Ysabela is located just past the town of Rio Blanco. Accessibility to the property from Rio Banco is through dirt road with direct access to property.
Immediately adjacent to the PP is an active Hg mine. Locals are tunneling a few hundred meters deep to follow the high-grade Hg source rock.
Mining Hg rocks is quite common in the area, Peter Swiridiuk, VanGold Geophysicist confirmed, Hg is a precursor to Ag and Au. Hg if softer therefore traveling farther in the veins. The host Ag and Au will be found at lower depths.
Overall, the property has a small number of old mine workings and adits that were focused along exposed silver host rock, but nothing of significant size demonstrating a large ore deposit at this time.
