The Hermanas project consists of 83 lode claims on Federal land administered by the Bureau of Land Management. The claims are located approximately 40km east of Southern Silver’s Oro Porphyry Copper/skarn/CRD project and cover an area of epithermal quartz veining approximately 4km by 3km.
The vendors have collected 151 surface samples, with seven samples containing +4ppm Au (maximum 30.1ppm Au) and 22 samples containing +30ppm Ag (maximum 4,790ppm Ag). Verification sampling by the company identified anomalous gold and silver in seven of nine samples collected including: a sample from a small historic mine dump that assayed 6.7ppm Au & 150ppm Ag and a sample of outcropping banded quartz + carbonate vein that assayed 4.6ppm Au & 56ppm Ag.
Detailed geologic mapping and additional sampling are underway and, to date, only shallow historic drill holes have been found along the southern end of the vein zone, well away from the best vein zones identified by current sampling. Further exploration work is planned in 2022.
