Del Toro is located in the Chalchihuites silver mining district in the north-western part of Mexico, at the border zone between the physiographic provinces of Sierra Madre Occidental and Mesa Central. The mineralization at Del Toro occurs as an assemblage of metasomatic and hydrothermal mineral deposits with high-grade silver content including veins, replacement concentrations, stockworks and breccia zones.
Exploration at Del Toro has been primarily focused on the investigation of two areas: the San Juan and Perseverancia areas within the projects holdings. Both the San Juan and Perseverancia were historic mines; the Perseverancia was mined for high grade silver rich sulphide ore and the San Juan is believed to be the oldest mine in the district, possibly dating back 500 years.
More recently, the San Nicolas and Dolores areas have also been receiving attention. The San Nicolas and Dolores are two new areas of interest that are currently being defined by drilling. They consist of breccia chimney and vein deposits. Preliminary investigations for these two areas include underground development for both mapping and channel sampling to determine the size and quality of mineral deposits.
