With over five billion ounces of silver from major epithermal districts, Mexico is the most silver-endowed place on earth. The Mexican silver belt measures over 800 kilometres in length and 50 to 100 kilometres in width, presenting a large, focused prospective area. Plata Latina's expertise in the "ore horizon" concept and extensive experience in Mexico provides a competitive edge for discovery of new districts between old historic deposits.
Plata Latina's objective is to discover Mexico's next great high-grade silver district by applying the ore horizon exploration concept. The discovery at Naranjillo proves the effectiveness of the ore horizon exploration model.
Mexican epithermal silver deposits typically have little surface alteration or geochemical expression above a deeper ore horizon. This style is exemplified by the San Dimas, Fresnillo, Zacatecas, Guanajuato and Pachuca-Real del Monte districts of Mexico and serves as the Company's exploration model in its search for new districts.
