$GR.ca Great Atlantic Grab Samples Return up to 40.8% Zinc, 8.3% Copper, 148 G/T Silver and 2.2 G/T Gold

Posted by Er at 8:26 AM on Thursday, December 14th, 2017

  • Sampling returned channel & grab samples from the Bull Road Trench
  • 15.40% Zn, 6.60% Pb, 4.66% Cu, 111.5 g/t Ag and 1.008 g/t Au over 1.05 m
  • Grab samples of trench bedrock returned up to 40.8% Zn, 5.50% Pb, 8.38% Cu, 148.1 g/t Ag and 2.275 g/t Au

 

GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSXV.GR) (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) is pleased to announce it has received analytical results for a second batch of rock samples collected during a recent trenching program at its Pilley’s Island Base Metal – Precious Metal Property, located in north-central Newfoundland. The exploration program was jointly operated with option partner Unity Resources. The samples included channel and grab samples from a recently excavated trench referred to as the Bull Road Trench. Results for channel samples included 15.40% Zn, 6.60% Pb, 4.66% Cu, 111.5 g/t Ag and 1.008 g/t Au over 1.05 meters and 17.30% Zn, 0.10% Pb, 2.97% Cu, 31.2 g/t Ag and 0.449 g/t Au over 0.70 meters. Grab samples of trench bedrock returned up to 40.8% Zn, 5.50% Pb, 8.38% Cu, 148.1 g/t Ag and 2.275 g/t Au. The property hosts an historic copper mine along with zinc, lead, copper (+ / – gold, silver) occurrences.

 

The second batch of trench rock samples were collected at the recently excavated Bull Road Trench, located at the Bull Road Showing. Reported historic trench samples at Bull Road include 12.42% Zn, 3.87% Cu, 0.95% Pb and 0.71 oz./ton Ag over 4.6m. One historic drill hole at this showing was reported to intersect 22.2% Zn, 4.4% Pb, 0.1% Cu and 0.96 oz. / ton Ag over 0.65m core length within an intersection of 7.85m grading 3.41% Zn, 0.66% Cu, 0.51% Pb, and 0.34 oz./ton Ag. The recent trenching program included re-opening and re-evaluating the historic Bull Road Showing.

 

Recent trenching along the trace of the Bull Road Showing exposed mineralization over a northwest-southeast length of 130m with a width varying between 1-7m. The Bull Road Showing is a polylithic slump breccia of volcanogenic massive sulphide mineralization containing massive sulphide clasts up to greater than a metre in length. Five initial rock grab samples included two samples of massive sulfide clasts returning 27.50% Zn, 20.00% Pb, 5.78% Cu and 63.4 g/t Ag; and 16.40% Zn, 6.50% Pb, 2.02% Cu and 41.7 g/t Au, while a sample of another sulfide clast returned 8.36% Cu (News Release of November 16, 2017).

 

The second batch of rock samples from the Bull Road Trench consisted of eight channel samples and seven grab samples, all from clasts of semi-massive sulfide to massive sulfide, including some with pyrite dominant (containing lesser base metal sulfides). The samples were analyzed at Eastern Analytical in Springdale, Newfoundland.

The channel samples were collected in the southeast region of the trench within an approximate 22 meter section of the trench. The channels samples were collected across selected clasts at generally right angles to the long dimension of the clasts. Samples 1256004 and 1256005 were from one continuous 2 meter long channel. Samples 1256007 and 1256008 were also from one continuous 2 meter long channel. The objective was to obtain preliminary data on metal content of clasts. The limited grab sampling extended into the northwest region of the trench, with grab samples collected locally within an approximate 100 meter long section of the trench.

$NSM.ca Arizona Soil Geochemical Sampling Program Returns Elevated Copper-Molybdenum Values

Posted by Er at 1:14 PM on Tuesday, December 12th, 2017

 

    • Black Diamond Property borders Freeport McMoRan’s open pit operations.
    • Intensive Geochemical Survey recovered systematic soil samples on a 50-metre spaced grid
    • Significant anomalous Copper, Zinc and Silver values approach grades at which some deposits are mined
    • Elevated Copper in association with elevated Molybdenum levels, two metals found in association with porphyry copper environments.

Northern Sphere Mining Corp. (CSE: NSM) (OTCQB: NSMCF) (“Northern Sphere” or the “Company”) ‎is pleased to provide an update on its Geochemical Survey being conducted on its Black Diamond Property which borders the Porphyry Copper Mining District in Miami, Arizona.

Figure 1: Miami-Globe, Arizona — NSM’s Black Diamond Claims

Northern Sphere has undertaken an intensive Geochemical Survey over its 3,800-acre Black Diamond Property, located 12 km (8 miles) north-east of Freeport McMoRan’s Open Pit Copper Operations. The Geochemical Survey recovered systematic soil samples on a 50-metre spaced grid. Each sample was submitted to ALS Laboratories for a 51 Element Aqua-Regia digestion and ICP-MS finish.

The survey currently comprises of more than 600 samples from three prospective areas encompassing approximately 370 acres: (i) the Richmond Basin and site of historic underground silver mines, (ii) Buckeye South and (iii) Black Copper where previous outcrop sampling (outcrop samples were grab samples selectively taken within the mineralized structure and therefore are not representative of the entire mineralization) yielded copper values up to 7% (see Trueclaim Exploration Inc. press release of September 29, 2011).

Initial results from the first 250 geochemical samples taken in the Richmond Basin area delineated areas of anomalous (as defined by the values of the sample population greater than the 90th percentile) copper with some significantly anomalous results (exceeding the 98th percentile) as 1,040 parts per million (ppm), 522 ppm, and 340 ppm. Areas defined by anomalous silver were also noted with values reported as high as 344 grams per tonne (g/t) (see the Company’s prior press release of November 11, 2017).

Significantly anomalous copper, zinc and silver values approaching grades at which some deposits are mined is very encouraging. Previous exploration undertaken on the property limits the Company’s ability to gauge the background values for potential economic minerals and their relative proximity to the source bedrock.

Interpreting anomalous trends will be aided by exploration techniques and services which combine Hyper-Spectral Imaging, Geophysical Survey re-inversion, Digital Geologic Modelling, Artificial Intelligence which utilizes machine learning and mineral related algorithms to optimize mineral targeting.

A second soil survey area consisting of 224 samples collected from the Buckeye South area returned exceptional results defining areas with both anomalous copper (values greater than 123 ppm) and zinc (with value highs of 7,660 ppm, 4,820 ppm, and 4,770 ppm). Figure 2 depicts some of these anomalous trends.

Figure 2: NSM Black Diamond Soil Geochemical Survey

More recent geochemical soil sampling from the Black Copper area yielded excellent results. Forty-six percent of the 135 samples collected at this location have copper results that exceed 100 ppm (or 100 g/t). Notable copper values that were strongly anomalous (greater than 97th percentile) analyzed from this location resulted in 634 ppm, 503 ppm and 496 ppm.

Manganese levels indicated from the soil survey were anomalous with all sample results exceeding 100 ppm. Soils samples collected from the Black Copper area all had manganese levels exceeding 200 ppm (72 soil samples were in excess of 1,000 ppm or 0.1%). Manganese, which is often found in association with other notable metals such as lead, silver, zinc, copper and vanadium has been mined in the Globe-Miami, Arizona area. Although considered a “strategic mineral” in the United States, Manganese is predominantly sourced outside the United States, primarily from China and South Africa.

With ongoing Geochemical Survey activities, the Company anticipates that it will continue to identify significant metal anomalies on the property. Steve Gray, Vice President of Northern Sphere, states, “One of the more encouraging geochemical trends is the correlation between results indicating significantly elevated copper in association with elevated molybdenum levels, two metals found in association with porphyry copper environments.”

In support of a potential porphyry environment, O.M. Bishop mapped andesite porphyry in the Richmond Basin, while researching for his Master’s thesis, ‘Geology and Ore Deposits Richmond Basin, Gila County’.

Mr. Gray adds, “The Geochemical Survey covers only 10% of the Black Diamond Property and already we have encountered various significant anomalous metals. The property is located up gradient from Freeport McMoRan’s porphyry copper mines ensuring soil geochemistry results are local to Northern Sphere’s mineral claims.”

$GLI.ca Glacier Lake Acquires Silver Star Property $GTT.ca $JAX.ca

Posted by Er at 9:37 AM on Monday, December 4th, 2017

 

  • Signed a definitive agreement to acquire the Silver Star property, 72km S/E of Houston
  • Property represents a strategic acquisition in an emerging exploration area.

 

Glacier Lake Resources Inc. (TSXV:GLI) (“Glacier” or the “Company”) has signed a definitive agreement with an arm’s-length vendor to acquire the Silver Star property, located approximately 72 kilometers southeast of Houston B.C.

Historic exploration work in 2015 discovered a surface mineral showing where a grab sample of malachite and azurite stained siliceous andesite returned a value of 317 grams per tonne silver (g/t) Ag or 9.15 ounces silver per ton and 0.39% copper, with anomalous lead (0.80 % Pb) and zinc (0.08% Zn). The sample was not assayed for gold. Investors are cautioned grab samples are selective samples and are not necessarily representative of the mineralization hosted on the property. Investors should also note Glacier Lake has not verified the data. There is no record of prior or subsequent historic exploration on the Silver Star property.

“The Silver Star property represents a further strategic acquisition in an emerging exploration area of central British Columbia, energized by the exploration success of New Nadina on the Silver Queen property. Acquiring a project with significant silver values in prospective geology in an attractive structural setting with only limited exploration history serves as a focal point for further discoveries” stated Saf Dhillon, Glacier Lake’s president and chief executive officer. “With excellent road access, exploration activities can continue on the property year-round.”

The Silver Star property is underlain by Cretaceous Kasalka group andesitic volcanics and Middle Jurassic Bowser Lake group clastic sediments. A Geological Survey of Canada (GSC) 1992 structural study shows the Silver Star property is located within bounding NW-SE regional fault structures that extend south from the Equity Silver Mine, where historic production of 33.8 million tonnes grading 0.4 per cent copper, 64.9 grams per tonne silver and 0.46 gram per tonne gold was recorded between 1990 and 1994. Glacier Lake has not verified the historic Equity Silver Mine production and further cautions investors the mineralization at Equity Silver is not necessarily indicative of mineralization at Silver Star.

The 1992 GSC structural study indicates the Silver Star property straddles the junction of the western portion of the Cheslatta Caldera Complex, the northern portion of the Quanchus Caldera, and the south-eastern extension of the Buck Creek Caldera (host of the Equity Silver Mine). Glacier Lake feels the interpretation of multiple caldera features with associated silver values at the Silver Star property has similarities with the caldera hosted New Nadina Explorations Silver Queen vein system located 42 kilometres to the northwest.

The newly discovered mineral showing consists of mini-quartz stockworks, brecciation and quartz/ chalcedony alteration. Prospecting in 2015 focused on a highly siliceous gossanous andesite outcrop with azurite/malachite oxidation and possible tetrahedrite. Other samples in the general area reported moderate Fe stained chalcedonic veining with a smoky matrix. A second grab sample in the discovery outcrop area returned 42.7 g/t Ag, 310 parts per million (ppm) Cu. 563 ppm Pb, and 585 ppm Zn.

In consideration for the property, Glacier Lake will issue one million common shares. Completion of the acquisition is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange. All common shares issued will be subject to a four-month-and-one-day statutory hold period.

$GR.ca Great Atlantic Drills Keymet Base Metal Project, Newfoundland

Posted by Er at 9:00 AM on Wednesday, October 18th, 2017

  • Keymet is a past producing Pollymetallic property
  • Hole Ky-17-6 included 50M of arsenopyrite which has traditionally carried gold at Keymet
  • Pollymetallic mines are the most sought after Base Metal projects due to presence of multiple ore types

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSXV.GR) (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) is pleased to announce it has completed a diamond drilling program at its Keymet Precious – Base Metal Property, located near Bathurst, northeast New Brunswick. The Keymet property hosts multiple gold, silver, zinc, lead and / or copper occurrences and the Keymet deposit, site of the historic Keymet Mine. The drilling program (5 holes totalling 679 meters) was conducted in the northwest region of the property, northwest of the historic Keymet Mine.

 

“We are very encourage at this year’s drill program and are enthusiastically awaiting all the results but particularly interested in the unexpected arsenopyrite within a 50 meter core length interval in hole Ky-17-6, traditionally arsenopyrite has carried Gold on this property.  As well we want to say a special thanks to Don and the guys at Orbit Garant Drilling, excellent job “Says: Christopher R Anderson CEO

The program tested the continuation of zinc, copper and silver bearing veins and a gold mineralization intersected by Great Atlantic during 2015 diamond drilling and trenching programs. All five holes intersected veins hosting base metal sulfides while three holes also intersected arsenopyrite mineralization. Gold mineralization on the property is associated with arsenopyrite.  The Company is conducting systematic sampling of mineralized drill core from the recent program.

 

Gold bearing boulders (samples up to 51 grams / tonne (g/t) Au) and gold bearing bedrock in trenches and drill core have been discovered by Great Atlantic in the northwest region of the property. Great Atlantic drilled two holes in 2015 at one site in this region (Ky-15-3 and Ky-15-4), approximately 1.4 kilometers of the historic Keymet Mine, in an area referred to as the Elmtree 12 occurrence. Both 2015 holes intersected base metal and silver bearing veins (including 16.68% zinc, 1.11% copper and 152.0 g/t silver over 1.80 metre core length in Ky-15-3 and 8.68% zinc and 44.8 g/t silver Ag over 4.28 metre core length in Ky-15-4). Hole Ky-15-3 also intersected a gold bearing interval (3.28 g/t Au over 2.1 meter core length). The true width of these initial 2015 drill intersections is unknown at this time. The recent drilling tested the continuation of this base metal and precious metal mineralization.

Each of the 2017 drill holes intersected veins with copper, lead and zinc sulfide mineralization. Arsenopyrite mineralization has been observed in three of these holes. Gold mineralization in boulders and bedrock in this area is associated with arsenopyrite.

 

Holes Ky-17-5, 6, 7 and 9 of the recent program were drilled in the same area as 2015 holes Ky-15-3 and 4. Each of these four holes intersected base metal bearing veins. Company management are interpreting the main veins to be within a steep dipping to vertical vein system to strike approximately north – south, with all Great Atlantic drill intersections to date being within an approximately 70 meter strike length and shallow (above 100 meter vertical depth).  Hole Ky-17-6 intersected local arsenopyrite within an approximate 50 meter core length interval appearing to be east to northeast of the main base metal bearing vein zone.  Holes Ky-17-5 and 7 also intersected local arsenopyrite.

Vein containing zinc and lead sulfide mineralization in hole Ky-17-8

 

Hole Ky-17-8, located approximately 80 meters southwest of holes Ky-17-5, 6 and 7, tested the down-dip extension of a gold bearing zone discovered by the Company in a 2015 trench (channel samples returning 1.1 g/t Au over 4.9 meters). The gold bearing zone in the trench is characterized by minor arsenopyrite in metasediments and increased quartz veining. A fault zone is also exposed in the trench hosting base metal and silver mineralization (2015 grab sample returned 8.99% lead, 1.76% zinc, 0.80% copper and 237 g/t silver). Arsenopyrite is not apparent in Ky-17-8 drill core. However quartz veining was intersected under the trench gold zone. The hole also intersected veins with base metal sulfides approximately vertically under the trench fault zone.

 

Closed-spaced 1980s diamond drill holes (Brunswick Mining and Smelting and Aurtec Inc.) in the area of holes Ky-15-3, 4, Ky-17-5, 6, 7 and 9 intersected near-surface mineralized veins (Elmtree 12 vein occurrence). A 0.88 metre core length interval from a 1981 drill hole was reported to grade 7.72% Cu, 11.36% Zn an 13.6 ounces per ton Ag. A 1.22 metre core length sample from a near-by 1989 drill hole was reported to assay 16.4% Cu, 10.11% Zn and 31.0 ounces per ton Ag. The true width of these intersections is unknown. These drill intersections are within 50 metre vertical depth. Great Atlantic personnel found loose casing in this area during 2015. It is uncertain which historic hole this represents.

 

Access to the property is excellent with paved roads transecting the property, including a provincial highway. The property covers an area of approximately 3,400 hectares.

$NSM.ca Northern Sphere Geochemical Soil Survey indicates elevated presence of Silver, Nickel, Cobalt & Zinc

Posted by Er at 9:07 AM on Wednesday, October 11th, 2017

https://s3.amazonaws.com/s3.agoracom.com/public/companies/logos/564605/hub/NSM.png

    • Strategic soil survey conducted between historic McMorris and La Plata Silver Mines on Black Diamond
    • More than one third of the first 250 samples taken had silver values greater than 1 g/t
    • Ten percent of the 250 samples yielded silver values greater than 10 g/t
    • Results are highly encouraging, company committed to further exploration

Northern Sphere Mining Corp. (CSE: NSM) (OTCQB: NSMCF) (“Northern Sphere” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide an update on its Geochemical Survey being conducted on its Black Diamond Property, located next to Freeport McMoRan’s open pit copper mines, and to provide details on recent diamond drilling completed on its patented Buckeye Project.

In efforts to unlock the potential of its Black Diamond Property, which borders the Porphyry Copper Mining District in Miami, Arizona, Northern Sphere has undertaken an intensive Geochemical Soil Survey over its 3,800-acre property culminating with a 35 Element Aqua Regia ICP-AES analysis.

In addition to using geochemical surveys and geologic, geophysical and outcrop sampling data, Northern Sphere is now employing “cutting-edge” Exploration Targeting Technologies to better and more precisely identify drilling targets. Such technologies use Hyperspectral Satellite Imaging in conjunction with ground geochemical data to re-compute existing geophysical survey data to depict more precise 3D signal locations.

Preliminary results from the first 250 geochemical samples analyzed are extremely encouraging. The strategic soil survey, which began near the historic McMorris and La Plata Silver Mines, demonstrated anomalous copper, zinc, and nickel values along with significantly anomalous (up to 344 g/t) silver values (see Figures 4 & 5). More than one third of the first 250 samples taken had silver values greater than 1 g/t (see Figure 3). Ten percent of the 250 samples yielded silver values greater than 10 g/t. A second set of 224 geochemical samples has been collected and shipped to ALS Laboratories for analysis.

During October, Northern Sphere personnel is focusing on geochemical grid sampling efforts on the documented copper anomalies located on the Black Diamond Property. An area of particular interest to Northern Sphere is a documented iron-copper-gold showing which had a Permit to Drill previously submitted to the Forestry Department.

Buckeye Patent – Diamond Drilling

Over the summer, Northern Sphere drilled 14 surface diamond drill holes on its patented Buckeye Project. The drilling targeted structures similar to those which apparently hosted sufficient quantities of silver to warrant extraction from the historic Buckeye Mine.

The drilling was successful in identifying anomalous silver values below several documented highgrade surface and underground showings. The drilling yielded anomalous silver below both the “Square Nail” shaft, and the former Buckeye Mine.

Thirteen of the fourteen holes drilled intercepted the perceived host structure up to 250 metres below the underground workings for a strike length of 400 metres. The width of the structure, and its corresponding alteration, varied between two and six metres. Of the14 holes drilled, 10 of such holes contained intercepts considered to be anomalous. The intercepts contained elevated silver and copper levels varying from 3 g/t to 179 g/t silver and upwards of 4,600 ppm copper. Table 1 depicts most of the noteworthy intercepts.

Combined with surface and underground samples, the diamond drilling has assisted in identifying four areas hosting anomalous to high grade silver (see Figure 5). The drilling results are encouraging and will assist with future drill targeting. Underground rehabilitation could provide better strategic diamond drilling platforms and would allow for the re-accessing of historic mineralized development.

  • Drill Permits cover 10,000m of drilling
  • Allows for up to 40 drill sites
  • Drilling targeting Silver & Copper mineralization

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 12, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Glacier Lake Resources Inc. (TSX-V:GLI) (“Glacier” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce that it has been granted permit approval by the British Columbia Ministry of Energy and Mines for drilling and trenching activities on the company’s flagship Silver Vista copper-silver project, located near Smithers, British Columbia. The Mines Act Permit (MX-1-987) allows for up to 40 drill sites, 10,000 meters of drilling and 10 trench/pit sites, over a 5 (five) year period. The objective of the drilling program is to verify and expand the copper-silver mineralization intersected in the 1991 and 1992 historical drilling programs. Equity Silver Mines Limited completed fourteen drill holes (1992) totaling 1,252.5 metres. Equity identified a semi-continuous zone 300 metres long by 50 metres wide by 3 to 150 metres deep with two of the holes ending in mineralization. Key intercepts include: MR91-01 – 32.87 metres at 0.19% Cu and 34.8 gpt Ag, MR91-03 – 61.91 metres at 0.11% Cu and 40.5 gpt Ag, MR91-04 – 25.9 metres at 0.08% Cu and 62.6 gpt Ag and MR92-02 – 36.58 metres at 0.49% Cu and 26.8 gpt Ag. Hole MR92-02 intersected a higher-grade intersection of 2.84 meters averaged 195.7 g/t Ag and 3.65 % Cu at a depth of 192.62 meters, and this represents the only deep hole to test this zone, and is a primary drill target for follow-up.

 

Glacier Lake Resources Inc. has yet to verify the Equity exploration date. Data verification is one of the primary objectives of this drilling program.

 

“We look forward to commencing the first drill program on the Silver Vista since 1992″ said Saf Dhillon, President and Chief Executive Officer. “The focus of this fall’s campaign will be to confirm and expand the higher-grade mineralization intersected in hole 92-02 and to test the potential of the large silver-in-soil geochemical anomaly, measuring 1.5 by 2.0 kilometers.”

 

Further details can be found in the recently completed 43-101 report on the property located under the Company’s SEDAR profile.

Eloro $ELO.ca Resources receives drill permit at La Victoria $TTC.ca

  • Received its permiso para inicio de las actividades de exploracion (drilling permit) 
  • Authorizes the drilling of up to 10 sites within the Rufina zone of the La Victoria gold/silver project, Pallasca province, Ancash department, Peru

ELORO RESOURCES RECEIVES DRILLING PERMIT FOR THE LA VICTORIA GOLD/SILVER PROJECT DRILL PROGRAM

Eloro Resources Ltd.’s wholly owned Peruvian subsidiary Compania Minera Eloro Peru SAC has received its permiso para inicio de las actividades de exploracion (drilling permit) that authorizes the drilling of up to 10 sites within the Rufina zone of the La Victoria gold/silver project, Pallasca province, Ancash department, Peru.

The Drilling Permit is the final requirement to obtain the water permit. The ANA (Peru Water Authority) has already carried out its Property inspection and is now reviewing Eloro’s application. In the meantime, field crews are now proceeding with preparation of the approved drill sites and carrying out improvements to the existing public trail system.

“We are delighted to be on the verge of drilling the La Victoria Gold/Silver Project’s Rufina zone”, said CEO Thomas G. Larsen, “This zone has never been drill-tested even though significant gold mineralization outcrops at surface. Our fall 2016 IP/Res survey identified a large spatially-correlated chargeability and resistivity area beneath the Rufina zone which also will be tested.”

Dr. Bill Pearson, P.Geo., Chief Technical Advisor for Eloro commented: “Recent geological work indicates that the mineralized target zone in Victoria-Victoria South which is up to 200 metres wide extends south for at least 2 kilometres along strike and likely connects with the Rufina zone. This is part of an extensive multi-phase epithermal gold-silver mineralizing system on the La Victoria property centred around the Puca Fault and environs (see press release August 8, 2017). We plan to carry out an aggressive drill program at Rufina while at the same time proceeding with drill permit applications for the other major target areas.”

The Rufina zone is located within the district of Huandoval where Eloro has good social support. District authorities are also favourable to economic development in partnership with the mineral exploration industry. Eloro currently has 14 Huandoval employees working for the IP/Res survey operating within the new Victoria-Victoria South discovery area.

With the award of an option to earn 25% of the Property to EHR Resources Ltd (ASX:EHX) through its Peruvian subsidiary EHR del Peru S.A.C., Eloro is fully financed to carry out the drilling at Rufina. A contract has been signed with Energold Drilling Peru S.A.C., for up to 5000 metres of NTW diamond drilling. The portable drill rig employed by Energold can be readily moved by existing public trails and requires only minimal drill pad preparation.”

About Eloro Resources Ltd.

Eloro is an exploration and mine development company with a portfolio of gold and base-metal properties in Peru and Quebec. Eloro owns a 100% interest in the La Victoria Gold/Silver Project, located in the North-Central Mineral Belt of Peru some 50 km south of Barrick’s Lagunas Norte Gold Mine and Tahoe’s La Arena Gold Mine. The Property consists of eight mining concessions and eight mining claims encompassing approximately 89 square kilometres. The Property has good infrastructure with access to road, water and electricity and is located at an altitude that ranges from 3,100 m to 4,200 m above sea level.
