Aztec Minerals (AZT.V) has now completed its airborne magnetic survey over the Tombstone project in Arizona, and this survey confirmed the existence of what appears to be three target areas that were previously discovered through a mapping and sampling program. Additionally, the survey identified two additional targets which brings the total amount of CRD-targets to five.
Aztec has now refined and defined the main structures and will follow up on this with an audio-frequency magneto tellurics (‘AMT’) survey to further check up on the conductivity and resistivity of the rocks. To figure out if a target could indeed host CRD-type mineralization, Aztec would ideally like to find areas with low resistivity and high conductivity as that would be a clear signature for a Carbonate Replacement Deposit.
The company also continues to work on its Cervantes project in Mexico’s Sonora province where it now has outlined 11 potential porphyry target areas based on multiple magnetic highs on an 8 kilometer Northeast-Southwest trend and an additional 2-3 kilometer long Northwest-Southeast trend.
