Denarius Metals






Advancing Projects In High Grade Mining Districts


Denarius Metals (TSX-V:DSLV) is a Canadian-listed public company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, development and eventual operation of mining projects in high-grade districts, with its principal focus on the Lomero Project in Spain and the Guia Antigua Project in Colombia. The Company also owns the Zancudo Project in Colombia which is currently being explored by IAMGOLD Corp. pursuant to an option agreement for the exploration and potential purchase of an interest in the project.




The opportunity to invest in an international mining portfolio with exposure ranging from exploration to near-term production of multi-metal assets offering leverage across multiple markets.




The company assets are located in close proximity to massively productive operations with robust infrastructure in place to help quickly advance projects in Colombia.




The team is encouraged by the historically productive mining districts the mine sites occupy; in particular, the high grade mining districts of Titiribi and Segovia located in Colombia.






Exploration programs on both projects have returned high grade mineralization consistent with the rich history of the properties as well as the prolific neighboring deposits.







Lomero-Poyatos Project


The Lomero-Poyatos deposit is located in the north-east part of the Spanish/Portuguese Iberian Pyrite Belt in the Huelva Province of Southern Spain.






Iberian Pyrite Belt, Spain

  • The Lomero-Poyatos deposit is located in the north-east part of the Spanish/Portuguese Iberian Pyrite Belt in the Huelva Province of Southern Spain
  • The Lomero-Poyatos deposit site is well serviced by water, power and paved highways to Seville, Huelva, Aracena
  • Multiple high capacity processing facilities in close proximity as well as shipping access at Huelva Port
  • Several surrounding nearby villages, which represent potential sources of labour, accommodation, and general services





Iberian Pyrite Belt

The Lomero-Poyatos deposit is located in the north-east part of the Spanish/Portuguese (Iberian) pyrite belt which extends about 230 km between Seville in the east (in southern Spain) and the Atlantic coast near Lisbon in the west (in Portugal).  The Lomero-Poyatos deposit is located on the northern margin of the pyrite belt.

The Iberian Pyrite Belt is the largest concentration of massive sulphides in the world.



The Lomero-Poyatos deposit has an average ENE (075°) strike and dips about 35°N. At the surface there are two separate mineral deposits: Lomero (east) and Poyatos (west) that combine to form a single deposit at depth.




Pyrite is the predominant sulphide, but the sulphide minerals of greatest economic importance are sphalerite, chalcopyrite, tetrahedrite and galena. The massive sulphide and semi-massive sulphide zones at Lomero-Poyatos are significantly enriched in gold.  In terms of gold content, the Lomero-Poyatos deposit has the highest gold grades in the IPB with values of 2.0 m at 14.1 g/t Au and 0.55 m at 16.84 g/t Au being returned from CMR/Newmont drill holes in 2007. There is copper-enrichment in the central part of the mine, with some zinc-lead-gold enrichment towards the eastern and western margins of the deposit.






Historical Mineral Resource Estimate

“Potential for a significant increase in resources as the deposit was open along strike and down dip, and a gravity survey had identified anomalies at depth.” (Dolbear 2012)





Segovia Mining District, Colombia


  • The Guia Antigua Project is a mining license agreement for the eastern part of Gran Colombia’s mining title RPP-140
  • Gran Colombia Gold Corp. carries out mining, processing and production of gold from their flagship Segovia operations El Silencio, Providencia and Sandra K mines on the adjacent, western part of the mining title RPP-140
  • These high-grade mines have been in continuous operation for over 150 years and over that time have produced roughly 5 million ounces of gold


Segovia Mining District, Colombia

Guia Antigua Project


The Guia Antigua Project is on the adjacent property of a complex
highly productive vein system. 2018 drill program identified 3 new veins and excellent grades including a high mineralized intercept of 3,268 g/t Ag, 8.57 g/t Au across a 1.2m drill length.





Vein System Potential

  • 2018 drill program identified 3 new veins and excellent grades including a high mineralized intercept of 3,268 g/t Ag, 8.57 g/t Au across a 1.2m drill length
  • The Guia Antigua vein is the current focus of the Guia Antigua Project which is similar in geology, structure, vein style and mineralogy to the veins of the High Grade Segovia Operations
  • Early exploration indicates very strong potential for further discoveries in the area




Production History & Completed Exploration


Historical Production by Sociedad Guias-Gold (2014–2016)

  • The Guia Antigua mine has historical production totals of 78,558 oz silver and 1,174 oz gold from 6,034 tonnes of ore with an average head grade of 404.90 g/t Ag and 6.05 g/t Au from 2014-2016




 Channel Sampling by GCM / Argentum JV (May 2018)

  • Initial exploration of the Guia Antigua Project and the Guia
    Antigua mine has been carried out by rock channel sampling and assay for gold and silver. Channel sampling returned average grades of 7.643 g/t Au and 335.1 g/t Ag over 1.66m. Sample grade ranges 0.012 to 133.7 g/t Au and <0.3 to 10,381.0 g/t Ag




 Phase 1 Drill Program by Sandspring Resources (Dec 2018–Mar 2019)

  • The first phase of the drill program tested eleven diamond drill
    holes totaling approximately 1,753.9m and was focused on
    the area to the west of the mine
  • A mineralized intercept in DDH GA-ES-001 returned a 1.2m
    drill length interval grading 8.57 g/t Au and 3,298 g/t Ag from 164.5m to 165.7m drill depth



Titibirí Mining District, Colombia


Zancudo Project


The property includes the historically productive Independencia Mine. Production dating back to 1793 of 1.5 Mozs to 2.0 Mozs of gold equivalent on Zancudo property.





Titibirí Mining District, Colombia



The Zancudo Project is located in the Titiribí mining district of Antioquia, about 27 km south of Medellin.


  • The property includes the historically productive Independencia Mine
  • Total production from the Titiribí district has been estimated at between 48,230 kg and 64,300 kg (1.5 to 2.0 Moz) of Gold Equivalent
  • Sitting Close to GoldMining’s Titiribí Project (TSX:GOLD)
    • M&I resource 285.8 Mt at 0.50 g/t Au (4.63 Moz), 0.10% Cu (654 Mlb) or 0.68 g/t AuEq (6.20 Moz)
    • Inferred resource 207.9 Mt at 0.49 g/t Au (3.25 Moz), 0.02% Cu (77.9 Mlb) or 0.51 g/t AuEq (3.44 Moz)
  • Option Agreement in place with IAMGOLD for further mineral exploration



Titibirí Mining District

  • The Zancudo deposit is located on the western side of the Central Cordillera of the Colombian Andes
  • The deposit lies within the Romeral terrane, covered by continental sediments comprising gray to green colored conglomerates, sandstones, shales, and coal seams
  • Gold mineralization occurs in two zones at El Zancudo the Upper Zone and the lower zone
  • Mineralization in the upper zone occurs in flat-lying veins and disseminations in conglomerates and sandstones
  • Mineralization in the lower zone is hosted by N-S striking, steeply dipping veins
  • The minerals, in order of abundance, are pyrite, galena, arsenopyrite, sphalerite, silver-sulfosalts, bournonite, boulangerite and jamesonite, native gold and native silver




Timeline & Mineral Exploration Option Agreement



Option Agreement With IAMGOLD:


First Option:


IAMGOLD has the Option to acquire 65% interest in Zancudo by incurring an aggregate of US$10 million of mineral exploration over a six-year period.


Second Option:


IAMGOLD has a second option to acquire a further 5% undivided interest, for an aggregate 70% undivided interest in Zancudo, by completing a feasibility study within three years after exercising the First Option.


Upon exercise of the First Option or the Second Option, the parties will form a joint venture to hold Zancudo, to advance the exploration and, if feasible, to advance the development and mining of any commercially exploitable ore body.
