About the Project

The El Centenario project is situated 15km southwest of the La Cienega

mine (owned by Fresnillo PLC) a structurally controlled

gold-silver-lead-zinc mineral deposit that has been in production

since early?1999. To date, the La Cienega mine has produced more than

2M oz of gold and 50M oz of silver. Additionally, the world-class

Metates deposit (27M oz gold equivalent owned by Chesapeake Gold

Corporation (TSX-V: CKG) is located 10 km south-southeast of the El

colonial times. The concession block contains dozens of mineral

prospects and an abundance of small-scale mine workings. The style of

mineralization varies from epithermal, low sulfidation,

fracture-filling vein-stock-work breccia systems to skarn and

sediment-hosted enriched disseminated zones.
