Llano del Nogal

  • Introduction

    Target: Cu±Mo±Au porphyry, Au-Ag epithermal vein
    Location: Sonora, Mexico
    Size: 104 km2
    Status: Available for Option
    Stage: Geophysical Survey, Geological Mapping and Prospecting for Drilling

    Overview

    104 square kilometre of mineral tenure, held 100% by Evrim Resources Corp. Subject to a 1% NSR on base metals and a 1.5% NSR on precious metals payable to Altius Minerals. Road accessible, good relationship with local community and landowners.

    • Prime location: One of the few hydrothermal systems in the Cananea – La Caridad Porphyry Copper Belt that remains untested by drilling. No detailed systematic exploration has been carried out to date – significant upside is available.
    • Prospective geologic setting for porphyry deposits; windows of Cretaceous volcanic rocks cut by Laramide-aged intrusions, favourable erosional level for systems in pre-mineral rocks and beneath post-mineral cover. Porphyry-style alteration, hydrothermal breccias and copper mineralization have been mapped.
    • Geologic setting is also permissive for epithermal deposits; a series of high-level epithermal style vein systems with substantial strike lengths have been delineated and have returned significant gold and silver values with anomalous pathfinder and base metal values.
    • A cost effective turnkey work program of mapping, geochemistry and geophysics leading to drilling is planned out for interested parties.

  • An extensive, strong alteration system exposed over some 25 square kilometres indicates a large hydrothermal system.

    • Airborne magnetics show potentially favourable porphyry targets.
    • Three NE-striking epithermal vein systems returned values including 253 g/t silver and 0.98 g/t gold with anomalous epithermal pathfinders, while samples from old workings returned 10.9 g/t Au, >1% Cu, >5% Pb and 3.4% Zn. These mineralized structures with low sulfidation characteristics may be related to a buried porphyry system.
    • Evrim mapping has identified Laramide intrusions and quartz-sericite-altered hydrothermal breccias associated with copper mineralization in host andesites building strong geological field evidence for a porphyry copper system.
    • The project has ample space for discovery. Historical prospecting pits and adits are present on the property and the only known work on the property comprises limited detailed rock sampling and regional-scale reconnaissance stream sediment sampling.
