Exploring the Sierra Madre of Mexico for gold and base metals.
Minera Camargo S.A de C.V ("Camargo"), incorporated in 1999, is a private Mexican mineral exploration company. Between 2000 and 2004, we ran several regional field exploration programs for Anglo American in the carbonate-hosted districts of northeastern Mexico for zinc, in Baja California for copper, and in the southern Mexico iron belt between Jalisco and Guerrero for copper and gold. Starting in 2005, we established Marlin Gold Mining Ltd.'s (TSX-V:MLN) land position in the Sinaloa Gold Belt centered on the operating Trinidad Mine. Most of our current clients work in the junior mineral exploration sector, and trade on the TSX Venture exchange. Specifically, we acquired and advanced the Jalisco VMS Project for Zinco Mining Corporation (TSX-V:ZIM), and made several acquisitions for Guerrero Exploration Inc. (TSX-V:GEX) in 2011. In 2015, we completed the acquisition of the Violin Project in Coaxtlahuacan Guerrero for Minera GS S.A. de C.V. The principals of Minera Camargo are Michelle Robinson, MASc., P.Eng, and Sr. Jose Vargas Gaytan.
Ms. Robinson worked for several major metal mining companies in the 1990’s, including Noranda, Cominco (now Teck), Inco (now Vale), Westmin Resources Ltd. (now Nyrstar), Anglo American (Vancouver exploration group), and Hudbay Minerals (Flin Flon, Manitoba). In 1998 she moved to Mexico and domiciled several junior mineral explorers. A few of these participants include: Canamera Geological, Oro Gold Resources (now Marlin Gold Mining Ltd.), La Plata Gold (now Alphamin Resources Corp.) and Seafield Mineral Resources. Prior to moving to Mexico, she authored technical papers on volcanogenic massive sulfide deposits and carbonate hosted lead zinc deposits, and was the recipient of several awards. She is a member of working groups organised by the Mexican Mining Chamber (CAMIMEX), speaks fluent Spanish and English, and is a Qualified Person as defined by NI 43-101.
Mr. Vargas started working in mining and construction from a young age. Prior to 1992 he worked as an underground miner for Luismin at several mines in San Dimas, Durango and in Guerrero State. In 1992, Mexico's mining sector was opened to foreign investors, and Mr. Vargas started working with several Canadian junior mineral exploration companies, mainly as a prospector. He managed operations for Minera Camargo on the Durango highway project, and participated in the construction of other highways in Sinaloa prior to that. He is well known throughout the western and southern Sierra Madre. Mr. Vargas organizes our work crews and handles logistics for exploration, mining and construction projects.
