Pillar Property

The Pilar Gold-Silver property is interpreted as a structurally controlled low sulphidation epithermal project hosted in andesitic rocks. Three zones of mineralization have been identified in the northwest portion of the property from surface work and historical drilling and are referred to as the Main Zone, North Hill and 4-Trench. The structural features and zones of mineralization within the structures follow an overall NW-SE trend of mineralization. More than 22,700 m of drilling has been completed to date. Significant results are highlighted below:

  • 2021 Phase II RC drilling highlights include (all lengths are drilled thicknesses):

    • 39.7 m at 0.96 g/t Au, including 1.5 m at 14. g/t Au;

    • 47.7 m @ 0.70 g/t Au including 3 m @ 5.6 g/t Au and 22 g/t Ag;

    • 29m @ 0.71g/t Au;

    • 35.1 m at 0.66 g/t Au

  • RC Drilling Phase I 2020 Highlights include (all lengths are drilled thicknesses

    • 94.6 m at 1.6 g/t Au, including 9.2 m at 10.8 g/t Au and 38 g/t Ag

    • 41.2 m at 1.1 g/t Au, including 3.1 m at 6.0 g/t Au and 12 g/t Ag;

    • 24.4 m @ 2.5 g/t Au and 73 g/t Ag, including 1.5 m @ 33.4 g/t Au and 1,090 g/t Ag

  • 17,700m of RC Historic Core drilling. Highlights include:

Soil and rock sampling results from the undrilled areas indicate that mineralization extends to the southeast from the main zone and the 4 trench zone. Recent surface exploration has defined three new target zones: the Triple Vein Zone, the SE Vein Zone and the 4-trench extension.

El Picacho property

The El Picacho Gold-Silver property is interpreted as an orogenic gold system within the Caborca ​​regional orogenic gold belt known to produce gold mines that include La Herradura and San Francisco. The project is 140 kilometers north of Hermosillo and totals 2,414 hectares. Five main zones of mineralization have been identified on the property totaling over six kilometers of prospective trends. Surface sampling has identified high grade gold and silver values. The five main focus areas are summarized below:

  • San Ramon

    • Prospective trend of 1.4 km;

    • Several historical mine workings associated with low-angle faults;

    • Highlights of historical drilling (both were non-follow-up reconnaissance holes):

      • (RCP-02 borehole) 10.7m @ 0.67 g/t Au, including 4.6 m @ 1.4 g/t Au
