Discussion on Use of Proceeds
Proceeds from the Offering will be used to advance the Pilar Gold-Silver Project in Sonora, Mexico. A trenching program was completed earlier in December to evaluate key target areas with channel sampling followed by a series of column leach studies on representative sites across the Main Zone. Samples for the trench program have been delivered to a certified laboratory for analysis. Results of channel samples are expected in mid-January and will used to select the representative mineral sample for the programmed column tests. In addition, drilling is planned with between 5,000 to 8,000 meters estimated between now and July of 2022. Drilling will focus on continued step-out drilling along the Main Zone and new 4-Trench Trend, following up on Phase II step-outs highlighted by JES-21-50 which intersected 39.7m at 0.96 g/t Au including 1.5m at 14.6 g/t Au. Exploration drilling will continue to evaluate target areas along the Triple Vein Zone. Surface exploration work will continue with trenching and sampling along the southeastern extension of the Main Zone.
In coordination with exploration at Pilar, an exploration program of surface mapping and sampling will be conducted at the El Picacho Gold-Silver Project in Sonora, Mexico. The program aims to advance key target areas towards trenching and ultimately drill targeting.
“With a first phase of trenching complete and drilling set to begin, we remain focused on the advancement of Pilar and are excited to announce the recent financing will provide the capital to see us through to our next phase of exploration.”, commented VP Exploration, Brodie Sutherland.
About the Pilar Property
The Pilar Gold-Silver property is interpreted as a structurally controlled low-sulphidation epithermal project hosted in andesite rocks. Three zones of mineralization have been identified in the north-west part of the property from historic surface work and drilling and are referred to as the Main Zone, North Hill and 4-Trench. Structural features and zones of mineralization within the structures follow an overall NW-SE trend of mineralization. Over 22,700 m of drilling have been completed to date. Significant results are highlighted below:
