Pilar Gold Project

The Pilar Gold Project

The Pilar Gold-Silver property is interpreted as a structurally controlled low-sulphidation epithermal project hosted in andesite rocks. Three zones of mineralization have been identified in the north-west part of the property from historic surface work and drilling and are referred to as the Main Zone, North Hill and 4-Trench. Structural features and zones of mineralization within the structures follow an overall NW-SE trend of mineralization. Over 22,700 m of drilling have been completed to date.

Key Points:

  • The Pilar Gold Property is in the Sonora Gold District hosted precious metal deposits and porphyry copper deposits in the Sierra Madre Occidental geological province.
  • The Property has a Guadalupana Concession and an adjacent La Sorora Concession with significant soil, drilling and geophysical mineralization features.
  • The Sonora Gold District has the largest share (36.8%) of annual gold production in Mexico, and the Sonora District of Mexico is #1 for annual world silver production.
  • Sonora mining operations have excellent infrastructure, water and power, access roads, well-trained labor force and support vendors with quick turn-around results.
  • Extensive trenching, soil sampling, drilling and geophysics completed with drilling only to 125 M in depth.
  • Low Sulfidation, Epithermal, Volcanic host, Fractured, Oxidized, Altered. At and near surface, to open at depth epithermal Au-Ag deposit.

Significant Results:

  • 2021 Phase II RC Drilling Highlights include (all lengths are drilled thicknesses):
  • 39.7m @ 0.96 g/t Au, including 1.5m @ 14. g/t Au  
  • 47.7m @ 0.75 g/t Au including 3m @ 5.6 g/t Au and 22 g/t Ag 
  • 29m @ 0.71g/t Au 
  • 35.1m @ 0.66 g/t Au 
  • 2020 Phase I RC Drilling Highlights include (all lengths are drilled thicknesses):
  • 94.6m @ 1.6 g/t Au, including 9.2m @ 10.8 g/t Au and 38 g/t Ag; 
  • 41.2m @ 1.1 g/t Au, including 3.1m @ 6.0g/t Au and 12 g/t Ag ; 
  • 24.4m @ 2.5 g/t Au and 73 g/t Ag, including 1.5m @ 33.4 g/t Au and 1,090 g/t Ag 
  • 17,700m of Historic Core & RC drilling. Highlights include: 
  • 61.0m @ 0.8 g/t Au 
  • 16.5m @ 53.5g/t Au and 53 g/t Ag  
  • 13.0m @ 9.6 g/t Au  
  • 9.0m @ 10.2 g/t Au and 46 g/t Ag  Soil and Rock sampling results from undrilled areas indicate mineralization extends towards the southeast from the Main Zone and 4-Trench Zone. Recent Surface exploration has defined three new target areas: Triple Vein Zone, SE Vein Zone and 4 Trench Extension.
