The Socorro property is a regional gold exploration play with dozens of pits and placer deposits with excellent potential to host both bulk open-pit, heap-leachable deposits as well as high-grade gold in high-angle structures.
The southern part of the concession covers the northern extension of Alamo's El Chanate mine, while the central and northern portion cover a regional structure over 10 km long that hosts mesothermal veins with gold values up to 20 g/t.
Work to date on the property includes interpretation of ASTER images, surface reconnaissance and detailed geological mapping. Extensive rock chip sampling was also conducted, followed up by an 8,000-sample soil geochemical survey in selected covered areas.
Further work is warranted to investigate geochemical anomalies as well as to systematically sample vein outcrops and hydrothermally altered areas.
The property consists of three claims known as El Socorro Frac. 1, El Socorro Frac. 2, and Tizoc R1 covering 35,654 hectares staked in 2011.
