Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada (September 22, 2020) – Global Li-Ion Graphite Corp. (“Global Li-Ion” or, the “Company”) (CSE: LION) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a letter agreement with Grupo Minero Diflor S.A. de C.V. a private Mexican Company to acquire a 100% interest in the MVZ Silver-Gold Mine Property in Chihuahua Mexico.
The 1200 hectare Property hosts 3 past producing silver-gold deposits, El Moro, La Virginia and La Zorra (MVZ Property). The Property is situated within Grupo Minero Diflor’s Pajarito Project which covers a 10 X 25 km, fault-bounded exposure of older sediments and intrusives surrounded by voluminous younger post-mineral rhyolites. The Pajarito Project covers a large mineral system with widespread epithermal mineralization and multiple examples of porphyry-style potassic and propylitic alteration. The older rocks are broadly altered and host artisanal mines. In the silver dominant MVZ triangle, breccia and intense shear-hosted sulfide mineralization has silver values up to +1,000 grams per tonne silver, multiple percentages of lead and zinc with gold credits.
The MVZ Mine Property, based on aero magnetics and pegmatitic quartz on a dump, is interpreted to be located over an intrusive. The La Zorra mine has open stopes up to 10 meters high. The mine has essentially no dump and mined material was shipped directly by truck to the smelter. There also are nearby gold prospects on the concession reporting multi-gram gold assays. Diflor is the first to conduct modern sampling and geological mapping but the Project remains unexplored by modern geophysical surveying, drilling or other modern exploration and prospecting programs.
The Property is located in the south west of Mexico’s Chihuahua state adjacent to Sinaloa and within the prolific Sierra Madre Gold-Silver Belt which hosts numerous multi million-ounce gold-silver deposits. The Sierra Madre Belt is prolific country for silver-gold explorers. In this portion of the Belt are the following past and present producers. The MVZ Mine Property is located 60km south of the Gold Corp’s past producing 1.75M ounce El Suazal Gold Mine, is located 85 KM north of McEwen Mining Inc., Fenix Project (El Gallo) which reports a measured and indicated resource of 32.3 M oz of Silver. and is 100 km northwest of historic Guadalaupe y Calvo mine which produced 2 M oz gold and 35 M oz silver.
The property is road accessible to the Pacific port of Los Mochis located 125km to the west and which has air, rail and Interstate service.
President John Roozendaal states “The Property presents an exciting opportunity for the Company. It is within the World-Famous Sierra Madre Gold Belt of Mexico and therefore within the North American trading zone. The property itself has had limited exploration and much of the exposure to historical prospecting activity was impeded by a thin cover of soil and rock leaving open the potential for undiscovered silver-gold mineralization near surface. With modern “state of the art” mineral exploration technologies, methods and advances in the geological knowledge of these types of mineral systems we are looking forward to discovering the full potential of the mineral rich area.
The macro outlook for both Silver and Gold remains incredibly positive. Silver is of particular interest to LION given both its historic demand as a store of value but also as a significant material in the manufacture of many Green technologies and in particular the collection of solar energy through panels. Silver is the most electrically conductive metal in addition to its other important properties.
Mexico has long been considered a premier producer of silver to the world and is one of the most attractive destinations for mineral exploration and mining finance today. Its location within the North American trading region and proximity to the west coast of Mexico with its deep-water ports for shipping, electrical power and transportation infrastructure are also important considerations for acquisition of the Property.
