Cecilia Gold Project
The drill permitted Cecilia project is located 40 km southwest of the Mexico-U.S.A. border town of Agua Prieta in Sonora, Mexico and is easily accessed by paved highway and dirt roads. The project is 6,897 ha in size and is located 48 km from the world-class open-pit Cananea porphyry copper mine. Deposit analogs for Cecilia include the La Pitarrilla deposit containing 526 million oz Ag (Measured + Indicated, SSRI website) and Fresnillo’s San Julian silver mine containing over 230 million oz Ag, both located in Durango, Mexico.
The Peñoles Project includes two historic silver mines (Jesus Maria and San Rafael), an oxide gold prospect (referred to as El Capitan) located in the historic Peñoles Mining District of Durango, Mexico. The Peñoles Project is host to multiple mineralized vein systems, fault zone structures, poly-metallic skarns, and silicified low-temperature gold-rich volcaniclastics. Approximately 86 diamond drill holes totalling more than 11,550 metres have now been completed at the Project. Drilling to date on the Peñoles property has defined significant intervals of near-surface silver mineralization (with associated gold, lead and zinc values) at Jesus Maria, and wide intervals of near-surface gold mineralization (with low silver values) at El Capitan that could potentially be amenable to open-pit extraction methods.
Tajitos Gold Project
The 61 km² Tajitos Gold Project is located in the heart of the Sonora-Mojave Megashear Gold Belt. The Project was acquired by Riverside from a private owner and is owned 100% with no underlying royalties. Since acquiring the property, Riverside has completed multiple surface and underground sampling and mapping programs and has staked additional ground (Tejo & Cortez claims) to expand the land package. Previous partner Centerra Gold completed further geophysics and a first round of drilling that included 1,832 metres of core across 8 drill holes at Tajitos.
The Clemente Project is within close proximity to five gold-silver mines in the region, including the Cerro Colorado Mine only 7 km to the SE. Clemente is centered on the Sonora-Mojave Megashear, a controlling rich belt of orogenic and intrusion related gold and silver deposits approximately 700 km long. The Project has exceptional infrastructure with power, water and road access making the targets easily accessible and cost effective for future drill testing.
Thor Copper Project
The Thor Copper Project is located within the Arizona - Sonora Copper Mining Belt, which is host to over 40 major Cu-Mo porphyry deposits, including in Mexico the world-class, Cananea and La Caridad copper mines currently being operated by Grupo Mexico. The Thor property was acquired for its extensive color and associated geochemical anomalies, interpreted by Riverside to represent the basal portions of an eroded porphyry-related lithocap making it the prime target for a new significant copper discovery. This part of Sonora is rich in copper potential and has had extensional tectonics that provide a potential for shallow, open pit discoveries under pediment that could possibly be unrecognized due to post-mineral faulting as Riverside’s President, John-Mark Staude, described in his 1995 PhD doctorate thesis on the mineralization in Sonora, Mexico.
Ariel Copper-Gold Project
Riverside Resources won the right to stake the Ariel project through the claims lottery process and subsequently staked and acquired the project in northern Sonora, Mexico.
The Ariel Project is strategically located 30 km ESE of the world-class La Caridad Cu-Mo porphyry mine (1,800 Mt @ 0.45% Cu, 0.02% Mo), and 24 km SE of the Los Alisos Cu porphyry prospect. To the best of RRI’s knowledge, the area has not been drill tested previously and represents a new grass-roots target.
The Ariel property was staked by Riverside in late 2015 and developed out of a strong reconnaissance prospecting program in the area. Access to the Property is good with 30 km on dirt roads from paved highways where power grid and other infrastructure are in place servicing the nearby La Caridad mine.
La Silla Gold-Silver Project
The La Silla epithermal Au-Ag project is similar to the San Dimas (Primero Mining Corp.) and El Gallo (McEwen Mining) vein systems being mined to the south and north of La Silla. The project is located 60 kms northeast of Mazatlan with paved and dirt road access to the 20 km square property. The project is located in the Ollitas Mining District, Municipality of San Ignacio, State of Sinaloa, Mexico. The closest population and commercial center to the property is the town of San Ignacio, with good infrastructure. From San Ignacio, which lies about 20 km north-northwest of the core of the property, the property’s main prospects are accessible by following a rough bush track to the southeast to the hamlet of La Morita and then north.
Sugarloaf Peak Gold Project (Sold to Croesus Gold Corp)
Acquired in 2008, the Sugarloaf Peak Project has over 70 drill holes, deep IP (Titan-24 survey), aeromagnetics, and extensive mapping and sampling across the 24 km² property. The central target area includes a near surface, large low-grade gold system that could be related laterally or overtop of a porphyry copper system. Riverside completed exploration and drilling that was followed by $3M in exploration and geophysics work completed during 2011-2012 by a former partner. Croesus Gold Corp. has subsequently acquired a 100% interest by making staged cash and share payments to Riverside and will now carry the project forward.
Croesus Gold Corp. is a private company that plans to complete a go-public transaction in 2019. Riverside maintains solid exposure to partner or project success through its ownership of 3,000,000 Croesus shares and 2% NSR on the Sugarloaf Peak Project.
