    • MDPC-150: 10.5m @ 805g/t Ag from 12m; including 6m @ 1,284g/t Ag
    • MDPC-151: 24.0m @ 474g/t Ag from 36m; including 15m @ 677g/t Ag

Azure’s previous exploration on Alacrán discovered the Mesa de Plata silver deposit (refer Table 3 for Mineral Resource) and the adjacent Loma Bonita gold-silver deposit (refer Table 4 for Mineral Resource) (see Figures 1 & 2). These two deposits contain total mineral resources of:

Mesa de Plata (ASX: 1 December 2016):

27.4Moz silver in 10.5Mt @ 82g/t Ag

  • 150,000oz gold & 4.8Moz silver in 5.4Mt @ 0.9g/t Au & 28g/t Ag


The Reverse Circulation (RC) drilling program is being undertaken at the Loma Bonita gold-silver deposit for resource infill and extension, at Mesa de Plata to collect additional samples for advanced metallurgical testwork, and at several greenfields exploration targets.
