Denarius (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.
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 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.
“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)
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.
Historical Production by Sociedad Guias-Gold (2014–2016)
Channel Sampling by GCM / Argentum JV (May 2018)
Phase 1 Drill Program by Sandspring Resources (Dec 2018–Mar 2019)
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.
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.
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.
