El Cobre Property

Sierra Target

The Sierra Target is located in the central portion of the El Cobre Property west of the town of Batacosa. Two historic (1950s) workings have been located on top of Miocene volcanic units giving over 700 meters of relief above the Montoso porphyry systems exposures located to the east.

The initial 2014 Sierra program has commenced including mapping, trenching and channel sampling of the young volcanic breccia complex.
