This region of Mexico is referred to as the Mesa Central Block and is a well-known mining district, historically exploited for Ag-Pb-Zn deposits associated with Tertiary Volcanism and Epithermal veins or replacement deposits along porous horizons. The discovery of Penasquito, approximately 120 km to the east of the Cuencame Property, along with other recent discoveries on this belt, has shown the potential for bulk tonnage deposits that can host significant gold mineralization. Approximately 25 km west of the Cuencame Property, is the Velardena Properties which have disclosed over 30 million tonnes of silver, gold, lead and zinc mineralization.
