Almaden Minerals Ltd. owns 100% of the Tuligtic project in Puebla State, Mexico. Tuligtic covers the Ixtaca Gold-Silver Deposit, which was discovered by Almaden in 2010.
The Ixtaca Deposit currently hosts a proven and probable reserve of 65.1 million tonnes grading 0.62 g/t Gold and 37.7 g/t Silver or 1.29 million ounces of Gold and 78.8 million ounces of Silver.
In May 2017, Almaden filed a Preliminary Feasibility Study (PFS) of the Ixtaca deposit, which estimates an economically robust project generating an after-tax IRR of 41% using US$1250/oz Gold and US$18/oz Silver prices. The project would produce a total of 1,043,000 ounces of gold and 70.9 million ounces of silver over a 14-year mine life. Read more about the Ixtaca Deposit here +
This PFS demonstrates that Ixtaca is one of Mexico’s premier precious metals deposits. Our focus is now on advancing project engineering in a careful and deliberate manner and concurrently optimizing project design. In addition, significant exploration potential remains at Ixtaca and we intend to continue to explore the concession.
With two generations of experience, Almaden’s dedicated management and exploration team has over 50 years of entrepreneurship and a proven record of discovery. Team discoveries include the Santa Fe Gold Deposit, the Apex Germanium-Gallium Deposit, the Nevada Scheelite Extension, the Trinidad Gold Mine, the Caballo Blanco Deposit, and the Ixtaca Deposit.
Almaden believes that successful exploration should make a positive social difference. By educating and employing local people and financing projects that are important to them, Almaden is committed to improving the quality of life in the communities we work with and within.
