Property Highlights:

  • The Socorro property, located in Sonora, Mexico, consists of four claims known as El Socorro Frac. 1, El Socorro Frac. 2 El Socorro Frac. 3 and Tizoc R1 covering 38,654 hectares staked by the Company in 2011. The Socorro claims covers 50 km along the strike of the northwest extension of Alamos' Chanate district (Fig. 2).
     
  • The Socorro property is a regional gold exploration play with dozens of pits and placer deposits with excellent potential to host both bulk open-pit, heap-leachable deposits as well as high-grade gold in high-angle structures. The southern part of the concession covers the northern extension of Alamo's El Chanate mine, while the central and northern portion cover a regional structure over 10 km long (Fig. 3).
     
  • Work to date on the property includes interpretation of ASTER images, surface reconnaissance and geological mapping. During the first half of 2015, the Company carried out extensive rock chip sampling as part of a property-wide geological reconnaissance, followed up by a 8,000-sample soil geochemical survey in selected areas.
