Case Study – [pdf] MIN_Taxco_v4
A conductive CSAMT feature observed on the Sur de Guerrero survey grid, near the town of Taxco in Guerrero, Mexico, was later confirmed as a discovery by the 2001 IMMSA drilling campaign. This feature is now called the Manto Esperanza Veija Vein. This case study compares the geology identified by IMMSA drilling with the Zonge modeled CSAMT results.
Geologic information from the IMMSA drilling completed in 2000 and 2001 were provided by Sergio Garza Blackaller, Chief Exploration Geologist at Unidad Taxco, IMMSA’s Taxco mine unit. Permission to show these drilling results was provided by Engineer Julian Chavira Quintana, IMMSA Director, and Engineer Oscar Lopez Pineda, the Taxco Manager.
