Sierra Maestra Copper Belt

A highly prospective area of outcropping copper-gold-molybdenum mineralization has been discovered by Antilles Gold in the Sierra Maestra copper belt in south east Cuba

As a result, two contiguous concessions were delineated, and are now held by MLV:

       –  La Cristina: 3,600ha geological investigation
       –  Vega Grande: 49,000ha reconnaissance

The copper belt is +200km terrain of Cretaceous arc geology intruded by Eocene stocks which are the source of widespread gold, and base-metals mineralization

The El Cobre mine, which is along strike from the concessions, and within the same geological sequence commenced in 1540 – oldest copper mine in the Americas

The concessions incorporate a series of copper-gold-molybdenum zones that display significant footprints of hydrothermal alteration normally associated with potentially large porphyry systems, and show high prospectivity for associated epithermal gold-silver base metal systems

The Sierra Maestra belt is a large (+200km long) east-west trending island arc terrain of Cretaceous age geology that is intruded by Eocene age stocks which are the source for the widespread gold and base-metal mineralization that characterizes the underexplored belt which hosts the large El Cobre copper-gold-base metals deposit.

El Cobre has been exploited since 1540 and is ongoing, making it the oldest copper mine in the Americas.

The three concessions are hosted within the same geological sequence as El Cobre and are located immediately to the south and further along strike to the west of this major mineralized system.
