N. Eric Fier , CPG, P.Eng, President & CEO stated, "Las Chispas is a very exciting brownfields exploration story. The project area consists of a district size target with multiple historic surface and underground mines that reportedly produced an estimated 100 million ounces of silver and 200 thousand ounces of gold between 1880 and 1930. Reported average production grades from limited public information were approximately 15 grams per tonne (gpt) gold and 1,700 grams per tonne (gpt) silver over widths of 1 to 5 metres. Our initial underground channel sampling of exposed mineralization has shown grades up to 15.1 gpt Au and 1,340 gpt Ag over 1.3 metres. To our knowledge, all mineralized zones in the district, which include multiple epithermal veins, have not been previously drilled. The underground rehabilitation program will help further assess the potential for near surface deposits and deeper extensions of mineralization. A majority of the underground workings have been inaccessible for over 80 years, and historic records suggest several previously developed areas were not mined due to closure around 1930. The Company is well financed with over $6.5 million and the 2016 exploration expenditures are expected to be in the range of $1 to $1.2 million ."
Brexit has happened. Those who are not happy with this reality are making their voices heard; yet, so too are those who are overjoyed to have their liberty and freedom back in their own hands. This divide is glaringly obvious and has been the highlight of the news reel since last week's vote. There has been a flood of articles relating to the matter, and for good reason. This is a historic event and a move that slaps the global elites squarely in the face, something that rarely happens throughout our history.
