The Ana Paula concessions are central to Newstrike’s 88,000 hectares in the Guerrero Gold Belt and forms part of a district scale mining camp that is host to Torex Gold’s ‘Morelos Project’ and to Goldcorp’s producing ‘Los Filos’ project.
Covering 7,622 hectares over 4 mineral claims in the established Guerrero Gold Belt, The Ana Paula properties include the Ana Paula Project, which is in the advanced exploration stage, where Goldcorp has previously identified anomalous gold at surface over a 1.0 by 2.0 kilometre area and in a similar geological setting to other deposits of the Guerrero Gold Belt.
Newstrike has commenced its drilling program at the Ana Paula project in Guerrero State, Mexico. The scope of the program provides for a minimum 5,000 meters within a mineralized area previously drill tested by Goldcorp in 2005. This initial drill program is the first step in testing a 2km by 1km wide area that remains open along a northeasterly strike and at depth.
