Four trenches and one hand-dug pit have been excavated on the Majagual Hill target on the site of the best gold and copper values in soils. The pit averaged 0.3 g/t Au over 15 m and a maximum value of 1.7 g/t over a 1 m interval. On the Cumanies-Granadillo target, three trenches were excavated with anomalous Cu values.
Geologic mapping and PIMA (portable infrared electromagnetic spectrometer) and XRD (X-ray diffraction) alteration mineral mapping define a zoning of alteration patterns from propylitic to phyllic and advanced argillic - potassic alterations over Majagual Hill. Textural breccias mapped in outcrop show remarkable similarity to breccias in high sulphidation epithermal systems. Two regional structural orientations have been mapped: 1) A NW-SE regional fault system parallel to the regional corridor generated during the formation of the island arc, and 2) A set of NE-SW faults (transfer structures). These second structures are syngenetic with N-S lineaments. The conceptual model of these structures is orthogonal convergence. Key elements (Au-Ag-As-Hg-Sb-B-Bi-Mo) are grouped along regional orthogonal structures. The association of these elements with an advance argillic alteration zone or transitional to potassic alteration zone delineate the centre of a hydrothermal (mineralized) system.
Everton plans to follow up on these results with extensions of these trenches, a deep penetration ground IP survey and eventually with an exploration drilling program, once the required environmental permits are obtained.
