Exploring the Sierra Madre of Mexico for gold and base metals.
We mainly serve clients in the junior mineral exploration sector by first guiding the project acquisition process in the name of the client, then designing and executing exploration programs to evaluate the project. Work that we do includes historic data compilation, geological and geochemical surveying, alteration mapping, interpretation of remote sensing data, underground mapping and drill supervision. Minera Camargo owns a D6N Caterpillar tractor that it uses to support drill crews by repairing and building drill access. It also owns field portable laboratory equipment that it uses to analyse the geochemistry and clay alteration minerals of surface samples and drill core/cuttings.
Although the Mexican mineral exploration landscape has matured significantly over the last two decades, much of the country remains underexplored by modern methods. It is richly endowed with mineral belts, mainly of Mesozoic and younger ages. Mesozoic ore deposits are mostly polymetallic volcanogenic massive sulfide (VMS) and Cr-Cu-Ni(-PGE) deposits associated with oceanic ultramafic-mafic complexes. Intrusion of plutons related to porphyry copper and magmatic hydrothermal iron oxide copper gold (MH-IOCG) systems peaked in the Paleocene. Between the Eocene and Early Miocene, continental extension resulted in eruption of one of the largest silicic volcanic fields on Earth. Mineral deposits related to this event include epithermal gold-silver veins, porphyry molybdenum deposits and tin-tungsten greisens.
