I was blown away by the hugely impressive PR on the Tesbasquena project (link). In the 200 days since the project was acquired, they've been sprinting out of the blocks and collected an almost unbelievable 18 samples. That exploration office mush be a hive of activity, especially now that they'll be drilling a humongous phase 1 drill program (2 holes for 500m) on their FULLY PERMITTED MINE.
We all know, it is important to take baby steps and not rush into things, quality over quantity. Like fine wine, we all know that you can't rush exploration. I mean, look at those amateurs at Silvercrest, rushing around being vampire-like (sampling all veins), drilling and all of that useless crap, I mean where where did it get them (link).
Ohh, but they don't have a FULLY PERMITTED MINE! So screw you Eric..
As Alain Benule Laputain tells us:
Yeah, the deepest samples were the best....bitches, none of that high-grade near surface crap.
Location, hmmm, that number refers to the level and normally uses the elevation (in meters - metric yards for the Yanks) above sea-level, so a bigger number is higher....
So, the half-kilo stuff is at the surface, but the (3) samples from the lowest working, the 2050 and 2059 levels did return some >200 g/t samples, so that's ok, but when you look at the number of samples/level, typically 2-3, you suddenly see that they mine is probably very small (90m vertical extent and probably something similar horizontally), but that doesn't matter as it is FULLY PERMITTED!!!
So all historic exploration has focused on the oxide zone? Just doing a quick literature search found thisI can across this (link)
That is quite a bit of info and 15 holes have been drilled, I would expect that a couple would have explored below the oxide zone, maybe you should ask Peñoles for the drilling data?
I do have to applaud you for supporting local assay labs, trudging those 18 samples the arduous ~130km to the Laboratorio Metalurgico Courtade, in San Luis Potosi, when you could have just dropped them off at either of the two international ISO 9001 certified prep labs that are just 40km away in the city Zacatecas?
