The time for junior mines and exploration companies has come! True course fireworks are expected! Those who position themselves quickly and correctly will get rich!
If you look at the supply side of precious metals in particular, you will notice that there is no replenishment! This is not only missing in the physical area, i.e. bars, coins, etc., but also in companies that urgently need to replace their mined or produced reserves with new deposits in the ground!
The reason for the lack of supplies is quickly found. Because due to the past eight bad and difficult years in the raw materials and mining sector, the exploration and acquisition of new projects was not only shut down, but mostly completely put on hold! Revenge now follows on foot! The situation was exacerbated recently by the COVID-19 pandemic, in which mines and refineries were largely closed.
So what to do if you run out of time? It is clear that new deposits are needed!
There will therefore be many project or company takeovers in the coming weeks and months! But since you also have to be selective here, this step should also be carefully considered. Because simply buying an inferior project somewhere is certainly not a good idea for companies. Therefore, projects have to be created that are “predictable”. So where you definitely know that something is in the ground and that it can be degraded at low cost.
But these projects are in short supply. Therefore, the companies and we as investors who also want to benefit from this trend have to spend a lot of time researching to find precisely those rough diamonds that only need to be cut. And we are of the opinion that we have found one of these diamonds! EVERYTHING is right here!
The still young but extremely promising explorer Aztec Minerals Corp. (ISIN: CA0548271000 / WKN: A2DRF0 / TSX-V: AZT) has more to offer than you might think at first glance! And the good thing is that no one has this stock on their radar yet! Therefore, the company is still on the move with low market capitalization and still has huge and explosive price potential!
We are once again a big step ahead of institutional investors!
The company currently has two extremely promising gold and base metal projects in the world’s best mining areas, namely the United States and Mexico. The US project in Arizona was even mined earlier, which is why the infrastructure is perfect! Drilling will be made significantly easier and less expensive because high-grade mineralization has been identified on both projects. That means: the identified mineralization can initially be followed up and enlarged.
We have probably identified one of the most promising explorers on the course slip!
Aztec Minerals Corp. (ISIN: CA0548271000 / WKN: A2DRF0 / TSX-V: AZT) is still a young company and only saw the light of the Canadian stock exchange on May 4, 2017! The IPO brought the company $ 4 million back then.
And here is the first mega hammer !!!
With 1.9 million shares, none other than the mining giant Coeur Mining has a stake in the company, which also supports the company as an important strategic partner! Immediately after the IPO, Aztec began exploring the ‘Cervantes’ gold project in Mexico and was also aiming to go public on the American stock exchange. This IPO became a reality on Nov. 20, 2017. Just four weeks later, on December 18, 2017, management completed an option to purchase the second project, ‘Tombstone’ in Arizona, USA, thereby completing the current project portfolio.
Aztec Minerals Corp. in a quick overview!
- Interesting combination of large polymetallic and precious metal discoveries!
- Exploration of “elephant deposits”, which are attractive for large mining companies!
- Experienced management and board with a proven track record of creating value!
- Attractive capital structure with only 41 million shares issued! The market capitalization is below CAD 12 million, so the company has no one on the screen yet!
- Two first-class projects in the mining-friendly judging areas North America and Mexico!
- Exceptional ‘CRD’ zinc-lead-copper-silver potential at the ‘Tombstone’ project in Arizona!
- High-grade porphyry gold-copper discovery at the ‘Cervantes’ project in Sonora, Mexico!
- We expect several price-influencing catalysts for the shareholders in the coming months, especially through drilling on two “elephant targets” on ‘Tombstone’!
The US gold project ‘Tombstone’ – a huge silver deposit is possible here!
The project with the highest priority level in the known region of silver-lead-zinc and gold in the southern part of Arizona, USA, already has an exciting history! Because production was very profitable here before.
Aztec Minerals Corps. (ISIN: CA0548271000 / WKN: A2DRF0 / TSX-V: AZT) The current resource area extends over approximately 164 hectares. Due to the historical dismantling, the project already has the important infrastructure. There are road connections as well as water and electricity, which is also an important criterion for potential buyers and is rewarded with corresponding price premiums!

The region’s metal wealth was first discovered in 1877 and from 1879 to 1939 silver was mined from the high-grade ore.
Some of the richest deposits came from the ‘Grand Central’ and ‘Contention’ mines, both of which are located on the Aztec Minerals project area. The average grade of the yield at that time was around 892 g / t silver, 7.2 g / t gold and 2.25% lead. Sporadically, mining continued on the ‘Contention’ mine underground until 1980, after which mining continued from an open pit until the early 1990s.
At that time, about 1.86 million tons of material averaging 38.9 g / t silver and 0.62 g / t gold for 1.1 million ounces of silver and 20,000 ounces of gold processed. Aztec Minerals (ISIN: CA0548271000 / WKN: A2DRF0 / TSX-V: AZT) Initial exploration work already suggests that an extremely large number of resources are still slumbering in the ground.

The historic mining took place from narrow but high-grade epithermal quartz veins to depths of around 150 m, where the sedimentary area of the greenstone belt begins, which according to measurements is said to contain mineralization down to a depth of at least 1,000 m.
2020 – what is the planning like?
Aztec Minerals Corp. (ISIN: CA0548271000 / WKN: A2DRF0 / TSX-V: AZT) pursues two main goals in the area of the ‘Contention’ mine. On the one hand, epithermal gold and silver mineralization near the surface is to be explored more precisely for the first time in summer using drilling programs, while on the other hand, lead-zinc-silver-gold mineralization is also being explored in the deep region of the paleozoic greenstone layer. And from this, at least according to the geologists, excellent finds and results can be expected. That would prove the results of historical drilling. If there are hits with high-grade occurrences, the stock will soon be on a completely different level! The current low market value could even quickly fire the title above the CAD 1 mark!
Source: Aztec Minerals
And now the next hammer is coming !!!
With the youngest Sampling in the ‘Contention’ pit was up to 3,178 g / t silver and 23.5 g / t gold measured!!! Since the epithermal mineralization along the strike is still open, we assume that there will be further high-grade hits that can have a significant impact on the price!
For us, this means investors, we have been involved in writing a success story from the start. And the quartz veins that have already been identified should ensure that it also becomes one. So far, these have not been explored using modern methods. A lot can still come here alone!
Since the deeper areas under the open pit are also still untouched, this area will also be really exciting and also particularly interesting for drilling targets! Because the mineralization formations at depth have proven to be extremely profitable at several points in the region.
Another absolute hit is the location of ‘Tombstone! Right next to Arizona Mining!
Because in this context, you have to know that the project is only 40 miles northeast of the ‘Hermosa’ silver district, where Arizona Mining recently discovered a first-class ‘CRD’ deposit of 100 million tons of ore with a 10% zinc equivalent grade ! As a result, Arizona Mining’s stock exploded from $ 0.25 to $ 6.20, and shareholders finally accepted a massive $ 1.8 billion takeover offer from South32! An unbelievable success for the shareholders!

- Well located land package and 164 hectares of land approved for exploration that even includes historic silver mining areas and thus a great infrastructure. City proximity, street access and all necessary services are just as close as water and electricity!
- The project includes a historic silver district that produced from a high-grade, oxidized silver-gold-lead-zinc-copper vein and ‘CRD’ deposits in the years 1878-1939. After that there was a small open pit heap leach production in the 1980s!
- Seven promising areas related to trend structures have already been identified!
- ‘Tombstone’ is only 40 miles northeast of the ‘Hermosa’ silver district, where Arizona Mining discovered a first-class ‘CRD’ deposit of 100 million tonnes grading 10% zinc equivalent! Arizona Mining shares then exploded from $ 0.25 to $ 6.20!
- Pronounced magnetic anomalies confirm several target areas. For example, ‘Contention Pit’ harbors ditches along the strongest structure and thus provides excellent potential for the ‘Taylor’ CRD discovery!
- Recent high-grade sampling in the ‘Contention’ pit showed levels of up to 3,178 g / t silver and 23.5 g / t gold. The epithermal mineralization remains open along strike, also with mega potential!
- Historic drilling around the ‘Contention’ mine has produced several high grade sections with grades of up to 1.61 g / t gold and 91.2 g / t silver over 44.2 m!
- Historical deep drilling for the ‘CRD’ mineralization has already produced several sections with a grade of up to 32 g / t silver, 0.61% copper, 6.5% lead and 2.6% zinc over 7.2 m!
- An advantage not to be underestimated! Aztec no longer has to “blind” drill in search of high grade mineralization because a high grade zone has already been identified. The first thing to do is to define them more precisely. If necessary, historical boreholes are re-drilled and evaluated using the latest technology in order to track and expand the mineralized zones! This saves the company a lot of money and time !!!
From the United States to Mexico to the ‘Cervantes’ gold project – right next to large, active mines
The 3,650 hectare project area is located in the Mexican state of Sonora, about 55 km west of the active large gold producer Alamos Gold with its ‘Mulatos’ mine and Agnico Eagle with its ‘La India’ production. Thanks to road connections, water and electricity, this project also has an excellent infrastructure.
Joint venture with Kootenay Silver
Aztec Minerals Corp. (ISIN: CA0548271000 / WKN: A2DRF0 / TSX-V: AZT) runs this project on an option basis, on which one can acquire up to 100% of the rights of disposal in two stages. 65% will be achieved if investments in exploration, payment and transfer of shares to Kootenay Silver are made. At the end of July 2019, Aztec had invested $ 1.5 million in exploration, paid $ 150,000, and handed over 1 million shares to Kootenay Silver, thereby asserting its claim. The remaining 35% can be acquired by completing a pre-profitability study along with additional shares and cash payments.
However, Aztec Minerals and Kootenay Silver decided in January this year to jointly develop the project in a ‘joint venture’. A step that we welcome.
Geology and project development
‘Cervantes’ contains an approximately 6 km long corridor in which four gold-bearing project parts have so far been determined based on field samples and magnetic overflight measurements.
Source: Aztec Minerals
Oxidic weathering rocks predominate in the area of the surface while sulfidic formations of volcanic origin can be observed at depth.
The first holes last year showed large mineralized lengths with gold, copper and silver. The best results include:
- 160 m with 0.77 g / t Au, 0.13% Cu and 3.4 g / t Ag
- 139 m with 0.70 g / t Au, 0.10% Cu and 2.1 g / t Ag
- 43 m with 1.18 g / t Au, 0.16% Cu and 5.1 g / t Ag
The drilling took place on the project part ‘California’ because this project part was classified as a priority. Geological interpretations speak of possible ore-containing expansions down to a depth of at least 500 m, which means there is great potential for an extensive resource!
Source: Aztec Minerals
The first metallurgical tests also showed very good recovery rates from the different structures. In the first laboratory tests, values of up to were gained 85% gold from the oxide formations near the surface, 78% from the mixed areas below and 51% from the deeper sulphidic rock layers.
Planning for 2020
After the ‘JV’ contract was concluded, the partners plan exploration activities, which for the first time will also focus on ‘Purisima West’, ‘Estrella’, ‘Jacobo’, ‘Brazil’ and other promising parts of ‘Cervantes’. But let’s start with ‘California’ and sections on ‘Purisima’. Exploration begins immediately after obtaining the necessary regulatory approvals, which are to be granted very soon. So it can start quickly!
- 3,649 hectare property with excellent infrastructure such as: road access, nearby town, water fountain on the property and a power supply in the immediate vicinity!
- Eleven promising mineralized zones related to high grade porphyres and breccias have been discovered!
- Strong geochemical soil anomalies in the ‘California’ zone with average 0.44 g / t gold over a length of 900 m, a width of 600 m and up to 0.47 g / t gold over 222 m. Drill results of up to were within a gold oxide cap, which is common for a classic gold-copper porphyry deposit 0.77 g / t gold over 160 m reported. Sometimes even peak values of up to 4 g / t gold reached!
- Excellent gold mining in metallurgical testing of cores from the California zone! Oxide gold extraction in bottle roll tests achieved a yield of 75% to 87% straight away!
- The ‘California’ zone is further open laterally and in depth, and the ‘IP’ anomaly reinforces and extends to a depth of 500 m over an area of 1,100 m x 1,200 m!
- Aztec is initially planning to cost-effectively investigate historical holes using new exploration methods to better isolate the strong mineralization. Therefore, top results can be achieved with little financial expenditure, which can have the potential to re-evaluate the company!
Stock structure extremely tight and important anchor investors on board!
The debt free Aztec Minerals Corp. (ISIN: CA0548271000 / WKN: A2DRF0 / TSX-V: AZT) currently has around 41 million shares outstanding. The stock, which is tradable in Germany, Canada, and the United States, is currently trading at around $ 0.30, which translates into a market capitalization of just $ 12 million. So a lot of room for improvement, even at $ 1.20 the share would be valued at just under $ 50 million, which can happen at any time with just one or two high-quality hits!
Source: Aztec Minerals
In terms of the shareholder structure, it is striking that management and insiders own around 12% of the company with 4.7 million shares held. As already mentioned, the largest strategic investor is Coeur Mining Inc. with 1.8 million shares or 5% of the outstanding shares. Some key anchor investors continue to hold large positions.
We expect high demand for barely freely tradable stocks. Because informed investors never give up a piece! You must act now before the course runs away. Monday the stock exchanges in Germany are closed due to the holiday! If you are smart, you are already buying a first position directly in Canada!

TOP management with impressive expertise!
The most important thing for an exploration company is management. If this is not true, the company cannot survive in the long run. Since this is true at Aztec Minerals, this is a strong selling point! Because the company is not only managed by academically well-trained specialists, some with decades of experience, which were acquired from well-known companies, but by real ‘company makers’!
President and CEO
Joey Wilkins is a geologist who has been active for over 30 years, focusing on the research of porphyry copper deposits and epithermal gold-silver deposits, but also of nickel-copper platinum group deposits. After leading positions as a geologist at other companies, he has headed Aztec Minerals since 2013 and was largely responsible for the acquisition of the projects.
Mr. Yee has over 20 years of experience in corporate management, regulation, finance and tax law in both private and stock exchange listed companies.
The top management is supported by expert directors
Cooke is a geologist with more than 40 years of raw materials and mining experience. He is the founder and board member of one of the largest silver producers in the world, Endeavor Silver. He is also the founder of Aztec Minerals, which he bought as a private copper-gold prospector company. His expertise is broad and ranges from finance to acquisitions to the development of gold and silver projects.
Patricio VarasGeologist Mark RebagliatiGeologist Jim Schilling, independent investor and Stewart Lockwood the secretary rounds off the distinguished team.
The relatively young company Aztec Minerals Corp. (ISIN: CA0548271000 / WKN: A2DRF0 / TSX-V: AZT) is managed exclusively by proven successful managers, whose qualities are documented for the first time through the selection of the projects.
Even though the Mexican project is still at an early stage of research, while the Arizona project already has a historically proven resource, both projects show enormous development potential. Developing this is now the top priority of management, also to ensure that it is not taken over too early and too cheaply!
Because with their excellent mineralization routes, both projects already indicate such great potential that a transferee could strike here very early! The recent price increase may already indicate that Aztec Minerals Corp. (ISIN: CA0548271000 / WKN: A2DRF0 / TSX-V: AZT) is discovered. Therefore, you should not hesitate to get started, as the saying goes: “The early bird catches the worm”!
With this company we can imagine a similar course development as with the Canada Nickel Corporation. We introduced this company to you at around 0.50 CAD in mid-March. In the recent high, the share was already over CAD 1.40!
For the further development of the projects, especially the US ‘Tombstone’ project, Aztec will still have to take money in hand. We therefore assume that there will soon be a financing round. However, due to the success so far and the increased raw material prices, the demand should already be huge!
Especially since Coeur Mining is a strong partner. We could imagine that the company is getting a lot of offers for fresh capital. But since only a few pieces are likely to be issued, many investors have to go through the market. Prevent this!
The screenplay too Aztec Minerals Corp. (ISIN: CA0548271000 / WKN: A2DRF0 / TSX-V: AZT), one of the most exciting exploration companies on our course slip, has already been written. The chapters are drilling successes, initial resource and economic studies! Now the film is being shot! And with the completion of each chapter, the company has to be reassessed !!!
Therefore, consider for yourself whether you are part of this almost unique story and want to make money! If you answer “yes”, start buying stocks right away to have a big enough position when the mail goes off! Now is the time for massive profits on the mining stocks!
Best wishes and maximum success with your investments!
