It is located 16 miles from the historical Tayoltita, which produced more than 11 million ounces (Moz) of gold and 582Moz of silver.
In a press statement, Regency Silver said: “The El Tablon Claims are in a similar geological environment, characterised by the presence of productive rocks of the Lower Volcanic Complex, to which subvolcanic felsic rock bodies with stockworks and gold dissemination are found.
“In addition, the canyons around El Tablon expose many other mineralised zones, and works can be found in the neighbouring mines of the Ventanas, Mala Noche, and San Cayetano projects.”
Regency Silver said the El Tablon Claims hold potential for both high-grade silver veins and bulk mineable high volume-low grade polymetallic mineralisation.
