Taylor Deposit Long Section Profile
- Manto style deposit confined to the contact between Permian carbonates and the overlying Jurassic rhyolites and does not permeate below the Concha limestone (100 - 500 feet or 30 - 150 metres) into the underlying Paleozoic formations.
- Comprised of manganese-silver oxides.
- The Central deposit has been interpreted to be a stratiform (manto) type replacement-style deposit.
- Host rocks (Jurassic Rhyolites and Permian sediments) strike approximately southwest-northeast and dip ± 30° to the northwest.
- A resource reported in the 43-101 report on November 29, 2016 estimates 76.1 million tons in the Measured Mineral Resource category grading 1.6 ounces per ton (opt) silver, 3.4% manganese and 1.4% combined lead/zinc, and 105.6 million tons in the Indicated Mineral resource category grading 1.1 opt silver, 2.8% manganese and 1.4% combined lead/zinc, plus 45.2 million tons in the Inferred Mineral resource category grading 1.0 opt silver, 1.8% manganese and 1.2% combined lead/zinc.
