About the Cristinas Project

The 685-hectare Cristinas Project is in northeastern Chihuahua state, Mexico, approximately 2 hours by car from Chihuahua City. The Cristinas Project includes a historic copper mine that operated in the 1950’s on shallow copper oxide mineralization.

The project features a >1,250 m long zone of copper mineralization traced through rock chips on surface and 12 historical (2014) drill holes. The copper mineralization is open along strike and at depth with significant expansion potential highlighted by limited geophysical surveys. Drilling results include intercepts of 4.3 m true width grading 3.2% copper and 3.7 m true width of 3.0% copper. The deepest holes penetrated only 80 m below the surface. The Company plans to begin drilling the project in June 2024.

About the Princeton Project

The Princeton Project is an 11,500-hectare property located south of the town of Princeton British Columbia and adjacent to Hudbay’s Copper Mountain Mine. Extensive historical datasets compiled by the Quetzal include drilling, geochemical, and geophysical surveys. 

Quetzal recently reprocessed existing geophysical data (magnetic and IP surveys) collected between 2020 and 2022. The work refined three existing targets: Bud South, Knob Hill, and Aura. In addition, it identified a new, previously unidentified target called Contact. 

The targets demonstrate anomalous copper and gold in soils coincident with multi-parameter magnetic and IP geophysical anomalies. Previous operators drilled only one target, Bud South, in 1987. The previous drilling completed one hole into the very top of the geophysical anomaly. It encountered 10.5 m at 0.18% copper and 0.34 g/t gold. The core log describes potassic alteration with mineralization (magnetite, K-feldspar, pyrite, epidote, and chalcopyrite). The other copper porphyry targets on the project remain undrilled.
