The Sandy Gold Project is located in northwest Sonora, Mexico within the prolific Sonora Megashear Gold Belt. Riverside staked the grassroots, Sandy Project in 2018 and has commenced work at the project with near surface sampling, mapping and geophysics to prove and work up targets for future joint venture partnership interest.
The sampling done to date by Riverside has been concentrated on two areas in the center of the project where past workings are located (see Figure 1 below) associated with felsic intrusive stock and gneiss. A sample from one of these old workings returned 38.8 g/t Au. Chip channel samples of 1.5 meter in length gave results over 9.3, 4.7 and 3.7 g/t Au. A total of 71 samples have been analyzed so far and further work at Sandy is anticipated to continue to define the structural nature and intrusion association to the gold.
