Evrim acquires the Ardmore Copper Porphyry Property in Arizona
|Vancouver B.C. -- April 16, 2015: Evrim Resources Corp. (TSX.V:EVM) ("Evrim" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has acquired the Ardmore property in Pinal County, Arizona. Ardmore is an early stage exploration target covering 696 hectares of ground prospective for copper-molybdenum porphyry and gold deposits. The project was identified through the Company's generative programs in 2014 and acquired through staking. |
The Ardmore project is favorably situated at the intersection of a major northwest belt of porphyry copper deposits (Ray, Miami/Globe, Superior, Resolution) and a northeast belt of similar style deposits (San Manuel/Kalamazoo, Silver Bell, Lakeshore, Safford, Morenci), approximately 60 kilometres north of Tucson. The project is road accessible with no communities nearby. The Company has also consolidated additional prospective ground in the Ardmore area through a separate agreement with local landowners.
Geology on the property consists of porphyritic Proterozoic monzogranite to granite and Laramide porphyritic dykes with zones of quartz-sericite alteration. Alteration is truncated by Tertiary andesites and conglomerates of an upper detachment plate, which is mapped as a shallow thrust by the United States Geological Survey. Gold mineralization is coincident with a combination of steep and flat lying structures along the thrust front. The propylitic to phyllic alteration may represent the margin of a porphyry system beneath the overriding upper thrust plate.
The project has never been drill tested for concealed porphyry targets and has seen only limited exploration. Mapping and geochemical sampling will be undertaken to determine vectors towards a potential mineral center.
Evrim's President and CEO, Paddy Nicol, commented, "The Ardmore project represents an excellent opportunity for Evrim's exploration partners to test an underexplored project in an area with significant mining history. In addition, consolidating prospective ground adjacent to Ardmore will allow for more effective exploration of the region. The acquisition of Ardmore is Evrim's first project outside of Mexico and was generated using the Company's expertise on the Mexican side of the Laramide porphyry belt."
