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 58% interest in the San Anton Property (Goldcorp 42%), 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 more than 20 targets and has led to the delineation of a NI 43-101 Mineral Resource of +10 million ounces gold equivalent. The deposit remains open in several directions. A US $10M program is underway to complete initial engineering and metallurgical studies, to continue expanding the Cerro del Gallo resource, and to drill nearby targets.
