David O’Brien’s Corporate Profile “Sonoro Metals Corp.”






An associate of mine, Branden Haynes, steered me over to Sonoro Metals Corp. (SMO: TSX-V)’s Ken MacLeod, Pres. & CEO, to hear the stories of their Mexican silver and gold properties, and I can see why he was motivated to do so.



While Ken gave me the overview for my intended PDAC wrap-up article, we were joined by some ‘industry heavyweights’ Bob Termuende and Yale Simpson (the latter of Exeter Resource Corp. (XRC: TSX-V XRA: AMEX EXB: FSE)) who both expressed enthusiasm for the strategy being employed by the management team of Sonoro, especially at the 100%-owned Chipriona project in eastern Sonoro State, Mexico, a mining-friendly country your author has now had the pleasure of covering many opportunities within. (Great Panther Silver Ltd. (GPR: TSX, GPL: NYSE MKT), MAG Silver Corp. (MAG: TSX, MVG: NYSE.A)…).



The 420 Ha property, with a mineralized zone of 1,000m x 400m, is about 300 km east of Hermosillo in the Mohave Megashear region of the Sierra Madre Gold Belt, and lies adjacent to Agnico Eagle Mines Ltd. (AEM: NYSE, AEM: TSX)’s 800K oz. gold La India Mine and only 15Km NW of Alamos Gold Inc. (AGI: TSX, AGI: NYSE MKT)’s 2M oz gold Mulatos Mine… a great trend to be within.



A good capital structure, with only 22.2M shares, and 35.8M F/D, bodes well for the future accretive value to shareholders.



Seven years ago your author first met MacLeod who was Pres & CEO of Western GeoPower, which was ultimately sold to RAM Power Corp. (RPG: TSX) for $50M in 2009. Another person should be mentioned in this brief intro: Melvin Herdrick, Exploration Manager, the Mexican-based geo. responsible for the technical discoveries of Pediment Gold Corp., which was sold to Argonaut Gold Inc. (AR: TSX) for $167M in 2011.



A second Mexican property is San Marcial, which we will cover in the future;… and new property acquisitions in the Tintina Gold Belt in Alaska in a Joint Venture with Northern Empire Resources Corp. (NM: TSX-V) formerly Prosperity Goldfields Corp.… more later.


In the meantime, the People, the ‘Locations, Locations, Locations’, and the Minerals Assets in both countries, are a great start to ‘our Due Diligence’ on SMO, readers.
