During Q1 2022, we acquired an earn-in option from Mexplort, where we may acquire a 50% interest in the Jaguelito project, located in the Province of San Juan, Argentina, which is a High Sulfidation deposit that has had 30,000 meters drilled.

The preliminary structural mapping highlighted the presence of first order structures generating a triangular zone, defined by the lift of basement of the Paleozoic Choiyoi Group in both sides and protecting the units of the Vacas Heladas Formation in the central zone affected by high sulfidation alteration and mineralisation assigned to Miocene age.

In the Jaguelito Norte area, in progress detailed mapping preliminarily confirmed phreatomagmatic activity controlled by reverse fault movement, generating a contact between the Paleozoic basement and the Miocene flat intrusive complex (Infiernillo Unit - 13,65 Ma).

Much of the steam-heated alteration is preserved in Jaguelito Norte, and most of the vuggy silica and mineralisation is related to phreatomagmatic products suggesting similarities with observations in Veladero and Alturas, both which are very close to the project.

Sierra Blanca-Pingüino

During Q1 2022, the main exploration activities focused on to the southwestern area of the property following Aster anomalies and geological indicators of potential mineralisation in the Vetarron area.

Preliminary studies confirm the presence of a dome-diatreme system controlling a large zone of argillic alteration of the same age and characteristics of the Cerro Vanguardia and Cerro Negro endowment. Detailed mapping identified vuggy silica and quartz-alunite alterations confirmed by petrography studies, which precede a low sulfidation type alteration.
