Holly Project- Guatemala

  •  

    The Holly property straddles the regional Jocotan Fault which forms part of the Motagua Suture Zone, 400 km long by up to 80 km wide deformation zone that separates the North American and Caribbean plates. At Holly the Jocotan is mineralized and forms a distinct east-west trending ridge separating older metamorphosed sediments to the north and much younger volcanics to the south. Radius has discovered multiple high grade gold and silver occurrences along and crosscutting this portion of the Jocotan and have has success in the limited drilling that has been done on these targets thus far (Figure 1). The Holly and Banderas property are under a joint venture agreement with Volcanic Gold Mines. 

    Holly Project Highlights 

    • Low sulphidation gold silver epithermal system
    • Multiple high-grade quartz veins intersecting wide mineralized Jocotan fault zone 
    • Located in eastern Guatemala in a terrain with world class gold-silver mines and deposits
      • Key features of both Escobal and Cerro Blanco deposits
    • High-grade gold-silver mineralization 
      • Surface results to 396 g/t gold and 7092 g/t silver 
      • 2002 drill results to 6.00 m @ 43.56 g/t gold and 1,618 g/t silver 
      • Ongoing drilling producing results to 4.58 m @ 79.84 g/t gold, 5,053 g/t silver
    • Limited drilling to date of the Jocotan fault zone and most of the cross-cutting veins
      • Only one vein, La Pena, has more than 4 drill holes
    • A maiden Inferred Mineral Resource has been estimated for the first target, La Peña vein.
    • The high grade La Peña vein remains open to expansion along strike and importantly at depth, where exceptionally high grade results have been returned.
    • Multiple other drill targets remain un-tested at Holly with potential for new discoveries.
    • Joint Venture with Volcanic Gold Mines Inc.
    • Holly is 60km by paved road to Bluestone’s planned processing plant.

    Volcanic can earn a 60% interest in the Holly and the Banderas projects by spending the cumulative amount of US$7.0 million on exploration of the Properties within 48 months from the date of the agreement.

    An initial US$1M must be spent on exploration within the 12 months of receiving the required drill permits, which expenditure will include a minimum 3,000 m of drilling on the properties.

    Following the exercise of the Option, Volcanic will enter into a standard 60/40 Joint Venture in order to further develop the Properties.

    Volcanic has also been granted an exclusive right to evaluate all other property interests of Radius in Guatemala with a right to acquire an interest in any or all other such properties on reasonable terms.
