Patito Project, Mexico

The Patito I and II claims are located approximately 1.5km south west, and 3.0km due south of the El Pinguico mine project. The properties are sparsely explored and never drilled, yet are well located within the region to potentially host precious metal deposits.

PATITO I AND II CLAIMS

The Patito I and II claims are located  approximately 1.5km south west, and 3.0km due south of the El Pinguico mine project. The properties are sparsely explored and never drilled, yet are well located within the region to potentially host precious metal deposits.

The geology of the Patito I and II claims consist of the same formations at El Pinguico: Bufa Rhyolite tuff overlain by Calderones Formation, which in turn is overlain by the rhyolite Chichindaro Formation consisting of massive bedded, crystal, vitric, welded ash, containing irregular lenses of white and pink flow breccia, poorly sorted. Over the Chichindaro rhyolite we can find the same basaltic-andesitic rock but in larger areas than in the north. In the western part of each of these claims, we find colluvium called Gravas El Capulin, which consists of unstratified and unconsolidated gravels and sands.

01EXPLORATION WORK IN PATITO I CLAIM

The Patito I claim has central coordinates 268132 east and 2318381 north (WGS84 datum) and elevations from 1940m to 2300m above sea level, and is approximately 1.5 kilometres south of the El Pinguico claims.

Geological, structural, and alteration mapping has been done on a scale of 1:5000 and was complemented with rock samples. In total, 17 samples were taken on the claim and the surrounding areas.

Old workings discovered on the claim include one tin mine and a few old, small, non-metallic mines (green andesitic rock). The tin is observed as thin veins of 10-15 centimetres - striking in all directions.

Samples taken from Patito I have low silver and gold values, but in analyzing the available geophysical images of the property, we can see some compelling magnetic anomalies at depth in the southeast corner of the claim allowing for the possibility of further and more detailed exploration.

 
 

02EXPLORATION WORK IN PATITO II CLAIM

As with Patito I, geological, structural and alteration mapping was completed on a scale of 1:5000 and was complemented with rock samples. In total 9 samples were taken from the claim and in the surrounding area. Only one old working - of a stope within sulphides - was identified along with two tin mines.

The samples taken from Patito II have low silver and gold values, however some samples indicate a subtle gold anomaly in the northeast corner where the old working (stope) is found. Analyzing the geophysical images, we can also see some magnetic anomalies at depth in the north, east and west of the claim block.
