Gold, silver and copper, in these three elements drilling at the Dios Padre project in Sonora by Regency Silver topped the best intercepts of the week. The best intercept, 53.80 m @ 4.70 gpt Au, comes from an area 500 meters from the small silver resource already outlined, targeting a geophysical anomaly. The project is located on the Santa Rosa de Yecora mining district in Sonora, known mainly for the development of breccias in the contacts or near the contacts of an intrusive stock some 20 x 15 kilometers with ragged borders. Minera Alamos is currently mining the Santana project, Magna Gold has published in the last few years about its Mercedes project, Centerra drilled one more property in the district not long ago. The breccias can be rich in copper-molybdenum (Los Verdes), tungsten, gold (Santana), silver (Dios Padre, Guadalupe de Tayopa) or a combination of these elements. With the recent published intercepts by Regency Silver, more drilling is expected to come, and more attention to the district.
The intercepts from Panuco and Los Reyes in Sinaloa come from intermediate sulfidation epithermal mineralization in structures. The Avino mine results from Durango can be either categorizad as intermediate sulfidation epithermal in nature, or distal mineralization to a porphyry copper system, as recently suggested by Avino Silver on their press release.
