Exploration History & Results
This project is strategically located in the Laramide copper belt of northern Mexico and is currently at an early stage of exploration. Preliminary geologic mapping, alteration analysis and sampling has so far been conducted on the project to help focus targeting for the upcoming exploration program.
In April 2018 a reconnaissance exploration program performed by Riverside outlined alteration zones potentially related to porphyry copper mineral systems with drill target areas defined. Some 293 rock samples were collected and analyzed for trace metal contents using a portable X-ray fluorescence instrument as well as a mineral analyzer that employs near infra-red spectrometry to identify minerals typically formed by hydrothermal processes. An additional 120 samples were analyzed using only the spectral analyzer (see press release April 5, 2018).
