So why does Aguinaga make my rocks hard? Apart from being a perverted geologist and attracted to shiny things (we are closely related to Magpies), I think that it has good odds of being the Jose Mourinho of targets at Cascabel (i.e. the special one).
The short version
- They have found rocks at surface at Aguinaga that are very similar to what has been drilled at Alpala.
- What would happen to Sol Gold if they found an Alpala-sized deposit at surface?
The longer, boring versionAs a pseudo-scientist I have to provide some support for my ideas. This is what I think we have at Cascabel.
What is the evidence for this, well we need to acquaint ourselves with the parts of a porphyry deposit. They can be zoned, with discrete sulphide minerals found in the core and periphery.
High Cu-Au mineralisation is associated with bornite mineralisation (Wafi-Golpu - image above, Ridgeway, Mt. Polley etc.). Why don't we look at some photos of Alpala drill core.

When you combine that with the geophysics you can see that Aguinaga is a very interesting target.

My thinking was that there is a good chance that Sol Gold could fine an Alpala-sized deposit at surface at Aguinaga. If they do that, there we be lots of companies sniffing around to get a slice of the action before it becomes even more.
