The Chorrillos project

The “GONALBERT” mining area consists of 10 grids covering 2.5 km² located 15 km southeast of Iska Iska. A small artisanal mine recovering silver from a galena vein is in operation on the property. Geologically, the property is underlain by Miocene dacitic domes and dykes that have intruded Ordovician basement sediments, likely representing a collapsed caldera 1-2 km in diameter. Alteration is widespread on the property, with sulphide mineralization occurring as veins, vein breccias, stockworks, veinlets and disseminations. Near the surface, the rocks are heavily oxidized. The mineralization appears to be part of a large intermediate to high sulphidation silver-lead-zinc epithermal system related to volcanism and caldera formation. In the valley, occurrences of tin and tungsten have been reported. The property has received only limited modern exploration and has never been drilled.

The “FELICIDAD” mining area consists of 4 grids covering 1 km² located approximately 5 km southeast of the Gonalbert mining area. In Felicidad, the main structural feature is a conical, heavily leached and oxidized hill known by locals as “pequeño Cerro Rico” or little rich hill. Past artisanal mining has excavated galena veins and silver-rich vein breccias. The geological setting is similar to that of the Gonalbert mining area with an intensely mineralized intermediate to high sulphidation epithermal system with a prominent oxidized cap. The property has never been drilled.

Cartier Iron is planning a program of geological mapping, geophysical surveys, sampling of historic workings and trenching followed by diamond drilling on both properties.
