Silver Spruce is currently in year 1 of a 2 year agreement to earn 50% of the Jackie Gold & Silver Project from Colibri. For full details of the agreement please see Colibri news release dated October 15th, 2020.
A six-person team (two senior geologists, two junior geologist and two field assistants) and all necessary logistical support will undertake the Phase 2 exploration program, including rock sampling and geological mapping of known areas exhibiting significant alteration or mineralization, collection of structural data and alteration zoning to assist with vectoring toward potential Phase 3 drilling targets. The team also will investigate several known hyperspectral alteration targets identified from satellite imagery. All aspects of the exploration program will be conducted with strict adherence to COVID-19 protocols for personal safety.
For additional information regarding this exploration program please see Silver Spruce's reciprocal news release dated June 10th, 2021.
The Jackie is a promising early stage precious metal project located 175 km east of Hermosillo, Sonora, Mexico. The large grassroots property is located in a very productive region only one to two kilometres south from Colibri's El Mezquite and Diamante properties and is approximately 6 kilometres to the west of Minera Alamos' (TSXV: MAI) Santana project, where the Nicho deposit currently under development and expected to reach commercial production in the near term.
The Jackie Project is located within the western portion of the Sierra Madre Occidental Volcanic Complex within the prominent northwest-trending "Sonora Gold Belt" of northern Mexico and parallel to the precious metals-rich Mojave-Sonora Megashear.
The Property is situated. Other nearby large operating mines include Alamos Gold's Los Mulatos gold mine and Agnico Eagle's La India gold mine located 50-60 km to the northeast, Agnico Eagle's Pinos Altos Mine, 95 km southeast and Argonaut's La Colorada Mine, 100 km to the west.
The 1,130-hectare Property is easily accessible from Hermosillo to the Tepoca area and heading south from Mexican Highway #16 or west from Highway #117, or from Ciudad Obregón travelling northeast on Highway #117 and west to the pueblo of La Quema with vehicles and then pack teams along dry river beds, dirt roads and trails. The southerly road from Highway #16 traverses through the centre of the known gold mineralization at El Mezquite only 2 km north of Jackie. High voltage power lines are positioned on Highway #16.
