Projects Overview

Hunt Mining operates in Argentina through its wholly owned subsidiary Cerro Cazador S.A.

Cerro Cazador S.A. maintains control of numerous gold, silver and base metal prospective projects within this highly productive mineral district, making the Company one of the largest landholders in the region. In total, including the recent acquisition of the Martha Mine, the Company holds mineral rights to more than 37 properties with an estimated 1,737 km sq. (429,407 acres or 173,775 hectares).

All the properties are located within the prominent geologic feature, the Deseado Massif; which has proven to host significant epithermal deposits of precious metals.

The Deseado Massif is comprised mainly of middle-to late-Jurassic age volcanic and volcaniclastic rock units. These units are dominated by rhyolitic to rhyodacitic ignimbrite flows and lava domes together with subordinate agglomerates, volcanic breccias and tuffs with minor basalts, andesites and volcanic agglomerates intercalated upward with mafic tuffs, conglomerates and sediments.

Faults active during the period of intense Jurassic extension and volcanism trend mostly NNW-SSE and form a series of grabens, and horst blocks. Since Jurassic time, the rocks have been cut by normal faults of several different orientations, but have undergone only a moderate amount of compression.

In general, the Jurassic rocks remain relatively un-deformed and generally flat to gently dipping, except locally where close to faults, volcanic domes or similar features.
