Several companies posted interesting lead and zinc intercepts during the quarter from projects in Mexico. As many base metals deposits in Mexico are polymetallic, it is not surprising that all projects with good lead intercepts are also in the list of good zinc intercepts. Lead tends to be less common than zinc in mineral deposits in Mexico, and this is reflected in the higher gpt*m for zinc, although exceptions do exist.
Los Gatos Silver’s intercepts from Cerro Los Gatos in Chihuahua presented the highest lead and zinc results for the quarter.
The list below is dominated by intermediate sulfidation epithermal deposits, with the exception of Cordero, which shows a complex mix of skarn, reemplacement and intermediate sulfidation epithermal mineralization, and Bolivar, a copper skarn possibly associated to a porphyry copper environment .
