Off to a head start: The Alaska Vein
Francisco and Alfonso originally acquired the claims containing the known Alaska vein, a high-grade gold and copper vein bearing similar characteristics to their past discoveries.
Surface sampling and prospecting has demonstrated continuity of the Alaska vein over one kilometre with sampling returning up to 7.22 g/t gold, 1.26% copper and 48 g/t silver.
Where: In the prolific Sierra Madre gold belt which has produced over 80 million ounces of gold from dozens of mines. The project is located on private land near the mining-friendly city of Hermosillo in Sonora State, Mexico, with excellent infrastructure including paved highway access, power, and water.
Why: Alfonso and Francisco are confident about reproducing past successes with this project. They have determined that there is likely parallel veins associated with the Alaska vein and possibly a large deep seated mineralized source. Work underway….
The discovery at La Colorada began with two veins but in between was a large area of disseminated gold which enabled a successful low cost heap leach mining operation
Now Ridgestone Mining Corp has the opportunity to reap the benefits of Alfonso and Francisco’s expertise by earning 100%.
