The Opportunity:

Colombia, for many years was a diamond in the rough, with known mineral reserves, oil and gas and coal has in recent years become the focus of the world in Latin America. Jumping a massive 42 positions in international ranking in three short years has brought foreign investment and tourism to the country for the first time in decades. A focus of President Alvaro Uribe, now in his second term, was to bring the world's attention to Latin America and especially Colombia. He has been publicly recognized as a supporter of the US war on drugs by continually implementing the anti-drug strategy of Plan Colombia, which infiltrates and shuts down the funding of guerilla terrorists. He is recognized as a supporter of the US war on terror. As well as the implementation of free trade agreements with the U.S and recently Canada, while maintaining generally positive diplomatic relations with Spain and most Latin American nations.

The Properties:

The claim concession covers an area of over 296 hectares. Upon testing, two main veins consisting of milky white quartz have been found. The first apt fully named El Colmillo has a vein with a thickness between 0.20M and 3.2M with a distance of 300m with potential to extend for an additional 1.2 km from recognized faults and testing. The next vein named La Muela is located approximately 600 m to the west of El Colmillo. With a vein thickness of 0.1mand 0.5m the La Muela vein is of recognizable size as well. There are also other unnamed, but recognized veins on the property.

If only the two main veins El Colmilla and La Muela are considered, with both having regional continuity, assuming a grade average of 10/g/T gold and a down-dip continuation of mineralization for 300 m, the total gold content (assuming a grade average of 10 gr/ton) and normal disseminated wall rock mineralization, it is estimated that approximately 900,000 ounces of gold could be produced from. Current gross value of that ore is estimated to be $810 million at a gold value of $900US per ounce. No value has been placed on additional revenue from any additional commodities contained in the ore. The gross value can be increased significantly by the probability of the existence of additional sub parallel veins, as well as by continuity of all mineralized structures along strike both to the north and south of the known workings.
