San Marcial Gold-Silver Project, Sonora State, Mexico

The 100% owned San Marcial project covers over 1,000 hectares and is located 30 km southwest of Cerro Caliche and 20 km east of Magna Gold’s San Francisco mine within the prolific Sonora-Mojave Megashear in Sonora State. The concessions surround the sites of the original mine workings of the San Marcial and Soledad mines that were active in the early 1900s. Both mine areas have yielded samples showing high-grade gold and silver mineralization, with broader low-grade zones of disseminated to stockwork forms of mineralization.

News Update

On January 19, 2021, Sonoro Gold Corp. announced the remaining assay results from its 2020 drilling campaign at the Cerro Caliche gold project in Sonora, Mexico. The 2021 drilling program is currently underway with approximately 50 additional RC and core holes expected to be completed by the end of the first quarter. The latest assays further support the Company’s consideration of the viability for a bulk mining heap-leach development proposal with a conceptual throughput of up to 20,000 tonnes per day (tpd).

On January 05, 2020, Sonoro Gold Corp. announced that the company reported continuing favourable results from eight reverse circulation (RC) drill holes at the premier Buena Suerte and Japoneses gold mineralized zones located in the central region of the Company’s Cerro Caliche gold project in Sonora State, Mexico.

Buena Suerte: zone extended and widened and remains open along strike. At Buena Suerte, five drill holes extended the zone 100 meters to the northwest and 50 meters to the southeast, increasing the total length along strike to approximately 600 meters:

  • SCR-141 intercepted 3.05 m averaging 1.479 g/t Au, including 1.52 m averaging 2.591 g/t Au
  • SCR-142 intercepted 7.62 m averaging 1.322 g/t Au and 12.19 m averaging 0.965 g/t Au
  • SCR-143 intercepted 12.19 m averaging 0.687 g/t Au, including 1.52 m averaging 1.741 g/t Au
  • SCR-148 intercepted 27.44 m averaging 1.170 g/t Au, including 3.05 m averaging 4.696 g/t Au
  • SCR-149 intercepted 12.19 m averaging 0.498 g/t Au from a depth of 4.57 m

On December 18, 2020, Sonoro Gold Corp. announced a very favourable results from its current stepout and infill drilling programs. The current programs have demonstrated a material expansion of several mineralized zones, most notably at Japoneses, Buena Suerte, Veta de Oro, El Rincon and El Colorado (see map below). Based on these results, the Company is revising the parameters for a planned Preliminary Economic Assessment (PEA) to assess the viability of Heap Leach Mining Operation (HLMO) by increasing the target conceptual capacity from 8,000 tonnes per day (tpd) to 20,000 tpd. It drilled 11.25 m of 1.08 g/t Au at Cerro.

On December 08, 2020 Sonoro Gold Corp. has released assay results from its continuing drilling program at the Cerro Caliche project in Sonora state, Mexico, confirming strategic extensions to several shallow gold mineralized zones in the northwest-central region of the concession. The company drilled 21 m of 1.13 g/t AuEq at Cerro.

On November 24, 2020, Sonoro Gold Corp. has released assay results from an additional 20 reverse circulation (RC) drill holes at its Cerro Caliche gold project in Mexico, include several of the best gold grade intercepts recorded to date on the property.

Buena Suerte Zone assay results highlights:

  • Hole SCR-109: 45.72 metres averaging 0.97 g/t Au, including 15.24 metres averaging 2.1 g/t Au.
  • Hole SCR-124: 6.09 metres averaging 3.99 g/t Au, including 3.04 metres averaging 7.80 g/t Au.
  • Hole SCR-127: 10.67 metres averaging 0.96 g/t, including 1.52 metres averaging 2.81 g/t Au.

On November 18, 2020, Sonoro Gold Corp. announced that it has retained McClelland Laboratories Inc. to conduct independent metallurgical testing of the gold mineralization at the Cerro Caliche gold project in Mexico.
