Spain Corcoesto Gold Project MineralizationProperty Geology Gold mineralization consists mainly of Arsenopyrite-bearing Quartz Veinsincluded in larger zones of silicification, commonly with sericitic and potassic alteration. Three different styles of mineralization: 1.- Sheeted Quartz Veins 2.- Descrete Quartz Veins 3.- Silicified Breccia 22. Spain Corcoesto Gold Project Mineralization StylesProperty Geology1.- Sheeted Quartz Veins (N70W/70NE): Tightly spaced mm-cm Q veins,with weak Apy dissemination (1% As). High grade in narrow zones, up to 148.50g Au/t over 1.10m (ddh 10W10) Normally, high grade veins are included in lower grade zones of weak silicification with small veins. There may be large zones including few sets of High grade Q veins up to 10.72g Au/t over 17.0m (ddh 10W10) Hosted mainly in biotitic gneiss and migmatites (Pozo del Ingles and Cova Crea West
