Targeting High Grade Gold and Silver Assets in Mexico
This Brigadier Gold profile is part of a paid investor campaign.
Brigadier Gold Limited (TSXV:BRG) is an exploration and development company targeting high grade gold and silver assets in Mexico. The company’s flagship 3,954-hectare Picachos gold project is located in Sinaloa State, Mexico and is proximal to bonanza-grade silver and gold discoveries to the north and south. It is situated above one of the largest high-amplitude contiguous anomalies for gold and base metals in the area. The property is accessible from Mazatlan via a state highway and includes dirt roads into the property.
In June 2020 Brigadier Gold announced it had optioned 100 percent of the Picachos gold-silver property from Minera Camargo. A total of US$4.2 million was raised to fund drilling, exploration and corporate expenses. The property overlaps two regional-scale precious metals vein systems and one large copper porphyry prospect, with historical production originating from the veins found on the property. Under the terms of the acquisition agreement, Brigadier Gold must provide staged considerations to Minera Camargo over a five year period, including cash payments totaling US$275,000, 4,000,000 common shares and exploration expenditures of US$3.85 million.
Picachos is home to the historic San Agustin and La Gloria mines, which have each seen historical exploration. Assays from test work at San Agustin averaged 15.8 g/t gold and 63 g/t gold across a width of 2.5 meters, revealing veins that are open at depth. Rock samples taken at the La Gloria mine returned 21.1 g/t gold and 6.0 g/t gold across 0.8 meters. Moving forward, Brigadier Gold intends to continue to develop the Picachos property, working towards a 43-101 compliant resource estimate.

Brigadier Gold’s Picachos Project
Brigadier Gold’s Picachos gold project is located in southern Sinaloa State, Mexico encompassing 3,954.1 hectares. The project is situated above one of the largest high-amplitude contiguous anomalies for gold and base metals in the western Sierra Madre. Picachos is accessible via a paved road between the historic mining town of El Rosario and the village of Cacalotan. Country roads then lead to Picachos and through the property to existing mine workings.
Brigadier Gold optioned the Picachos gold project, including the past-producing San Agustin mine, in July 2020. The San Agustin mine at Picachos is home to approximately 665 meters of historical underground development, including sampling conducted in 1997. Underground sampling conducted by Thunderbird Projects implied an average grade of 81.22 g/t gold and 73.36 g/t gold across 1.2 meters. A later operator, MCA, produced approximately 1850 tonnes of muck from a 45-meter deep shaft that returned values of 185 g/t gold at the bottom of the shaft. Fine-fraction, active channel stream sediments found on the property have returned values up to 6841 ppb gold.
Vane Minerals later continued exploration at the San Agustin mine in 2014, test-mining three mine rounds from the south face of the mine. Assays from this test work averaged 15.8 g/t gold and 63 g/t gold across a width of 2.5 meters. Veins at the mine are open at depth and have yet to be drill tested.
The La Gloria mine at Picachos is a historic gold mine that was developed on a northwest-trending vein exposed on the property. Rock samples taken at the La Gloria mine returned 21.1 g/t gold and 6.0 g/t gold across 0.8 meters. Gold mineralization at La Gloria appears to occur in a structural zone characterized by 10 to 20 percent red chalcedonic quartz hematite veinlets that contain minor bright green zinc-copper oxides and hematite stain.
