Aztec secures land holdings near Cervantes gold property in Mexico

Aztec Minerals Corp. significantly expanded its holdings at the Cervantes gold project in Sonora, Mexico, after it was awarded two concessions covering about 3,149 hectares adjacent to the property.

As a result, the company's land position at Cervantes, which is currently under option from Kootenay Silver Inc., now totals 3,649 hectares.

The new concessions cover six historical prospects and/or gossan zones that represent high-priority porphyry-type targets, the company said in a March 26 release.

Aztec plans to map and sample these areas this year after completing a phase-one drilling program at Cervantes.

In addition, the company noted that is developing exploration plans for the Tombstone property in Arizona. Aztec in December 2017 agreed to acquire a 75% interest in the project from Baroyeca Gold & Silver Inc.
