Riverside Resources won the right to stake the Ariel project through the claims lottery process and subsequently staked and acquired the project in northern Sonora, Mexico.
The Ariel Project is strategically located 30 km ESE of the world-class La Caridad Cu-Mo porphyry mine (1,800 Mt @ 0.45% Cu, 0.02% Mo), and 24 km SE of the Los Alisos Cu porphyry prospect. To the best of RRI’s knowledge, the area has not been drill tested previously and represents a new grass-roots target.
The Ariel property was staked by Riverside in late 2015 and developed out of a strong reconnaissance prospecting program in the area. Access to the Property is good with 30 km on dirt roads from paved highways where power grid and other infrastructure are in place servicing the nearby La Caridad mine.
