San Marco Prepares Buck Property for Drilling

By | 2019
Vancouver, B.C. – September 24, 2019: San Marco Resources Inc. (SMN: TSX-V) announces that its exploration activities on the recently 100% optioned Buck gold/silver property are continuing in preparation for drilling. Drilling will commence upon receipt of a drill permit (for which an application has already been made).The Buck property is located approximately 15 km south of Houston B.C. and has excellent road access enabling year-round exploration. Historical exploration includes drilling, ground and airborne geophysics, soil and rock chip grid sampling. San Marco’s geologists have compiled all available data, generated a 3-D model of historical drill assays, re-logged what little drill core is available and completed a reinterpretation of exploration potential.San Marco believes that mineralized drill core from previous exploration activities of others, indicates a breccia/diatreme (pipe) complex, which appears to be geologically similar to many multi-million ounce gold deposits worldwide. (See the corporate presentation on San Marco’s website for details.).Compelling exploration features on the Buck property include;

  • Surface gold/silver mineralization footprint 800m X 600m, open in all directions.
  • Mineralized breccia from surface to 250m (vertical) and open in depth. This is confirmed in the area where reasonable drill core was retrieved and re-logged.
  • All historical drill holes have strong to significant gold/silver mineralization, the majority of which end in mineralization.
  • Additional exploration targets exist on the ~15,000-ha property.
  • Excellent road access allows for year-round exploration.

Bob Willis, San Marco’s Executive Director states: “Acquisition of the Buck gold/silver project gives our exploration team an excellent opportunity to quickly create shareholder value through an aggressive drill program. Initial drilling, designed around our breccia/diatreme model, will step out from areas where we were able to retrieve historical drill core and identify long intercepts of mineralized breccia. Thanks to the efforts of previous explorers, none of whom focused on a breccia/diatreme model, we already know the main target area at Buck has the scale to accommodate a large gold resource. But we’re equally interested in the target because it’s still open in most directions and in Buck’s broader potential because there are other areas that present good, and untested, targets when viewed using the new breccia/diatreme model.”

San Marco Announces Option to Acquire 100% Interest in Buck Gold-Silver Project, Northern British Columbia

By | 2019
Vancouver, B.C. – July 16, 2019: San Marco Resources Inc. (SMN: TSX-V) (“San Marco” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has entered into an option agreement whereby San Marco has the right to acquire a 100% interest in the Buck Property, an intermediate sulphidation, epithermal gold/silver zinc property near the town of Houston in north-central British Columbia.The optionors are Dick Billingsley, and his wife, Gaye Richards, who notably vended the Tatogga project in the Golden Triangle to GT Gold Corp.

The Buck Property highlights include:

  • large hydrothermal system, intensely altered and oxidized breccia bodies possibly diatreme related, all mineralization is open in all directions.
  • considered to be part of the Telkwa Formation of the lower Jurassic Hazelton Group; similar to some major bulk tonnage gold deposits in B.C., such as NewGold’s Blackwater-Davidson deposit;
  • close proximity to several former operating mines: Equity Silver, (Equity Silver Mines Inc.), Endako (Centerra Gold Inc.) and Huckleberry (Imperial Metals Corporation);
  • total of 68 prior drill holes have been conducted within the property – most holes ended in gold/silver/zinc mineralization. Mineralization extends up to 300 meters below surface suggesting bulk tonnage gold/silver/zinc potential;
  • excellent exploration potential for possible new discoveries at multiple untested targets including porphyry copper deposit; high grade, structurally controlled gold/silver mineralization; and additional mineralized breccia bodies.
  • road accessible with excellent infrastructure, including access to electrical and gas utilities, highways and major airports; and
  • large land package totaling approximately 15,000 hectares

See accompanying location map.

Bob Willis, Executive Director of San Marco stated, “We are pleased to announce the acquisition of an option to acquire the Buck Property. This property represents a significant opportunity for the Company and provides San Marco with an advanced exploration staged gold-silver, zinc project in a prominent exploration region of British Columbia. The Buck Property has seen reliable prior work by notable operators, yet many of the property’s prospective exploration targets have gone untested to date. We continue to be bullish on our existing suite of Mexican prospects, but given the Buck Property’s clearly delineated targets, excellent location and year-round access and infrastructure, we intend to rapidly explore this new property and identify key target areas towards a drill program within the coming months.”

Historical Drilling:

A total of 68 prior drill holes have been drilled on the property – most holes ended in gold/silver/zinc mineralization. Mineralization extends up to 300 metres below surface suggesting bulk tonnage, low grade gold/silver/zinc potential. The Buck property has large volumes of mineralization containing greater than 0.10 grams per tonne (“g/t”) gold; greater than 1-3 g/t silver, and strongly elevated, zinc.

Note: the reported grade at the nearby analogous Blackwater-Davidson project is reported to be 0.74 grams per tonne gold.

The Buck Property’s Background:

The Buck Property is located within a geologically-favourable, mineralized setting that is highly amenable to discovery of economic precious and base metal deposits. Target types include intermediate sulphidation, polymetallic epithermal deposits similar to Blackwater-Davidson, as well as porphyry Cu±Mo±Au deposits similar to nearby active and past-producing mines at Huckleberry and the Babine Lake area.

Mineralization at Buck is hosted mostly by felsic volcanic rocks that are spatially and genetically related to felsic intrusions of the highly-productive, Late Cretaceous Bulkley Intrusive Suite. These igneous rocks are temporally and compositionally correlative with host rocks and causative intrusions at the Blackwater-Davidson, Capoose and Newton polymetallic epithermal deposits.

Near-term Exploration Potential of the Buck Property:

Large portions of the Buck Property hydrothermal system have been tested only by reconnaissance drilling and many highly prospective areas remain completely untested. The scale of the Buck system, its magmatic-hydrothermal complexity and the extent of cover implies a strong potential to discover additional zones.

Prior drilling at the property returned broad intercepts of mineralization in nearly every hole, but drilling is not evenly spaced across the mineralization and many large prospective areas have not yet been drilled tested. In those areas which have been more closely drilled, there is good continuity of gold/silver grades and many drill holes end in significant gold/silver mineralization. These areas will be a priority for near-term follow up by the Company.

Based on its preliminary review of historic data, the Company’s management believes the property may have potential for overlooked brecciation that may be related to a possible diatreme (explosive breccia pipe). This would support the potential for the vertical implications of the breccia to host significant size potential. The Company’s management also believes there is the potential presence of a concealed porphyry deposit in the vicinity of the Buck property, based on comparisons with the Kerr, Sulphurets, Mitchell, Iron Cap and Snowfields deposits in the Iskut region of northwestern British Columbia. Permissible target types include Mo, Cu-Mo and Cu-Au deposits. This exploration model has also not been tested within the Buck Property.

Option Terms:

Upon incurring at least $112,000 in exploration by December 31, 2019 and completion of the following, San Marco will have exercised the option and earned a 100% interest in the Buck Property:

Due Date Payment Shares of San Marco
Upon signing $25,000 0
Following 3:1 share consolidation 0 250,000
First anniversary of Exchange approval $25,000 400,000
Second anniversary of Exchange approval $25,000 500,000
Third anniversary of Exchange approval $25,000 750,000
Fourth anniversary of Exchange approval $50,000 1,000,000
Fifth anniversary of Exchange approval $150,000 1,100,000
Totals $300,000 4,000,000

Once the option is exercised, San Marco must grant the optionors a 2.5% net smelter returns royalty. The royalty can be reduced to 1.5% of net smelter returns in consideration of a payment of $2,500,000 to the optionors made any time prior to the first anniversary of the commencement of commercial production.

San Marco Resources Provides Corporate Update And Growth Strategy For 2019

By | 2019
Vancouver, B.C. – April 18, 2019: San Marco Resources Inc. (SMN: TSX-V) (“San Marco” or the “Company”) is pleased to provide a corporate update on continued exploration activities at its existing projects in Sonora, Mexico along with ongoing evaluation of possible new project acquisitions currently under review.

San Marco continues to hold a diversified portfolio of prospective property assets in Mexico’s mining-friendly Sonora State and is continually pursuing its efforts to identify potential new property acquisitions to add value to the Company’s portfolio. The Company’s near-term strategy for 2019 is expected to include the following:

  • Near-term exploration programs and budgets being finalized for the Company’s 100% owned Espiritu SMR and 1068 properties with a focus on target delineation;
  • Follow-up work programs being contemplated for multiple underexplored areas within the 100% owned Chunibas Project (see details below);
  • Multiple submissions for highly prospective new property acquisitions becoming available through the Mexican government lottery (libertad de terrenos);
  • Strategic targeting and evaluation of multiple potential new property acquisitions in various jurisdictions; and
  • Ongoing potential partnership discussions regarding the Company’s existing assets.

Christian Grijalva, CEO of San Marco, stated “We are excited about the outlook for San Marco in the months ahead. The Company maintains a comfortable working capital balance and relatively tight share structure. This, combined with the Company’s current suite of property assets and extensive in-country intelligence to source possible new acquisitions under reasonable terms, provides the Company numerous avenues to bring growth and value for its shareholders. We look forward to providing additional details as our work progresses.”

As announced in August 2018, San Marco signed an earn-in agreement with a wholly-owned subsidiary of Antofagasta plc over San Marco´s 100% owned Chunibas Project in Sonora State, Mexico (see news release August 9, 2018). A firm exploration expenditure commitment of US$700,000 funded by Antofagasta was deployed for an initial phase of drilling in the partnership. Results from the drill program were announced in December 2018.

Though the initial program evidenced encouraging characteristics associated with a possible mineralized system warranting additional follow up, Antofagasta determined the results did not meet its required threshold at this time and has elected not to proceed.

The Company thanks Antofagasta for its interest in Chunibas and funding of the initial drill program which provided valuable, additional technical information applicable to ongoing exploration work at multiple underexplored prospective targets within the project. San Marco once again retains a 100% interest in the project and management believes it remains prospective for follow up exploration that may be conducted by the Company or other potential interested parties in the future.

San Marco Announces Results of Phase I Drilling and Ongoing Joint Venture Exploration at the Chunibas Copper-Silver Project, Sonora, Mexico

By | 2019

Vancouver, B.C. – January 17, 2019: San Marco Resources Inc. (SMN: TSX-V) (“San Marco” or the “Company”) announces that Phase 1 exploration drilling results from its 100% owned Chunibas copper/silver project, located in Sonora State, Mexico (the “Project”) have been received. San Marco and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Antofagasta plc (“Antofagasta”) have entered into an earn-in agreement to jointly explore and drill test several copper-silver rich mineralized targets mapped on surface. Antofagasta is funding all activities during the Phase I exploration program, to a maximum of US$700,000.

Initial results from the program confirm the existence of a typical copper-silver “Manto-Type” system. This initial program consisted of approximately 1,640 metres of diamond drilling distributed over 7 shallow drill holes. Five holes tested 1.2 km of the NW-SE striking mineralized corridor, whilst the remaining two holes tested approximately 400m width along one NE – SW section perpendicular to the corridor.

The initial drill campaign achieved and confirmed the down-dip and along strike continuity of alteration, mineralization and receptive rock units mapped on surface. Highlights of the mineralized intervals are as follows:

  • Drill hole CHD18-05: 7.45 meters @ 0.1% Cu and 2.3 g/ton Ag
    22 meters @ 0.05% Cu and 0.7 g/ton Ag
  • Drill hole CHD18-06: 3.0 meters @ 0.08% Cu and 0.6 g/ton Ag
  • Drill hole CHD18-07: 6.0 meters @ 0.06% Cu and 0.3 g/ton Ag

San Marco CEO Christian Grijalva stated: “We are pleased that Phase I drill results have confirmed the existence of a copper mineralized system and provided useful third dimension data to assist in vectoring towards the source of mineralization, and potentially higher-grade copper zones. The Company’s goal is to identify a sizable mineralized “Manto-Type” system with the potential to meet the high thresholds of its partnership with Antofagasta. The first phase drill program was designed to broadly test the target for certain geological characteristics associated with the type of deposit sought. The Company and its partner will evaluate the latest data for ongoing exploration and vectoring guidance in planning a next phase of exploration.”

Final interpretation of drilling results will continue through Q1, to help vector towards areas which may host feeder zones of higher-grade mineralization.

Additional planned field work for Q1 will include detailed mapping and sampling of additional prospective areas already identified by first-pass work. The additional areas to be explored are represented by several volcanic units with strong evidence of alteration and mineralization, similar to what has been seen over the drill tested zones.

San Marco Announces Results of Phase I Drilling and Ongoing Joint Venture Exploration at the Chunibas Copper-Silver Project, Sonora, Mexico

San Marco Confirms Porphyry Copper-Molybdenum-Gold System at 100% Owned Espiritu SMR Project in Sonora, Mexico

By | 2019
Vancouver, B.C. – January 8th, 2019: San Marco Resources Inc. (SMN: TSX-V) (“San Marco” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce it has completed a critical first phase of exploration and evaluation which confirms the existence of a porphyry copper-molybdenum-gold system at its 100% owned Espiritu SMR property in Sonora State, Mexico. In addition, work from this phase has identified previously unrecognized vectoring tools to optimize future exploration efforts toward priority target areas of potential best-grade mineralization.

As part of the Phase I program, San Marco engaged renowned consulting geologist Luciano Bocanegra (see the Company’s news release dated October 18, 2018) to lead the San Marco team in the reinterpretation and consolidation of all previous data from the Espiritu SMR property. Data utilized in this evaluation included geological mapping, surface rock sampling, re-logging of historical drill core and review of rock geochemical data. Results and recommendations from Mr. Bocanegra’s work included:

  • confirmation of a multi-stage copper-moly-gold porphyry system with a minimum alteration footprint measuring 2.5 km x 1.2 km, open in multiple directions;
  • identification of previously unrecognized vectoring tools that can assist in targeting potential areas of best-grade mineralization to depth and buried targets under post mineral rocks;
  • indication that copper mineralization may be preserved at depth within the shallower part of the porphyry system(s);
  • confirmation that the best copper mineralization in surface and drill core samples is related to intense quartz-chalcopyrite-pyrite stockwork in potassic altered rocks; and
  • recommendation to conduct additional deeper penetrating geophysical surveying to assist in locating the potential source of the mineralization seen in drill holes.

“We are pleased with the results and interpretations of this first phase of work at Espiritu SMR. The important data compilation and invaluable insights from Luciano Bocanegra has confirmed the porphyry copper-moly-gold potential of the Espiritu SMR project and heightened our understanding of its ongoing exploration potential. This extensive interpretive work and recent re-mapping of the project area has better determined the surface extent of the porphyry system(s) and evidenced several of these zones remain open for ongoing exploration. We are now utilizing this new information, interpretations and recommendations as a means of optimizing and streamlining our future work which is expected to include the recommended magnetic and ZTEM surveys to assist in locating a deeper source of the mineralization in advance of possible drilling at the project”, said CEO Chris T. Grijalva.

About the Espiritu SMR Property

The Company was awarded with the Espiritu SMR property through the Mexican government’s mineral concession lottery in Q2 2018. Espiritu SMR is located approximately 230 kilometres (“km”) east of Hermosillo and 15 km east of the town of Sahuaripa.
