Eastern Mexico Cluster

A Special Area of Focus

“Almadex’s prospecting programs, proprietary database and proven technical abilities continue to yield results. We look forward to adding to our portfolio and exploring recent acquisitions.”

J.D. Poliquin,
Chairman of Almadex

In 1994 Almadex’s predecessor, Almaden Minerals, recognized Eastern Mexico as an unexplored terrain with exceptional mineral potential. The area exhibits a similar geology to gold-rich Eastern Nevada and hosts several exceptional deposits including the Pachuca Mine.

For two decades, Almaden’s extensive exploration programs within Eastern Mexico have built an unrivalled geological database of the area. By compiling and analysing historical prospects, geological and geophysical data, and Aster satellite imagery, Almaden identified many new targets from the USA border to Guatemala, which have been visited and evaluated with helicopter-supported prospecting and fieldwork.

From this grassroots exploration, Almaden’s discoveries in Eastern Mexico include the Ixtaca Gold-Silver Deposit, the Caballo Blanco Gold Deposit, and El Cobre Gold-Copper Project.

Almadex maintains a portfolio of Eastern Mexican projects at various stages of development. These 100% owned projects range from alteration zones that require target definition through drill ready projects with well-defined targets.

Listed below are brief descriptions of projects within the area. Also, please visit our Mexican Portfolio + for information on Almadex’s exploration across Mexico.

Nueva Espana

Gold / Silver | Puebla State, Mexico

Nueva Espana is 100% Almadex-owned and acquired by staking. The property covers an area of clay alteration silicification and veining developed in volcanic and carbonate rocks. The alteration is interpreted to represent a low-sulphidation vein system. There are numerous historic pits and shallow workings. Past work includes mapping, rock, soil and stream sediment sampling, geophysics.
