The El Tordillo, El Alazan, and El Overo exploration concessions form a contiguous land package located approximately 60 kilometers NE of the La Josefina project at the convergence of several prospective structural trends. Their combined mineral rights total 29,800 hectares (298 square kilometers or 73,600 acres) and are 100% wholly owned by CCSA, the Argentine subsidiary of Hunt Mining. The property block is currently in early stages of reconnaissance exploration. Additional exploration is planned for the coming field season.
The property block shares the same general geology as all of the other Santa Cruz properties controlled by the company.
Prior to the work done by Hunt Mining's CCSA staff there is no record or indication that any precious metal exploration was ever carried-out on the El Tordillo / El Alazan / El Overo property block.
In 2006, Hunt Mining's staff conducted a comprehensive analysis of satellite imagery covering the Deseado Massif. During this analysis a large area of open ground stood-out as a region with high discovery potential. This potential was based on the structural setting, known trends of mineralization, and the apparent widespread hydrothermal alteration interpreted from the imagery. This prompted company geologists to make a site visit where the prospective nature of the area was confirmed. The El Tordillo, El Alazan and El Overo exploration claims (cateos) were then filed with the provincial mining authorities to cover this area. In October of 2009, two crews of company geologists undertook a campaign of reconnaissance mapping and sampling to define the nature, scale, and strength of the mineralization in the area.
An independent technical report has not yet been completed for any of these projects and as such all reported results cannot be considered NI 43-101 compliant.
