Apache Project Map

Property Highlights:

  • The El Apache property, located in Sonora, Mexico, covers 11,417 hectares in two concession known as El Apache and Tlahuac staked by the Company in 2011. 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. The property is surrounded by gold mines, including the largest gold operation in Mexico Penmont's (Fresnillo-Newmont joint-venture) Herradura complex that includes the Herradura, Soledad-Dipolos and Nochebuena mines.
  • Work to date includes partial 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.
