About San Anton Resource Corporation

San Anton Resource Corporation is an exploration and development company that is listed on the Toronto Stock Exchange and is totally focused on the mining friendly jurisdiction of Mexico. The Company's principal asset is a 64% interest in the San Anton Property (Goldcorp 36%), which hosts the near-surface Cerro del Gallo gold-silver-copper deposit. The Property is located in a historic gold-silver mining district and has only recently been subjected to modern exploration techniques. This work quickly identified several targets and has led to the delineation of a NI 43-101 Measured & Indicated Mineral Resource of 461 million tonnes grading 0.27g/t gold (3.9Moz), 11g/t silver (163Moz) and 0.11% copper (1.09Blb) and an Inferred Mineral Resource of 166 million tonnes grading 0.11g/t gold (0.6Moz), 7 g/t silver (39Moz) and 0.10% copper (0.36Blb). Within the overall deposit, there is a 'gold domain zone' containing Measured & Indicated Mineral Resource of 209 million tonnes grading 0.48g/t gold (3.2Moz) and 11g/t silver (71Moz) and within this zone, there is a relatively higher grade gold resource defined at surface. The deposit remains open in several directions.
