San Andres Silver Project, Durango, Mexico
The San Andres project was a significant silver producer in Durango, Mexico from the 1890s until the Mexican Revolution of 1915. The vendors of the project to Aftermath Silver worked on the project from 2006 until recently investing considerably in the project’s development with the purchase and installation of a 300 tpd mill, mining camp and all permits to allow small scale mining in recent years. The permits all remain in place as does the mill and camp although mining operations were halted some time ago.
Aftermath acquired the project following site visits from its geologists and third party engineers. Notwithstanding the existing potential on the high grade structures that were the source of previous high-grade silver production, the geologists identified other targets on the property that had been previously overlooked; these include bulk tonnage targets in close proximity to the established shallow-dipping, high grade veins.
San Andres represents a fully permitted property with a history of significant high-grade silver production that has largely gone untouched for almost 100 years. Aftermath intends to commit to modern exploration techniques to allow a thorough evaluation of all the potential of the San Andres property as it advances its understanding of the mineralization ahead of plans to drill test a number of targets.
