El Picacho Gold Project

El Picacho Gold Project

The El Picacho Gold-Silver property is interpreted as a orogenic gold system within the regional Caborca Orogenic Gold Belt known for producing gold mines that include La Herradura and San Francisco. The project is 140 kilometers north of Hermosillo and totals 2,414 hectares. Five primary zones of mineralization have been identified across the property totalling over six kilometers of prospective trends. Surface sampling has identified high-grade gold and silver values.
