Two companies reported drilling results from two different projects/targets each during the week. Alamos Gold released assays from drilling at Puerto del Aire and Capulin, targets within the large land package of its Mulatos property, in Sonora. Puerto del Aire “is a higher-grade underground deposit located adjacent to the main Mulatos pit”, comprising the PDA, Gap, Victor, and Estrella zones. Reserves of 728 K Oz Au grading 4.84 gpt have been defined in Puerto del Aire. The Capulin area is two Km from the San Carlos pit, and has seen limited historical exploration. The recent intercept of oxide and sulfide mineralization is in a breccia unit of the Capulin Fault Zone. Mulatos is one of the largest examples of high sulfidation gold mineralization in Mexico.
Guanajuato Silver drilling results from San Ignacio, in Guanajuato, are part of a program focusing in extending mineralization on the Melladito and Purisima veins. The veins in San Ignacio form part of a low sulfidation epithermal system. At Topia, in Durango, recent drilling has been focused on the Prieta, Dos Amigos, Rosario and U.D. Pueblo veins. Mineralization in the district known for its narrow metal-rich veins is of intermediate sulfidation epithermal affinity.
