About the Sonora Portfolio

Pilar Property

The Pilar Gold-Silver property is interpreted as a structurally controlled low-sulphidation epithermal project hosted in andesite rocks. Three zones of mineralization have been identified in the north-west part of the property from historic surface work and drilling and are referred to as the Main Zone, North Hill and 4-Trench. Structural features and zones of mineralization within the structures follow an overall NW-SE trend of mineralization. Over 22,700 m of drilling have been completed to date. Significant results are highlighted below:

  • 2021 Phase II RC Drilling Highlights include (all lengths are drilled thicknesses): 

    • 39.7m @ 0.96 g/t Au, including 1.5m @ 14. g/t Au; 

    • 47.7m @ 0.70 g/t Au including 3m @ 5.6 g/t Au and 22 g/t Ag; 

    • 29m @ 0.71g/t Au;
