The El Apache property, located in Sonora, Mexico, covers 6,538 hectares in one concession known as El Apache. The property is in a prime location, 10 km east of Mexico's largest gold mine, La Herradura complex, and 10 km south of La Choya mine.
El Apache is largely covered by sand and gravel in the Sonoran Desert and sits in the center of a highly prospective area within the prolific Sonora-Mojave megashear gold belt. A small outcrop of a biotite gneiss surrounded by eolic sands sits in the middle of large northwest-oriented magnetic low that suggest the presence of structures favorable to gold mineralization in Sonora.
Work to date includes surface reconnaissance, interpretation of the government's magnetic data and limited surface sampling in two small outcropping hills.
Future work will entail ZTEM, detailed magnetometry, bleg sampling, and enzyme leach-type geochemical surveys to identify drill targets.
