SURE Investor Highlights
In January of 2011, the Company announced the appointment of Juan Miguel Rios Gutierrez, as President & CEO. In 2004, he was the fourth person hired by First Majestic Silver Corporation ("FMSC") of Durango, Mexico where he helped to build that company from a junior mining exploration company on the TSXV to a major global silver producer (7.5m oz Ag in 2011).
In April, Sonora entered into a joint venture agreement with First Majestic under an option agreement for up to 90% of the 5,240 hectare Jalisco Group of Properties which offers extraordinarily detailed historic data with strong indicators for intensive future commercial activity. This acquisition was added to a portfolio that already included the 3,590 hectare Los Amoles property in the state of Sonora.
Los Amoles has produced significant samples of gold and silver and benefits from analogous regional geology and widespread exploratory efforts as defined by the prevalence of surrounding operations owned and operated by major producers Grupo Mexico and Industrias Peñoles, world leaders in silver production and two of the largest Mexican producers of gold, zinc, lead and copper.
Announced the recent acquisition of the Ayones Property made up of several claims encompassing the historically productive La Mazata multi-level underground silver mine, and the surrounding 47.8 hectare Ayones claims under an option exploration agreement for up 100% of the mineral rights from Industrial Minera Mexico S.A. de C.V., a subsidiary of Grupo Mexico.
Most recently, the Company dramatically improved its position through the acquisition of the adjoining privately-owned 721 hectare Corazon claims which encircles Ayones, thereby creating direct access to a number of notable veins which trend outward from the central Mazata mine area and which have never been explored at depth.
At both the Ayones/Corazon and Los Amoles properties, the Company has acquired ready access to valuable above ground reserves in the form of tailings from historic mine workings. These deposits encompass a significant quantity of historic dump material which appears to contain consistent commercial grade mineralization offering a winning combination of easy access, low start up production costs and rapid earnings opportunities.
