                                                 2
Localization & Access

The Trinidad project is located 160 kilometers towards the southwest from La Paz, Baja California
Sur and 70 kilometers northwest from San Jose del Cabo.

Locally, the project is located 5 kilometers towards the north from the Sierra Trinidad and within the
proximity of the San Ramon Ranch. The mine site is delimited NE–SW by the San Ramon River.
The UTM coordinates are: E 64,226 / N 2,587,434.

Infrastructure

Counts with excellent dirt and paved roads as well as a tourist developments (hotels, beaches,
spas, nightlife entertainment, restaurants, sightseeing, hospitals, and many more tourist facilities in
the city of Los Cabos where an international airport.

Physiography

The Sierra Trinidad has an elevation of 800 meters close to the Trinidad Hill (Mina Hill) which is one
of the many mountains that have a course NW in the Los Cabos region and that extends south of
the Discontinuidad del Cabo sub province. The porphyry’s system topography (Cerro La Mina) is
not so steep and shows maximum elevations of 550 meters in the center of the main porphyry
system, and 650 meters SE towards the sides as the case of Cerro Cajoncito y 650 meters South
by the Cerro Pelon. Figure 1

Geology

Regional (La Paz - Los Cabos)

Two thirds of the property is constituted by igneous intrusive rocks which are divided in three
regional magmatic events. The antique rocks are constituted by granodioritic and tonalites that
present a moderate to intense deformation which makes the granodioritic rock to have gradual
foliation developments as in the case of the San Antonio – El Triunfo District. The second event is
constituted by granitic intrusions which cut the tonalite and the third event corresponds to the mafic
and ultramafic intrusions with diorite facies.

The granitoid in this region is similar in age and lithology as the Alistos, Caborca, and Sonoban
granitoids found north of the Baja California peninsula which were formed by a magmatic arch that
follows Mexico’s west margin. The intrusive rocks from the La Paz–Los Cabos margin are from the
Mid Cretaceous to the Upper Cretaceous while the granodioritic–tonalites unit presents an age from
70–109 My. Subsequently, the post–batholiths intrusives were emplaced during the Tertiary.
Examples are the quartz–monzonite to dacite which originated the Cu–Mo porphyry system in the
Trinidad area.

The antique rocks of this tectonic block are located within La Paz and Todos Santos, presenting
outcrops of Meta – sedimentary rocks and in lesser proportion Meta–igneous rocks (metamorphic
rocks such as phyllites, slates, micaceous schist with hornblende and sillimanite, muscovite
gneiss, marble and schist and amphibolites gneiss). Figure 2


Local

The area presents a batholith emplacement and post–batholitic igneous rocks, Cretaceous granites,
Tertiary granites, dacite–quartz–monzonites, and quartz–monzonite breccias, as well as a marine–
continental sequence from the Mid Tertiary represented by arenaceous lutites, conglomerates, red
conglomerates and quaternary alluvium

The copper mineralization is hosted within the Tertiary monzonite and the monzonitic breccia which
are intruding the Cretaceous granite.

Within the porphyry is a well defined phyllic, argillic, oxidizing, and silification type alteration zone.
The argillic alteration zone is associated with the fault, oxidizing, and jarosite zones that form the
hanging wall of the system. Towards the outer edge is a poor halo alteration and its propylitization is
not so clear.

The samples taken at the La Tinta stream indicate that the alterations present are mainly silification,
phyllic, and disseminated jarosite with the presence of a strong fracture that appears to control the
mineralization.

Ore Deposits

The Trinidad area was explored during the 1980’s by the Mineral Resource Council (COREMI)
which accounted copper – molybdenum and gold – silver anomalies.

Subsequently, different mining companies have evaluated the zone for gold and copper. These
companies include Techmin S.A. de C.V., Minera Cuicuilco, Anaconda Mining Company, Echo Bay
S.A. de C.V. and recently MIM S.A. de C.V.

These developments have assessed the presence of a geochemical anomaly for Cu–Mo in the area
known as Trinidad.

The owner of the mining concession has provided all the necessary information that concerns the
sample study performed in the La Tinta stream during the year 2000 and 2001 from MIM S.A. de
C.V. which determined that the hypogenic mineralization has a erratic distribution and has abundant
pyrite, chalcopyrite, molybdenite, and a few bornite. The supergenic mineralization presents
chalcopyrite which might be related to the pyrite and chalcopyrite. The sample analysis taken from
the surrounding area of the Mina Hill reported rests of chalcopyrite and values of 1% of copper.

The molybdenum occurs as a fine grain crystal aggregate that associated with quartz in a variable
form and within the associated veinlets of a stockwork system.

Geophysics

A magnetic study defines the La Tinta stream to be placed in a magnetic footwall and surrounded
by a magnetic hanging wall with a strike NE–SW and associated with the granite Cretaceous and
the Tertiary monzonite where possibly the porphyry Cu–Mo might be located.

Geochemics

Approximately 400–500 rock samples and 40 sediment samples were taken and analyzed for 7
elements plus Au. From the reports given it can be concluded that the SW portion of the Trinidad VII
property presents a Cu geochemical anomaly and reports confirm an average of 250 to 1,000 ppm
while several isolated samples report values of 4,000 to 6,000 ppm. In the case of Molybdenum,
there is also a geochemical anomaly towards the south of the Trinidad VII property and in the north
of Trinidad II which report values of 100 ppm of Mo.

For gold only a few samples taken from the mining lot Trinidad VII report values of 25 – 30 ppm of
Au.

In search of

The owner of the Trinidad property is looking for a junior mining company to perform a detailed
exploration program in order to assess its potential.
