Aztec Minerals 3D Modelling of Gold-Silver Mineralization Supports New Exploration & Drilling Targets at Tombstone Project, Arizona



(via TheNewswire)

Aztec Minerals Corp.
  • Westside Area of the Tombstone project, adjacent to the historic Contention open pit, continues to show mineralized features with high potential for shallow gold-silver expansion drill targets

  • Contention Pit area field work and sampling is providing key information to delineate and expand the wide mineralized zone on surface and is being integrated into a 3D model for the first time

Vancouver, Canada – May 22, 2024 – TheNewswire – Aztec Minerals Corp. (AZT: TSX-V, OTCQB: AZZTF) (“Aztec” or the “Company“) announces that 3D modeling of gold-silver mineralized features supports a high confidence interpretation for continuity of shallow, oxidized Au-Ag exploration and drilling targets, below, alongside and to the West of the Contention Open pit at the Tombstone Project in Southeastern Arizona. The ongoing review and modelling of extensive historic and current data, combined with ongoing field work at the Tombstone Project has provided the key elements to building the first 3D model of the historic Tombstone Silver District, incorporating: underground workings, mined stopes, geology, multielement geochemistry, SWIR alterations, and geophysics. The modelling’s preliminary results show the basis of the primary geological controls of gold-silver mineralization down to over 300 meters depth. This is an important milestone to support exploration drilling of shallow targets to potentially extend the footprint of the known gold-silver mineralized zones.

Surface exploration confirms much of the upper portions of the historic data and strengthens the confidence of the 3D model. The surface exploration and modelling have also exposed areas of potential Au-Ag mineralization not extensively explored in the past. The ability to integrate historic and current exploration data for the first time in 3D at the Tombstone Project provides Aztec with valuable information and a strong foundation to continue expanding the footprint of the shallow gold-silver mineralization.

The Tombstone JV owns patented claims related to the Contention and Westside mines. Both mines host the three main deposit styles in the Tombstone district (fissure stringer vein lodes, mineralized Qfp dikes with breccias, and CRD mineralized beds in anticlines). They both encompass multiple, historic mines that produced high-grade gold-silver oxide mineralization at the Tombstone Project.

Recent review of historic data and on-site investigations by Aztec have confirmed that the Westside area was previously planned as an expansion of the Contention pit operations at the time on the interruption of mine operations in 1982. This review identified the Westside area as a high potential target for shallow gold-silver mineralization, almost doubling the project’s potential gold-silver oxide mineralization footprint near to the historic Contention Pit (please see news release dated April 22, 2024).

Aztec has completed a wire frame model of the tunnels (see Figure 1 below) and the Quartz-feldspar dikes (Qfp) (see Figure 2 below), which acted as mineralized solution conduits in the historic Tombstone Silver district. Aztec is now modelling the mined stopes, such as those of the Westside anticline (see Figure 3 below) and then model the intricate folded and faulted sedimentary geology.

Aztec’s recent surface exploration has confirmed the presence of several known and new mineralized features and mine workings and has georeferenced their positions in the project area. This has confirmed the historic positions of the underground workings and related important mineralized features, and that the mineralized features could be exploration targets, with evidence that their intersection potentially hosts broad gold-silver mineralization near surface.

Review of historic data has confirmed the Westside anticline was mined on at least five separate, stacked, oxidized CRD replaced layers in the sediments near the crest of the axis along its 450+ m length, noting that, at its intersection with the Arizona Queen Fissure at the fifth level (see Fig. 3 below), the 120 m long Sulphuret stope, was mapped at over 60 m wide and 10-20 m thick. The Sulphuret stope was reported (Butler, 1938) to have production averaging 70 opt silver with high-grade gold. Aztec drilling has confirmed that the gold-silver mineralization in the property extends beyond the limits of the historically mined stopes.

Most of the Westside area and its multiple targets have yet to be explored, representing a key area for future drilling and potential shallow resource delineation. The Westside – Sulphuret mine workings reached to the 7th and 8th levels (210-250 m), and historic drilling has significant CRD-style mineralized intercepts at 500 to 600 m depths. Several poorly explored anticlines, with evidence of mineralization at the edge of the historic open pit, have been identified and will be part of the exploration targeting.

In the Tombstone district the sedimentary hosted mineralization (CRD) is focused on the anticlines, in multiple, stacked horizons that have favorable permeability and chemistry with associated skarning-hornfelzing, argillic and silicic alterations. It appears the Qfp dikes generally have significant Au-Ag mineralization associated with them in the sedimentary country rock at an estimated average radius of 15 meters distally from their physical limits. The dikes and the quartz stringer lode-fissures at their intersections with the favorable sedimentary horizons often develop broad zones of mineralization.

Current Exploration Program

Aztec’s crews onsite are continuing the 2024 Tombstone exploration program (see news release dated April 22, 2024). Company is currently developing high priority drill targets as a result of the surface exploration program in the area of the Contention pit and surroundings, advancing the detailed geological mapping, and further out with reconnaissance level geological mapping of lithologies, Terraspec SWIR alterations and structures, multi-element rock geochemistry, and thin section petrology and alterations to review the hosting of the gold-silver mineralization. The data acquired is being integrated into the 3D model being constructed including the historic mine workings and geologic mapping of the principal portion of the Tombstone district. The 3D model is being geolocated to the current surface and geology, geochemistry and geophysics and will then be interpreted to strengthen both shallow and deep drilling targeting. This information will be used in supporting the upcoming drilling program design.

The ongoing exploration program is adding key knowledge into the expansion potential of the bulk tonnage, gold-silver oxidized mineralization, and from that, continue drilling and mineralization footprint. The focus of this exploration program is to better define the three styles of mineralization known to exist on the property and to identify top priority targets for drilling. The three types of known mineralization at the Tombstone property are as follows:

  • Silver-gold bearing, north-northeast striking felsic intrusive dikes hosting mesothermal stock-works and hydrothermal breccias that cut the Cretaceous Bisbee Group and the underlying Paleozoic carbonates, on which the historic Contention underground mine and later the 1980’s open pit heap leach mine was developed, which now is known to extend laterally and vertically beyond the Contention pit

  • High-grade, silver-gold quartz stringer vein lodes striking northeast cutting the Cretaceous Bisbee Group clastic sediments and the Paleozoics, which are related to several of the historic mines in the Tombstone district

  • Tombstone’s well known, high grade, oxidized, silver-gold rich base metal carbonate replacement deposits (“CRD”), which lie in the lowermost Bisbee Group and in the underlying Paleozoic carbonates, have a geologic setting very similar to the world-class Hermosa Taylor base metal sulfide deposit of South32, located 65 kilometers southwest of Tombstone. Strong structural controls of the Tombstone CRD deposit locations related parallel to the crests of anticlines, usually with vertical (“reef”) stacking on multiple, favorable horizons

Positive indications for mineralization at Tombstone include:

  1. The Bisbee sediments exhibit widespread fracturing, silica-pyrites-sericite-clay alteration, quartz veinlets, stockworks, and hornfelsing and in the limestones jasperoids, dolomitization and skarn development

  2. The Contention open pit mine is centered along a strong NNE fault structure with large, mineralized felsic dikes possibly related to a deeper intrusion

  3. The underground Contention mine mined the dike mineralization to over 300 m depth

  4. Historic drilling by Newmont and Santa Fe to over 700 m depth have intersected narrow to wide, high grade CRD mantos, evidence that the Paleozoic limestones are prospective

  5. The presence of several manganese-silver rich mines surround the Property are considered indicative of distal mineralization to CRD deposits worldwide

Tombstone Project Overview

Aztec holds a 75% interest in the Tombstone Property Joint Venture, which includes most of the original patented mining claims in the main district as well as some recently acquired properties.

The main target of the 2023 core drill program was to continue testing the shallow, bulk tonnage, heap leachable, mesothermal gold-silver oxide mineralization adjacent and below the previously mined Contention pit by infill and step-out drilling. Core drilling was deemed necessary to penetrate the multiple historic workings and to acquire needed geological data. Future drilling is expected to focus on strike and dip extensions of the shallow oxide mineralization and move deeper to test for larger and deeper “Taylor-type” CRD targets along and adjacent to the Contention structure.

The Tombstone project is located 100 kilometers (km) southeast of Tucson, Arizona and covers much of the historic Tombstone silver district. Tombstone is renowned for its high grade, oxidized, silver-gold mesothermal stringer lode veins, hydrothermal breccias and manto CRD orebodies that were mined in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. The historic silver production in the Tombstone district from 1878 to 1939 was estimated at 32 million ounces and 250,000 ounces of gold.

The district geology consists of a mix of shallow-level, oxidized Au-Ag and base metal deposits related to CRD and skarns hosted in folded and thrusted sediments, intrusive dikes and lode veins, and as well the under explored, sulfide versions located below the water table.

Host rocks to the mineralization are primarily the clastic sediments of the lowest portion of the Cretaceous Bisbee Formation. Between 50 and 300 meters (m) in depth, the Bisbee is underlain by approximately two kms thick of the same Paleozoic carbonate formations that host the 110 MT Hermosa-Taylor zinc-lead-silver deposit of South32 located 60 km southwest of Tombstone.

Although the historic silver mines at Tombstone were generally small, Aztec believes they could be related to much larger mesothermal and CRD orebodies below the old mines. Since 2017, Aztec has completed geological mapping, geochemical sampling and geophysical surveying to identify the most prospective areas for Au-Ag mineralization around and below the Contention open pit, and CRD zinc-lead-copper-silver-gold mineralization below the entire district. Aztec management views the district as highly prospective for the discovery of mesothermal and CRD orebodies.

Note: Gold equivalents are calculated using a 80:1 silver:gold ratio in 2020 and 2023 and a 70:1 silver:gold ratio in 2021. Reported lengths are apparent widths, not true widths. The Contention Au-Ag mineralization zones are generally west dipping at around 60-80 degrees, associated with the quartz-feldspar porphyry dikes. However, these dikes also extend as sills in shallow angles out from the Contention fault along fold noses in the Bisbee clastic sediments so the full range of mineralization dips vary from 20 to 80 degrees. True widths for the apparent mineralization intersection widths of the drill holes approximately range from 50 to 100% of the apparent widths, with the norm for the mineralized true widths being 60 to 90% of the apparent widths. Please see summary news releases dated: July 5, 2023, December 7, 2021, and January 12, 2021.

*Grade-Thickness in meters-grams/tonne means the result of multiplying a drill hole intercept length, measured in meters, by the grade of the gold values in the intercept, the resulting compiled number is measured in grams/tonne. Grade thickness is not to be construed as gross metal value nor as a resource. The Tombstone property does not have a current, compliant resource estimation at this point.

Summary Tombstone Project Highlights

  • Well located property on patented (33) and unpatented (42) claims (452.02 hectares/1,116.94 acres), covers much of the historic Tombstone silver mining district, great infrastructure, local town, road access, full services, water, power

  • Historic silver district produced 32 million oz silver from 1878-1939, in high grade, oxidized, silver-gold-lead-zinc-copper vein, breccia and CRD deposits, and small open pit heap leach production in late 1980’s

China Medical System: Innovative Drug Methylthioninium Chloride Enteric-coated Sustained-release Tablets Approved for Marketing in China



  • Innovative drug Methylthioninium Chloride Enteric-coated Sustained-release Tablets (Lumeblue®) is an oral diagnostic drug, approved by China’s NMPA for enhancing visualisation of colorectal lesions in adult patients undergoing screening or surveillance colonoscopy.
  • The results of the Phase III clinical trial in China show that the Product can significantly improve the detection rate of non-polypoid colorectal lesions (the primary endpoint of the study), leading to an improved detection rate of dangerous lesions such as non-polypoid adenomas (the secondary endpoint).
  • The Product can be taken during the bowel preparation step, ensuring that colorectal staining is completed by the time colonoscopy is conducted. This not only enhances the detection rate of colorectal lesions but also potentially simplifies the colonoscopy procedure, making the examination more efficient and improving the screening benefits.
  • As of now, CMS’s newly launched innovative portfolio has been expanded to 5 products, continuously generating driving force to the Group’s sustainable and healthy development.


SHENZHEN, CHINA – China Medical System Holdings Limited (the “Company”, together with its subsidiaries, the “Group” or CMS) is pleased to announce that on 11 June 2024, the New Drug Application (NDA) of the Group’s innovative drug methylthioninium chloride enteric-coated sustained-release tablets (Lumeblue®) (the “Product”) has been approved by the National Medical Products Administration of China (NMPA). The drug registration certificate was obtained on 18 June 2024. The Product is indicated to enhancing visualisation of colorectal lesions in adult patients undergoing screening or surveillance colonoscopy, and it is the first oral methylthioninium chloride enteric-coated sustained-release tablets in China. The Group will synergize with existing gastroenterology products and resources to advance the commercialization and academic promotion related works of the Product in an orderly manner, aiming to achieve nationwide large-scale clinical application as soon as possible so as to benefit patients with colorectal disease.


Lumeblue® is an oral diagnostic drug that uses patented multi-matrix (MMX) technology to deliver active substances directly to the colon and release them locally in a controlled manner. As an enhancer dye, the Product increases the contrast between colorectal lesions and healthy mucosa. The results of the Phase III clinical trial in China show that the Product can significantly improve the detection rate of non-polypoid colorectal lesions(the primary endpoint of the study), leading to an improved detection rate of dangerous lesions such as non-polypoid adenomas (the secondary endpoint)[1]. In addition, the Product can be taken during the bowel preparation step, ensuring that colorectal staining is completed by the time colonoscopy is conducted. This not only enhances the detection rate of colorectal lesions but also potentially simplifies the colonoscopy procedure, making the examination more efficient and improving the screening benefits.


According to the diagnosis and treatment data of the Digestive Endoscopy Branch of the Chinese Medical Association, approximately a total of 28 million gastroenteroscopies were completed nationwide in 2012, including 5.83 million colonoscopies. In 2019, approximately 38.73 million gastroenteroscopies were completed nationwide, an increase of 34.62% compared with 2012[2]. The Chinese consensus of early colorectal cancer screening recommends that people aged 50 to 75 years old should be screened for colorectal cancer regardless of whether they have alarm symptoms[3]. There are approximately 400 million people aged 50 to 75 in China in 2020[4]. With the popularity of early screening for colorectal cancer in China, it is expected to witness a considerable growth of the number of colonoscopies in China in the future.


The Product has been approved by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) to be commercialized in the European Union under the trade name Lumeblue™ in August 2020. The Group obtained an exclusive license for the Product from Cosmo Technologies Ltd, a fully owned subsidiary of Cosmo Pharmaceuticals NV, on 3 December 2020.


Driven by the twin-wheel of “Collaborative R&D and Independent R&D”, CMS has continuously deployed global first-in-class (FIC) and best-in-class (BIC) innovative products guided by patient and clinical demands. With enhancing R&D capabilities in developing differentiated innovative products, CMS has empowered the continuous transformation of scientific research outcomes into clinical application, continuously releasing the value of innovation. As of now, CMS’s newly launched innovative portfolio has been expanded to 5 products, continuously generating driving force to the Group’s sustainable and healthy development. Desidustat Tablets and Methotrexate Injection (rheumatoid arthritis), CMS’s innovative pipeline products, are currently under NDA review in China. Meanwhile, over 10 innovative pipeline products are undergoing clinical trials in China, mainly randomized controlled trials (RCT). CMS is expected to launch differentiated innovative products every year in the future with higher efficiency and more controllable costs, continuing to optimize its product portfolio and build fresh driving forces for the mid- to long-term development of the Company.
