The Incamayo Norte property, formerly known as the Cerro Gordo Property, is located 100 kilometers west of the city of Salta, in the Sierra de Cachi portion of the Nevados de Palermo Mountain Range. The Incamayo Norte property is dominated by the northeast striking, southeast dipping fault zone which cuts the turbiditic argillite, siltstone and sandstones that comprise the property. This structural zone controls the hydrothermal system that formed the Incamayo deposit. Areas of intense iron oxidation, silification and brecciation host the high-sulphidation epithermal system, which includes gold, silver, copper and tellurium ores, as well as evidence of zinc, lead and tin. Drilling carried out by Brigadeer in 2011 uncovered the following mineralized zones:

  • 8.2 metres of 2.25 gpt gold and 7.5 gpt silver from surface
  • 8.1 metres of 0.6 gpt gold, from surface
  • 7.6 metres of 1.14 gpt gold, 14.7 gpt silver and 0.56 % copper
  • 3.6 metres of 0.69 gpt gold, 25.4 gpt silver and 1.05 % copper
  • 10 metres of 0.8 gpt gold, 7.9 gpt silver and 0.12 % zinc
  • 112 metres of 6.6 gpt silver, 0.30 % zinc and 0.08 % lead

The Incamayo Norte property is jointly owned by Cascadero and partner Regberg.
