential for numerous Noranda-like mineralized lenses and deposits.
