The first of 9 drill holes from a proposed 3,000 metre drill program has been started at the historic Santa Rosa Silver-Gold mine near the southwest end of the San Javier Mineralized Corridor (SJMC). The first two holes are planned to test the depth extension of the Santa Rosa structure not more than 50 m below the lowermost workings of the past producing Santa Rosa Silver-Gold mine, and to test the underlying Lydia and Noria veins and intervening ground for bulk tonnage style mineralization. These first holes are planned for a minimum drilled depth of 400 m.
Santa Rosa, along with all other workings and showings along the nearly 4 km strike length of the SJMC, is hosted in the late Triassic age Barrancas Group, comprised predominantly of sandstone and lesser shale and siltstone. Brecciated hanging wall rocks were observed underground at the Santa Rosa mine, and potentially larger breccia bodies exist at the Carranza and Cerro Colorado zones, both located near the confluence of the SJMC with older faults which crosscut the SJMC. A road is being constructed to access the Carranza breccia zone, followed by rehabilitation of road access to Cerro Colorado.
