Rio Tinto Option El Paste Concession
The El Paste Concession covers a 115 km2 area of highly prospective geology 75 km southwest of Siuna. An initial stream sediment sampling program completed in 2015 generated significant gold anomalies requiring follow-up work. A total of 81 samples were collected and analysed for gold and 31 elements. Two kilometre-scale anomalies were generated including; 1) a broad western area defined by 17 samples anomalous in gold and several pathfinder elements outlining a target area 6.0km by 1.0-1.5 km and 2) a second anomaly estimated to be approximately 4.0km by 3.0km on the eastern edge of the sampled area highlighted by the highest gold value (680 ppb Au) returned in the survey.
