Taylor Deposit Long Section Profile
- The Central Deposit is a manto style deposit which is confined to the contact between Permian carbonates and the overlying Jurassic rhyolites and does not permeate below the Concha limestone (100 ft - 500 ft or 30 m - 150 m).
- The Central Deposit is comprised of manganese oxides with accessory silver minerals. The host rocks (Jurassic Rhyolites and Permian sediments) strike approximately southwest-northeast and dip ± 30° to the northwest. They do not appear to be significantly disrupted by post-mineralization faulting at deposit scale.
- A resource reported in the 43-101 report on January 16, 2018 estimates 21.8 million tons in the Measured Mineral Resource category grading 3.3 ounces per ton (opt) silver, 9.2% manganese and 1.9% zinc, and 41.7 million tons in the Indicated Mineral resource category grading 1.7 opt silver, 9.8% manganese and 2.3% zinc, plus 1.8 million tons in the Inferred Mineral resource category grading 1.6 opt silver, 7.4% manganese and 2.6% zinc.
