Testing new concepts in a world class gold and silver province.

The mining friendly state of Santa Cruz is one of the most prolific gold provinces in South America. Since ground was first broken two decades at AngloGold Ashanti’s Cerro Vanguardia mine, the province has yielded multiple ‘company making’ discoveries that have created significant value for the investors who supported them.

Noteworthy examples include Andean Resources and Extorre Resources who were acquired for $4.73 billion and $430 million respectively, in today’s Australian dollar terms, after making major gold and silver discoveries at Cerro Negro and Cerro Moro.

E2 Metals controls a unique mix of highly prospective but underexplored ground along trend from the largest gold districts in Santa Cruz. Key highlights include:

  • Conserrat – the western continuation of the prolific Cerro Vanguardia vein field where in excess of 11 million (gold equivalent) ounces have been mined.
  • Sierra Morena – several kilometres of untested gold and silver veins within trucking distance of Pan American Silver’s COSE development project
  • Corona – strategic landholding 30 kilometres south of the Cerro Negro vein district with in excess of 9 million gold equivalent ounces of total endowment. Prioritised on similarities to Goldcorp’s’ recent Silica Cap discovery.
  • Angostura – targeting the continuation of the Sierra Blanca and Pinguino vein systems under cover. Multiple coherent geophysical targets.
