Mine - Cuchara-Oscar

San Ramon Mine Mirasol Mine Cuchara-Oscar Mine

The Cuchara-Oscar Mine is the fourth underground silver mine taken from discovery to production at the Royal Mines of Zacualpan Silver District by the IMPACT team. Cuchara-Oscar encompasses a corridor of high grade silver veins located 2.5 kilometers east of the Guadalupe Production Centre. Mining is currently on the Marqueza, Santa Lucia and Oscar Veins with plans to expand production to other veins in the system including the Condesa, Resguardo and Maria de Jesus Veins..

The mine has three entrances: the Oscar and Pardo Mine entrances to access the upper levels of the veins and the Cuchara Mine entrance which provides access to a historic mine ramp that extends to a depth of 240 meters below surface and provides low cost access to lower levels of the mine complex.

History


The Cuchara Mine Complex is one of many historic mining camps located within IMPACT's extensive land holdings in the Royal Mines of Zacualpan Silver District. The first record of mining and processing in the Cuchara area dates back to 1597. The veins currently being mined and explored are extensions of those historic veins as well as new discoveries resulting from systematic field work in the area by IMPACT technical personnel.

Exploration


IMPACT's exploration team first intersected high grade silver veins at the Cuchara-Oscar in 2011 and at the Santa Lucia zone in 2009. Exploration is continuing on extensions to Cuchara area veins to the north, south and southwest.
