Prospero Silver has engaged Geotech, a contractor, to perform a ZTEM (z-Axis Tipper Electromagnetic System) and magnetic helicopter airborne geophysical survey. The survey will include the Campana and San Luis del Cordero projects in central Durango State.
The company has planned the survey an area of 1048 line-km in total, which covers 192 km2 and embraces the ~ 9 Km alluvium covered valley amid both the projects.
The ZTEM and magnetic surveys offers a comparatively deep imaging technology that can map structure, substratum geology and modification from the surface till 1500 meters depth exploration. The purpose of the survey is to offer new targets under alluvium or volcanic post-mineral cover and can be pursued with ground Induced Polarisation (IP) or soil geochemistry.
The Company has information from drilling at both Cordero and Campana projects, which will give "ground truthing" for the area’s extensive geophysics program. The program, which is planned, unites airborne and ground geophysics, and soil geochemistry. The company is anticipated to offer better target description to perform a more efficient drilling program to look for further diatreme-hosted or skarn-hosted mineralized zones.
