La Minerva


The La Minerva Property consists of numerous concessions, located on the northwest flank of Sierra Minerva, an island of bedrock surrounded by broad alluvial plains. A dioritic intrusion forms the central core of the range, and is flanked by limestone and interbedded limestone and shale. In the western part of the Property, several old prospect pits, trenches and shallow shafts occur in limestone along intrusive contacts and brittle faults. Silver, lead and zinc oxides are present over a 1 km2 area. Another zone of mineralization is present in the eastern part of the Property, where several old prospect pits and bulldozer trenches tested the contact of diorite with marble. Galena-cemented breccias and veinlets are present in these areas, both in marble and diorite. Moderate grade silver is present in association with galena. Both areas afford excellent road access. Following closing the Company intends to undertake detailed mapping and sampling of the two areas of silver-lead-zinc mineralization identified in previous prospecting efforts. A ground magnetic survey of the claims will also be undertaken to determine the extent of intrusive rocks and magnetite-bearing skarn mineralization.
