A rumour on Anglo American with a big copper porphyry in Brazil

This humble corner of cyberspace receives its share of rumour and hearsay mails and normally, they need a bit of back-up bona fides before making the blog. But sometimes I'm good about running with the intel as-is and here's one of those, from A. Reader. According to the Brazil Mining Department (DNPM) Anglo American has quietly filed for copper exploration permits for all the available mineral rights in the Alta Floresta Gold Province. That's because word on the ground in Mato Grosso is "...they have stumbled upon a massive copper porphyry discovery" and they're keeping it quiet because they want to stake as much as possible first. They've staked another 2.2m hectares in the North of Mato Grosso in the last few weeks but still want more.
