Caza is a newly formed gold exploration company focused on discovering gold deposits in Mexico that have the potential to become large tonnage and/or high grade gold mines. The Company currently holds two attractive gold exploration projects in Chihuahua, Mexico. Other property acquisitions are planned to accelerate Caza's growth.
Caza's management team has extensive exploration experience with both major mining and junior exploration companies, many contacts in the Mexican mining sector and a comprehensive proprietary property database compiled from two decades of working in Mexico. Our in-country technical expertise gives Caza a competitive edge for the acquisition and exploration of prospective properties within high priority mineralized districts. In addition, we know the culture and speak the language. Caza has ongoing research and reconnaissance efforts in other areas of Mexico and Latin America and expects new acquisitions in the coming months.
Because the prolific production history of Mexico was focused on higher grade, oxidized gold-silver vein ores, and because Mexico was effectively closed to modern exploration for the better part of 30 years (1961 to 1992) due to the restriction on foreign ownership of mining properties, there remains excellent potential to discover world class, lower grade, bulk mineable gold deposits.
Mexico Acquisition Strategy
Caza is focused on acquiring high quality projects with the potential to host million plus ounce gold deposits. Preference will be placed on more advanced projects but all projects of merit will be carefully reviewed and evaluated. Caza is confident of exciting acquisition announcements in the remainder of 2010 and in 2011.
There are four mineral belts in Mexico that are most prospective for bulk mineable gold deposits based on four ore models that are most representative of the gold mines in each belt:
A) Sonora-Mojave Mega-Shear Gold Belt – Mesothermal gold deposits occur as quartz-pyrite disseminations, stock-works and veins related to low angle faults in PreCambrian metamorphic and granitic rocks proximal to the Sonora-Mojave Mega-shear (e.g. La Herradura and El Chanate Mines).
B) Sierra Madre Occidental Gold-Silver Belt – Epithermal gold-silver deposits occur as quartz-silicate-carbonate-sulfide veins, stock-works and breccias related to high angle faults in Tertiary volcanic rocks proximal to high level, sub-volcanic intrusions (e.g. Mulatos and Dolores Mines).
C) Mesa Central Base Metal-Silver-Gold Belt – Intrusion-related polymetallic-silver-gold deposits occur as sulfide-quartz-carbonate breccia pipes, mantos and skarns within Cretaceous clastic and carbonate sedimentary rocks distal or proximal to intermediate or high level Tertiary intrusions (e.g. Penasquito and Camino Rojo Mines).
D) Guerrero Gold Belt – Intrusion-related gold-polymetallic deposits occur as magnetite-hematite-sulfide skarns, replacements, and stock-works in Cretaceous carbonate rocks proximal to intermediate level Tertiary intrusions (e.g. Nukay and Los Filos Mines).
