Montana Negra Project Map

Project Highlights:

  • Orogenic gold system similar to La Choya and San Francisco mines
  • Target: open-pit leachable mineralization in granitic and metamorphic rocks
  • Preliminary surface samples up 9.5 gpt Au

Montana Negra contains a series of gold prospects in Proterozoic age Pinal schist adjacent to a fluorite bearing granite.  The concept target is orogenic quartz-gold veins under adjacent gravel cover.  A significant placer deposit was mined historically in the streams draining the Montana Negra area.
