Today we went deep on Filo Mining with CEO Jamie Beck.
Filo have discovered & are advancing the Filo Del Sol copper-gold-silver project high up in the Andes.
They fly under the radar in Australia but given their scale and our lack of copper opportunities we thought they’d be worth a chat.
We grilled Jamie on all the challenges that come along with working at 4000m+ elevation, on an isolated project spread across two countries with a rumoured capex figure in the many billions.
