The Company is pleased to announce that the 2016 exploration program on its 100% owned san Timoteo property located in the Uruachic district of Northwest Mexico is now underway. The program will involve using the Company’s Terraspec machine to analyze clay minerals from existing drill core and other samples especially from the area of the 500 level San Martin adit. This will allow the company to build a 3D model of clay mineralogy which will aid in the planning of future drill holes.
The most recent exploration on the San Timoteo property has been concentrated in the area of the past producing San Martin mine. The principal workings at San Martin are at the 500 level adit, which has a diameter of over 3 metres, making it the largest diameter old tunnel in the district. The 500 level is approximately 500 metres long and is also the only old working in the Uruachic District known to have used tracks.
The mapping and sampling program revealed that there are three mineralized shoots exposed within San Martin. A zone of manto, or blanket, style mineralzation was also identified in this area. The shoot closest to the entrance of the 500 level tunnel is known as Manatial. This structure is exposed for 32 metres with a weighted average of 0.301 ppm gold and 212 ppm silver. In the central area of the tunnel, the La Cascada structure is exposed for 78 metres and averages 0.629 ppm gold and 68 ppm silver. At the far end of the 500 level, the Pozo de Agua structure is exposed for at least 84 metres, with continuous channel sampling averaging 0.795 ppm gold and 251 ppm silver. Additional non continuous sampling outside of this section also returned good values. The true thickness and grade of the blanket or manto style mineralization is not certain due to limited exposure.
Modelling of the three shoots dimensions and grades below the 500 level is uncertain due to lack of drill data in the specific areas, but relatively nearby drill holes do show significant mineralization. Potential for deeper, porphyry-related copper and gold mineralization was identified.
The Company’s recent option agreement on its other Uruachic properties allows the Company to remain debt free and focus future exploration on its San Timoteo property.
