About the Cerro Amarillo Gold Project

Cerro Amarillo is a gold-rich porphyry system located on the southern extension of the highly productive Late Miocene -- Pliocene magmatic arc that hosts the EL Teniente and Los Bronces porphyry giants in Chile. The property contains a large 2km x 3km alteration zone that is developed over a poorly-outcropping, strongly-leached Cu-Mo-Au porphyry system with associated skarn mineralization. The porphyry system comprises a potassic core, an intermediate phyllic zone, and an outer propylitic zone. Previous sampling from the core has indicated values ranging up to 1.47% copper, 0.98g/t gold, and 550ppm Mo. Hydrothermal breccias are also present, and sampling of these returned up to 0.5g/t gold, with one isolated outcrop some 600m southeast of the core returning between 1-57g/t gold. In addition, the 14,222-hectare property has one other partially explored alteration zone as well as four unexplored color anomalies.
