Gainey Capital Corp. is pleased to announce the engagement of Minera Cascabel SA de CV as leader of its gold and silver exploration strategy, and the launch of its Phase 1 exploration program in Nayarit, Mexico.
The Company is pleased to announce that Minera Cascabel of Tucson, Arizona and Hermosillo, Mexico has been engaged to lead the Company’s exploration strategy and develop its Phase 1 exploration program at the El Colomo Project, located in the gold/silver-rich Sierra Madre trend in Nayarit and Durango States, Mexico.
Led by principals Peter Megaw, PhD (GeoPh) and Carl Kuehn, PhD, PGeo, Minera Cascabel has a long history of gold/silver and other precious metals exploration success within the Sierra Madre and other parts of Latin America, extending over 25 years. Minera Cascabel’s main focus has consistently been precious metals exploration in Mexico, where they are considered the leading experts for exploration. They have managed large-scale exploration programs for Kennecott, Teck, and BHP, among many others, and have identified and helped bring to market Excellon Resources Inc. (TSX: EXN) Platosa Mine in Durango (the highest grade operating mine in Mexico), MAG Silver’s (TSX: MAG) Juanicipio Project (one of the world’s largest silver discoveries, currently moving towards production with Fresnillo plc LSE: FRES), and MAG Silver’s Cinco de Mayo Project (major CRD discovery).
Minera Cascabel brings a complete technical team of geologists, geotechnicians, and geoscientists to the El Colomo Project. Dr. Megaw and Cascabel’s VP Exploration Kuehn will jointly lead the team, which has already begun consulting with Gainey management to develop a comprehensive Phase 1 exploration plan to systematically explore and develop the El Colomo concessions.
On the engagement, David Coburn, Gainey CEO commented: “Gainey is extremely fortunate to be working with Cascabel and industry luminaries such as Peter Megaw and Carl Kuehn, whose involvement with Gainey we feel is an endorsement of our El Colomo Project. Cascabel adds significantly to our team.”
