Castelo de Sonhos was one of the most famous and gold rich alluvial garimpos in all the Tapajós. The main gold rush took place there between 1985 and 1990 and it is estimated that 300,000 ounces of gold has been produced. By early 1995, Barrick Gold began to pay attention and soon recognised that the source of the alluvial gold was the Castelo de Sonhos plateau. So, in June 1995, after optioning the property, Barrick started an aggressive exploration program and discovered the conglomerate hosted gold mineralization.
