Taviche is an attractive silver-gold-bearing quartz vein with typical epithermal textures and existing historic (Spanish and subsequent) underground workings. The vein can be traced for over 1.5 kilometres. Five hundred metres of continuous underground workings can be seen in one level. A second deeper level is known to have a 100 metres length. The laterally continuous vein varies in thickness from 1-5 metres but appears to average 2 metres and is sub vertical. Epithermal textures include open space fillings, bladed veining and megacrystic carbonate replacement, all significant textures known in gold-silver epithermal deposits. There are no records of the grades from the vein system but one speculates that for the amount of labour and extraction on the vein, grades must have been significant. The Company plans on conducting an extensive underground re-sampling program to determine the average grade before considering a drill program. The access is excellent, less than 1 kilometre from paved road and approximately 1.5 hours drive from the capital of Oaxaca.
