Previously, PPL had entered a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with FWO to foster strategic cooperation on the EL-207 Project. The block is believed to have significant potential for porphyry-type deposits, including copper and gold. This agreement lays the foundation for a long-term partnership, offering strategic advantages within the mineral-rich Chagai metallogenic belt and is poised to transform the mining landscape in Balochistan.
