Dozens of mineralized and potentially mineralized veins at Mogollon that have never been drill tested provide potential for considerable resource expansion in an epithermal vein system totaling more than 45 miles (72 km) of strike length and only 3 miles (4.8 km) have been developed.
In January 2010 Columbus Exploration drilled 7,293 feet (2,210 meters) of core in eleven holes at Mogollon. The drilling was exploratory in nature, concentrated on the Anna E. vein, the Ida May-Independence vein system, and the uppermost levels above the Consolidated deposit which was partially delineated by drilling in the 1980's.
Three holes were drilled by Cordex at Anna E. in 1984 and all intersected the vein between the surface and 300 feet of depth. Drill hole MGR-29 cut five feet grading 0.290 opt Au (9.93 g/t) and 5.55 opt Ag (190 g/t), drill hole MGR-30 cut five feet grading 0.415 opt Au (14.2 g/t) and 15.40 opt Ag (530.5 g/t), and drill hole MGR-2 cut 25 feet grading 0.230 opt Au (7.88 g/t) and 1.19 opt Ag (40.7 g/t) which included five feet of 0.565 opt Au (19.35 g/t) and 2.56 opt Ag (87.7 g/t). This zone remains completely open to the west but does not appear to extend to depths below 300-350 feet in the area drilled.
Five holes were drilled at the Ida May-Independence vein system; these were the first holes ever drilled on these veins. Drilling cut the system between 6,900 and 6,950 feet of elevation, below barren surface faults with minor veining exposed at 7,160 and 7,380 feet of elevation. Between 45 and 90 feet of quartz stockworks and veins were cut in all of the holes, however the best grade was 0.063 opt Au (2.15 g/t) and 3.23 opt Ag (110.7 g/t). The vein widths and degree of alteration are increasing with depth and further drilling is recommended to cut the structures at 6,200-6,400 of elevation.
Three holes were drilled to test the area between the surface and mineralized intercepts encountered in the 1980's drilling by Cordex on the Consolidated deposit on the Queen vein. The Consolidated deposit contains an historical resource of 845,000 tons (767,000 tonnes) averaging 9.35 opt (320 g/t) silver and 0.15 opt (5.1 g/t) gold (7,900,750 oz silver and 126,750 oz gold). The recent drill holes were planned to cut the vein above the 1980's drill hole MGR-14 which cut 72.5 feet grading 0.084 opt Au (2.87 g/t) and 3.93 opt Ag (134.6 g/t), including 21 feet (16 feet true width) of 0.147 opt Au (5.03 g/t) and 7.11 opt Ag (243.5 g/t) at a depth of about 1,000 feet. Hole MGC-48 was positioned to step-out 400 feet updip from the historical Consolidated deposit and cut the Queen vein at 500 feet below the surface. The hole intercepted 150 feet of mostly calcite, with much lesser quartz, and carried little grade. Drill hole MGC-54 was positioned to step-out 200 feet updip from the Consolidated deposit but deviated upwards 10-15 degrees missing the target and was therefore abandoned.
Drill hole MGC-55 was drilled to intersect the target missed by hole MGC-54 however it also deviated by approximately 2.5 degrees, but it did cut the Queen vein about 215 feet above the mineralized intercept in MGR-14. The vein had a much higher percentage of quartz at this level, and was well mineralized, but over narrow intervals.
