Hace una semana, Azure anunciaba la compra del proyecto de altas leyes de zinc-plomo-plata Oposura, ubicado en Sonora; hoy informa que ha adquirido el proyecto de de oro y cobalto Sara Alicia, situado en la misma entidad. Los muestreos realizados en la propiedad Sara Alicia han arrojado leyes de 39 g/t de oro y 6.9% de cobalto. 

 La compañía australiana adquirió el 100% de participación del proyecto, donde se realizó un minado limitado de oro y cobalto en los 30’s. Se han realizado muestreos con muy altas leyes tanto en las obras históricas como en afloramientos. Igualmente se han identificado zonas separadas de cobre-zinc-plata. La Compañía ha iniciado actividades de exploración de seguimiento con miras a definir blancos de perforación. 

 El Director de Azure, Tony Rovira, declaró que están muy entusiasmados con este nuevo proyecto, y que las altas leyes de oro y las excepcionalmente altas leyes de cobalto los han alentado para iniciar perforaciones tan pronto como sea posible. “Los depósitos de cobalto son virtualmente desconocidos en México, lo que hace muy loable la identificación de una propiedad con altas leyes de oro y cobalto por parte de nuestro equipo de exploración. 

Esta era una oportunidad muy buena para dejarla pasar y su adquisición le ha dado una dimensión extra a nuestro portafolio de proyectos”. Comentó el directivo.

Azure ofrece comentarios sobre esta operacion, y situa al yacimiento por el rumbo del Quiriego, puntualizando que la mina Sara Alicia data de los años treinta y que por el traspaso la compañia pago a los antiguos dueños 125 mil dolares americanos.


Azure Managing Director Mr Tony Rovira also commented, “During Azure’s recent search for an advanced stage precious metal / base metal project, which culminated in the recently announced acquisition of the Oposura Project, the Company identified many early stage properties with good potential. One of the absolute stand-outs was the Sara Alicia gold-cobalt project. “Cobalt deposits are virtually unknown in Mexico, which makes the identification by our exploration team of a property containing high-grade gold and cobalt mineralisation very commendable. 

This was an opportunity too good to pass up and its acquisition has added an extra dimension to our Company’s project portfolio. “Spectacular grades returned from our first sampling program indicate that this under-explored property holds potential for the definition of a body of high grade gold-cobalt mineralisation, as well as for copperzinc-silver mineralisation. We look forward to drilling Sara Alicia this year, along with progressing our flagship project Oposura.” Key Terms and Background to the Acquisition Early on in Azure’s search for new projects, the Company’s geologists identified the Sara Alicia district as an area of interest for precious and base metal mineralisation, including cobalt.

The mineral concession that covered the historical Sara Alicia mine workings had recently been cancelled by the Mining Registry and was potentially unavailable for staking for several years. However, Azure’s legal team identified a course of action that, with the cooperation and assistance of the previous owners, enabled the cancellation to be revoked, and the ownership to be transferred to Azure’s wholly-owned Mexican subsidiary company Minera Piedra Azul SA de CV. In recognition of their assistance, Azure made a payment of US$125,000 to the previous owners, a local Mexican family who had held title to the Sara Alicia mineral concession since the 1930s. A further and final payment of US$125,000 will be made to the family upon the project achieving commercial production. 

No royalties are payable over future mineral production and there are no back-in, earn-back or other rights. Project Summary Sara Alicia is located on the western flank of the Sierra Madre Occidental mining province which hosts major operating gold, silver and copper mines (see Figure 1). Access to site is good with a sealed road to the town of Alamos and the nearby Piedras Verdes Copper Mine, and then via gravel roads to site. Historically, Sara Alicia was a small-scale producer of gold and cobalt in the 1930s from an underground mining operation. No production records are available, however historical plans and reports indicate that the mine was operated on six levels to a depth of approximately 60m below surface. 

The Sara Alicia mineral concession covers nine hectares and contains all historical mine workings and all observed exposures of outcropping gold-cobalt mineralisation. A surrounding tenement that covered...................................
