The holes drilled at Valentina, Julieta, Awada and Maya did not intercept significant mineralisation. However, the composition and textures of the intercepted veins suggest potential at depth. A second drill phase is under review and is expected to be completed during Q4 2021.

Pinguino - Sierra Blanca District Exploration

Preliminary targeting of the district, based on geological mapping, Aster interpretation, and geophysics resulted in a new target structurally protected. The follow-up activities on the new target confirmed favorable alteration related to Dome-Breccia complex. Our planned Q4 2021 activities are focused on relogging and reinterpretation of historical data.

Quality Assurance

Industry standard practices were used for sampling of diamond drilling. Drilling Samples were sent to the Activation Geological Services (AGS) chemical laboratory, located in the city of Coquimbo, Chile, where the samples were mechanically prepared (crushed and pulverized according to standard protocol). Chemical gold analyzes were performed using Au50 FA-AAS procedures (50 gram weight used for assays). Fusion with final determination performed by Atomic Absorption; The results obtained equal to or greater than 5gr / ton., were analyzed by Au30GRAV, fusion with final gravimetric determination. For the base metal assays, acid digestion was performed with final determination by ICPMS (Ultra-trace multi-element package). Silver results equal to or greater than 100gr / ton., were analyzed by Ag30GRAV, fusion with final gravimetric determination. AGS has NCh 17025-2005 accreditation for the aforementioned tests and its central laboratory is located at Avenida La Cantera 2270, Coquimbo, Chile.
