San Luis del Cordero - Drilling Intercepts
Five diamond drilling programs were carried out in the district in the past 16 years, 2000 to 2016, totalling 62 holes and about 16,400 metres.

In 2000 Apex Silver drilled 3 diamond drill holes under the Santa Rosa Mine.

In 2008 Minera Hochshild Mexico drilled 6 diamond drill holes, two under the Santa Rosa Mine, three holes in the India Bonita vein area and one hole in the NE Veta structure.

In 2010-2011 Prospero Silver Corp drilled 19 diamond drill holes in two programs, including the Santa Rosa East Skarn zone and in the Canal Target area.

In 2013-2014, Silver Standard Resources Inc. drilled 15 diamond drill holes in various locations on the property.

In 2016, Golden Minerals Company drilled 19 diamond drill holes exclusively on the Santa Rosa Vein area, with the intention of identifying just very high grade ore for trucking to their Velardeņa mill operations.

Drilling data from 2000 to 2014 were used for the resource estimation (Hodson, 2014).

In spite of these five varied drilling campaigns, there are still targets on the property which have not yet been drilled.
