COMMERCIAL PRODUCTION IN THE HEART OF MEXICO’S SILVER BELT.
Located approximately 120 kilometers south of Chihuahua City in the heart of Mexico’s silver belt, the Los Gatos District consists of 14 mineralized zones to date, including three identified silver-lead-zinc deposits: the Cerro Los Gatos Mine, the Esther deposit, and the Amapola deposit. The other 11 mineralized zones, with over 150 kilometers of outcropping quartz and calcite veins, have at least one mineralization intercept. The area is characterized by a predominant silver-lead-zinc epithermal mineralization.
Prior to the initial acquisition of concession rights in April 2006, very limited historical prospecting and exploration had been conducted in the Los Gatos District. However, we were able to acquire concessions and access rights covering approximately 103,000 hectares and soon discovered a virgin silver and zinc region containing multiple zones of high-grade epithermal vein-style mineralization throughout the Los Gatos District concession package.
To date, our focus in the Los Gatos District has been:
- constructing and commissioning the Cerro Los Gatos Mine
- defining and expanding the mineral resources associated with the Cerro Los Gatos Mine, the Esther deposit, and the Amapola deposit.
