The ground magnetic survey covered 95 per cent of the property and confirmed an important property-wide northwest trending structural fabric, which is potentially favourable to hosting gold and silver mineralization.

Geological mapping of the property has been carried out at a scale of 1:10,000, and more detailed district-scale alteration mapping is in progress, supported by spectrometry data collection.

Cerro Bayo is located in the west part of the Deseado Massif, an exposed block of Mesozoic volcanic rocks that host low- to intermediate-sulfidation style gold and silver epithermal systems where several mines operate.

Latin Metals is a mineral exploration company acquiring a diversified portfolio of assets in South America.

Latin Metals Inc. (LMS) is up 4 per cent, trading at C$0.13 per share as of 10:20 am ET.
