Almaden Minerals is an exploration company generating new gold silver and copper prospects in North America. For nearly 20 years, Almaden has built an unrivalled geological database of Eastern Mexico using historical prospects, Aster satellite imagery, geological and geophysical data, and helicopter-supported prospecting and fieldwork. The company has identified and evaluated thousands of targets from the USA border to Guatemala, and has staked over 40 new properties.
The Ixtaca Zone was discovered by Almaden’s grassroots exploration program, and in 2010 Almaden announced the results from the first hole ever drilled in the Ixtaca Zone, discovery hole TU10-01 averaged 1.01 g/t gold and 48 g/t silver over 302 meters from the base of the overburden to the end of the hole. The 2012 drill program is currently underway with four drills, and over 100 holes have been drilled. All results are listed on our web site www.almadenminerals.com/projects/ixtaca/ixtaca-drill-program.html.
Almaden’s other discoveries in Eastern Mexico include the Caballo Blanco Gold Deposit which was sold to GoldgroupMining Inc. for shares, cash, and 1.5%NSR. and the El Cobre Gold-Copper Project. The El Cobre is 100% owned by Almaden and has potential for a similar gold-copper mineralization as the Maricunga Belt in Chile.
