- Rock Chip Sampling
Old small underground mining works, trenches and pits are indicative of past significant mining activity. Worth noting, are the large areas of placer gold located East of the concession zones, where geology mapping reveals orogenic or related intrusion gold deposit features, indicating potential for exploration comparable to the San Francisco or La Herradura mines.
Sheared granite 130 degrees azimuth with quartz micro-veinlets + Sericite alteration affected by late faulting 330 degrees azimuth in the San Martin target
San Judas is a Tier 1 exploration property hosting structurally controlled gold mineralization within lithologies similar in age to the La Herradura and San Francisco gold mines.
343 samples have been taken, 77 (22%) greater than 0.50 g/t Au.
Assays results varying from 0.5 g/t Au to 26 g/t Au outline a broad area (5 km x 2 km) of structurally controlled gold mineralization in gneiss and granites.
At least 4 different targets have been identified by historical sampling and confirmed 3 more, all with proven gold mineralization by recent chips rock and soil sampling.
We are evaluating our geologic and geochemical data to design a drill program for 2020.
