A geophysical program was performed on Cerro Delta in 2008 which outlined several large IP anomalies that are associated with both the Cerro Porfiro (high chargeability) and Cerro Delta (high resistivity) areas, another characteristic in common with the known deposits along the Maricunga belt. At Cerro Delta these IP chargeability anomalies extend to 1,000 m by 600 m in area. Coincident with the IP anomalies are two areas of gold-in-soil anomalies with anomalous values from 25 to over 100 ppb gold that form several contiguous zones measuring up to 200 m by 800 m in area. Similar gold in soil anomalies are noted over the Refugio, Caspiche and Cerro Casale deposits. For example, the gold in soil and rock chip anomalous gold zone originally mapped by Anglo American at Capiche measured 650 by 300 meters.
The Cerro Delta project is drill ready and the company intends to begin drilling in the fourth quarter of 2011.
"The acquisition of the Cerro Delta project is a watershed event for the company" noted President Miguel De Nanno. "It is a drill ready, very high impact exploration project which in addition to containing a large anomalous gold zone has many other compelling similarities to large deposits in the area. I would like to emphasize just how aggressively we intend to pursue this project and others in the region. I would also like to welcome to the board Mr. Le Barber. His expertise in international finance and gold markets makes him a very valuable member of our board and I look forward to working with him in the future."
