Plomosas Silver Challenge
GR Silver Mining’s 8,515 ha Plomosas Silver Challenge is situated close to the historic mining village of La Rastra and inside 5 km of the Firm’s San Marcial Silver Challenge, within the Rosario Mining District. The Challenge is a past-producing asset the place just one mine, the Plomosas lead-zinc(-silver-gold) underground mine, operated a 600 tpd crush-mill-flotation circuit from 1986 to 2001, producing roughly 8 M ounces of silver, 73 M kilos of lead and 28 M kilos of zinc.
The March 2020 acquisition of the Plomosas Silver Challenge included 563 historic and up to date drill holes from each floor and underground areas. These drill holes symbolize an in depth database permitting the Firm to advance in the direction of useful resource estimation and potential venture improvement within the close to future.
The Firm is finishing a drilling program with floor holes targeted on increasing identified mineralization alongside strike in two areas, the Plomosas Mine Space and the San Juan Space. Underground drilling included in this system is concentrating on the extension of latest Au-rich discoveries on the lowest stage (775 m RL, or ~250 m under floor) of the Plomosas Mine Space and 6 low sulphidation epithermal veins on the San Juan Space. Each areas are at present the topic of NI 43-101 useful resource estimations.
The belongings embody all amenities and infrastructure together with entry roads, floor rights settlement, water use allow, 8,000 m of underground workings, water entry, 60 km – 33 KV energy line, places of work, retailers, 120-person camp, infirmary, warehouses and assay lab representing roughly US$30 M of earlier capital investments. The earlier homeowners invested roughly US$18 M in exploration, together with in depth geophysics and geochemistry packages.
The silver-gold mineralization on this Challenge shows the alteration, textures, mineralogy and deposit geometry traits of a low sulphidation epithermal silver-gold-base metallic mineralized vein/breccia system. Earlier exploration was targeted on polymetallic (Pb-Zn+/-Ag-Au) shallow mineralization, hosted in NW-SE constructions within the neighborhood of the Plomosas Mine. The E-W portion of the mineralization and extensions of the principle N-S Plomosas Fault stay under-explored.
Along with the useful resource potential at Plomosas, a overview of the present drill gap database, geophysical surveys and geochemical knowledge masking many of the concession, has outlined 16 new exploration targets of which 11 have excessive precedence for future exploration packages.
San Marcial Challenge
San Marcial is a near-surface, high-grade silver-lead-zinc open pit-amenable venture. The Firm filed a Nationwide Instrument 43-101 (“NI 43-101”) report entitled “San Marcial Challenge Useful resource Estimation and Technical Report, Sinaloa, Mexico” having an efficient date of March 18, 2019 and an amended date of June 10, 2020 (the “Report”), which accommodates a 36 Moz AgEq (Indicated) and 11 Moz AgEq (Inferred) useful resource estimate. The Report was ready by Todd McCracken and Marcelo Filipov of WSP Canada Inc. and is accessible on SEDAR. The corporate lately accomplished over 320 m of underground improvement within the San Marcial Useful resource Space, from which underground drilling is deliberate to increase the high-grade parts of the useful resource down-dip. The Firm lately found extra mineralization within the footwall, outdoors of the present useful resource, and also will be drilling this space. GR Silver Mining is the primary firm to conduct exploration at San Marcial in over 10 years.
Latest exploration has recognized silver and gold mineralization in areas beforehand outlined as non-mineralized, discovering proof of pervasively altered rocks with intense silicification, veining and related large, silver and gold mineralized zones on the footwall of the NI 43-101 useful resource space.
La Trinidad Challenge
The La Trinidad Challenge was acquired in March 2021. Whereas La Trinidad has been the main target of artisanal mining exercise over many a long time, business operations started late within the twentieth century. Anaconda Minerals Corp. was first to drill the venture within the mid-late Eighties. After initially taking on an possibility on the Challenge in 1993, Eldorado Gold Corp. then commenced an open pit gold mine at La Trinidad in 1995, generally known as the Taunus Pit, with ore being processed through a heap leach operation. The mine operated till 1998, producing roughly 52,000 oz of gold2.
Exploration undertaken by Oro Gold from 2006 recognized extra assets under the Taunus Pit and operations recommenced late in 2014. Gold output from the heap leach pads continued till late 2019 for a complete cumulative manufacturing by Oro Gold of 112,000 oz gold3,4. Along with La Trinidad, the portfolio acquired by GR Silver Mining consists of an in depth regional database of geological, geochemical and geophysical data ensuing from historic exploration expenditure by Oro Gold of greater than CDN$18.6 M since 2006.
Cimarron is one other superior stage venture that was acquired together with the La Trinidad Challenge in March 2021 and is situated 40 km to the NW of La Trinidad. Numerous targets have been recognized at Cimarron together with Calerita, El Prado, Huanacaxtle, Betty and Veteranos, nevertheless Calerita is the one goal to have been drilled so far. The close to floor historic Inferred Useful resource on the Calerita prospect accommodates 3.7 Mt at 0.65 g/t Au for roughly 77,000 oz of gold5, which is taken into account to be open alongside strike and down dip.
Whereas the 2011 useful resource is taken into account by GR Silver Mining to be a historic useful resource, the Firm considers the useful resource estimate as being related and dependable, contemplating an absence of great extra exploration work since its launch. A key parameter within the historic useful resource is the utilization of a US$1,200/oz gold worth in comparison with a a lot increased present spot gold worth. A Certified Particular person (QP) can be required to overview the historic useful resource report and make suggestions so as to confirm and improve it to a present useful resource. A QP has not performed ample work to categorise the historic estimate as present mineral assets. The Firm is treating the 2011 useful resource estimate as a historic estimate. The corporate plans to re-assess the work accomplished by earlier homeowners and outline the feasibility of extra drilling, aiming at figuring out extra near-surface mineralization.
The Plomosas, San Marcial and La Trinidad Initiatives collectively symbolize a geological setting resembling the multi-million-ounce San Dimas Mining District which has traditionally produced greater than 600 Moz Ag and 11 Moz Au over a interval of greater than 100 years.
GR Silver Mining’s different tasks are located in areas engaging for future discoveries and improvement in the identical neighborhood of Plomosas, La Trinidad and San Marcial within the Rosario Mining District.
