- Hole OR-09-200 recorded 12.19 metres of 8.51 g/t gold equivalent or 511 g/t silver equivalent (3.39 g/t gold and 307 g/t silver)
The Orion Project lies in the Sierra Madre Occidental, a prolific mining district in northern Mexico. The project hosts a series of old high-grade silver and gold mines, all of which lie in an east-west vein system. This vein system may be an unrecognized bonanza silver-gold district, similar to other Ag-Au bonanza epithermal vein districts of Western Mexico, such as Tayoltita District. Early results from Phase I drilling on the Animas Vein are pointing to bonanza potential. These types of mineral systems can extend for considerable distances and up to 1000 metres depth.
