Target Area: Pánuco
Location, Geology and Mineralization
The Pánuco target area is located in the northeastern part of the Zacatecas district about 10 kilometers east of the Muleros area and is comprised of two main veins hosted in sedimentary rocks that outcrop for an aggregate of about 5 kilometers in a northwesterly
direction. Vein widths range from one to three meters. Several small pits indicate mining of silver from oxidized surface rocks during
Colonial times. There has been no modern exploration at Pánuco. We have mapped the area in detail and collected approximately 400
samples from the veins and wall rocks.
We are currently conducting a second phase drill program consisting of 18 to 20 diamond core holes totaling about 4,000 meters
at an estimated cost of approximately $700,000. If the results from this work appear promising, we intend to conduct additional
drilling and analytical work to advance the project in 2011.
Assay and Drill Results
Cautionary Note regarding Estimates of Measured, Indicated and Inferred Resources: The United States Securities and Exchange Commission permits mining companies, in their filings with the SEC, to disclose only those mineral deposits that a company can economically and legally extract or produce. We use certain terms in this presentation, such as “indicated” and “inferred resources” that the SEC guidelines strictly prohibit us from including in our filings with the SEC. US investors are cautioned not to assume that any or all of measured, indicated or inferred resources are economically or legally mineable or that these resources will ever be converted into reserves. US investors are urged to consider closely the disclosure in our Form 10-K and other SEC filings.
