Past exploration confirmed near surface gold-silver deposit open to expansion
Vancouver, British Columbia, July 12, 2021 – Inomin Mines Inc. (TSX.V: MINE) is pleased to announce the filing of a technical report (“Technical Report”), in accordance with National Instrument 43-101 Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects (“NI 43-101“), for the company’s La Gitana Gold-Silver property in Mexico.
- Previous core drilling confirmed La Gitana hosts a significant gold-silver deposit
- Initial 38 holes drilled with grades ranging from 0.25 to 27.8 g/t gold and 5 to 2,330 g/t silver
- Discovery drill hole intersected 133.5 metres (438 feet) of 1.78 g/t gold and 100.7 g/t silver
- Gold-silver mineralization is open to the southeast, at depth, and laterally
- Property prospective for near-surface bulk-tonnage and underground gold-silver deposits
The La Gitana gold-silver property is located in Oaxaca State in southern Mexico. The property is situated within the Oaxaca Gold-Silver Belt, a major northwest trending regional structure hosting several operating precious metals mines and prospects including Gold Resource’s (NYSE: GORO) Arista and Mirador gold-silver mines, and Fortuna Silver’s (TSX: FVI) San Jose gold-silver mine.
La Gitana is an advanced, gold-silver exploration project where exploration, including surface mapping, surface rock sampling, IP-resistivity geophysics, as well as diamond drilling, has delineated a substantial near-surface, low-sulphidation, epithermal gold-silver mineral system. The gold-silver mineralization is open to expansion to the southeast and at depth from drill-tested areas.
Previous drilling programs at La Gitana in 2004 – 2006 by Chesapeake Gold Corp. (TSX.V: CKG), intersected gold-silver mineralization in a core zone 400 to 500 metres long, 50 to 150 metres wide and 50 to 300 metres depth, with grades ranging from 0.25 to 27.8 g/t gold and 5 to 2,330 g/t silver.
Gold and silver mineralization is found in high-grade shoots in northwest trending, sub-vertical structures, and as low-grade disseminations within broad zones of quartz stockworks and breccias. The main structure has been traced for more than 1.4 kilometres up to 300 metres wide and a vertical extension of approximately 400 metres. Structures dip steeply between 70° and 90°. Gold and silver are present as electrum and acanthite within epithermal quartz veins.
A second less developed zone is located approximately 300 metres south of the main zone, as defined by soil geochemistry, channel sampling, and minimal drill testing. Mineralization also appears open laterally: to the east surface veins have not been drill tested; to the west is an untested overburden covered area.
The Technical Report authors believe that sufficient exploration has been completed at La Gitana to confirm the existence of a gold-silver deposit. A two phase exploration program including drilling is recommended at La Gitana to determine the scope of the mineralization and complete a preliminary resource calculation.
Initial communication with the local community has been encouraging. The company looks forward to continuing to build a positive working relationship with all stakeholders.
John Gomez, President of Inomin says, “La Gitana provides the opportunity to define and develop a substantial gold-silver deposit. We look forward to advancing the project to create significant benefits for all stakeholders.”

Inomin Mines Director, L. John Peters P.Geo, a qualified person as defined by NI 43-101, has reviewed and approved the technical information in this news release.
