Advance Gold Corp. ("Advance" or "the Company") is pleased to announce the addition of the Venaditas project a new 100% owned property, well located adjoining the claims for Teck's San Nicholas base metals mine in Ojocaliente, Mexico. This is the second project for the company in the area, it is approximately 11km to the west of its Tabasquena silver mine where, as previously announced, drilling is underway.
Highlights of Venaditas Project
- The Venaditas project is 2365 hectares
- The Venaditas project has potential for VMS exploration
- Adjoins Teck's San Nicholas Mine, a VMS deposit
- This is a prolific region of Mexico, with several large mines within 25 mile radius
- Nearby mines are hosted in same Tertiary volcanics as Venaditas
- There exists a geophysical anomaly below a structural intersection at Venaditas
Allan Barry Laboucan, President and CEO of Advance Gold Corp. commented: "This is our second project near Ojocaliente. Venaditas is approximately 11km to the west of our Tabasquena silver mine. It is also a 'shadows of a headframe project' as it is adjacent to Teck's San Nicholas. Also, in the immediate area is Milagros and El Coronel mines, all of the mines in the area are hosted in the Tertiary andesites. What stands out to me about Venaditas, is twofold, there are two geological structures that come together at Venaditas, below this structural intersection is a large geophysical anomaly. This project is close to being drill ready and we should have updates shortly on drilling this high quality exploration project."
