Finding these companies still flying under the radar is now the art! We think we have found one. Because a single correct drilling hit is enough to trigger a catapult start in new course regions!
We already provided you with such a straggler who sits on a huge deposit on May 30, 2020 Aztec Minerals Corp. (ISIN: CA0548271000 / WKN: A2DRF0 / TSX-V: AZT) in front. Because this company, which has a lot more to offer when looking closer than it seems at first glance, is not even noticed by the market. This should rapidly change. Because with the timely start of drilling, a direct hit can be reported at any time, which must result in a reassessment of the company! And that’s exactly why we see explosive price potential here !!!
Aztec Minerals saw the light of day on the Canadian TSX-V exchange on May 4, 2017. The IPO brought the company around $ 4 million at that time, which was brought into two promising properties in Arizona, USA and Sonora, Mexico. Due to its still extremely low market capitalization, currently only around 15 million CAD, this company has hardly anyone on the screen.
We want to have a first-hand explanation of what the undervalued company has to offer. We asked none other than Badford Cooke, the chairman of Aztec Minerals, for an interview! We have translated this into German below!
Look forward to exciting and informative words from a man who already acquired projects in Mexico with starting capital of only USD 300,000 and formed Endeavor Silver, one of the world’s top ten silver producers, who currently has a market capitalization of around 445 Brings millions of CAD on the scales.
Jörg Schulte: “Hello Bradford, thank you for taking the time to interview me. I already explained to our readers in the introduction that you are the founder, board member and CEO of the successful company Endeavor Silver. With Aztec Minerals you have another company, which we find very exciting and consider to be extremely promising. Could you please give our readers and investors a brief summary of Aztec Minerals and its characteristics? ”
Bradford Cooke: “Hello Jörg, thank you for giving me the opportunity to tell your readers and investors the story of Aztec Minerals! Aztec Minerals Corp. is a three year old mineral exploration company focused on the discovery of large polymetallic mineral deposits in mining-friendly jurisdictions. We focus on the hunt for “elephants” because these discoveries attract large mining companies that need huge ore deposits to keep their business going.

Our company is headed by an experienced management and board team, with a proven track record of adding value through discovery and development to production. The company is listed on the TSX-V in 2017 and has only 41 million shares outstanding, more than 35% of which are in close possession.

I personally own about 8% of the company and Coeur Precious Metals, the leading silver mine operator, about 5%. Other insiders hold 4%. In total, 37% of the outstanding shares are in firm hands.
We are planning to launch an aggressive drill campaign this summer on the ‘Tombstone’ silver-gold-lead-zinc-copper project in Arizona, USA. ‘Tombstone’ has strong geological similarities to the recent massive ‘Taylor’ discovery from Arizona Mining, which is only around 40 miles from ‘Tombstone’.

In 2018, Aztec made a new gold-copper discovery on its ‘Cervantes’ property in Sonora, Mexico. The highlights of this discovery include several drill hole sections with up to 0.77 g / t gold over a width of 160 m. This means that the company not only has one, but two convincing exploration projects with ‘elephant’ targets that are ready for drilling. “
Jörg Schulte: “Excellent, and it is good to see that the board, the management and other strong investors are in the same boat with the shareholders! Before we delve deeper into the company’s assets, could you give us some background on management of the company? ”
Bradford Cooke: “Certainly, the rule of thumb for investing in every small company is: management, management, management and then location, location location. Aztec has three top exploration professionals in management! Mark Rebagliati, who has won the Hunter Dickinson Group Miner of the Year award for his gold-copper-porphyry discoveries in Canada, Pat Varas, who made a significant copper-iron discovery in Chile, and his company in 2011 for I sold 685 million CAD. I am the founder and CEO of the medium-sized silver-gold mining company, Endeavor Silver, which currently has a market cap of around $ 445 million.
In management, CEO and chief geologist Joey Wilkins is a porphyry copper-gold expert who has worked with Kennecott for almost 20 years. CFO Philip Yee has nearly three decades of accounting, finance and administration experience. So the shareholders are in good hands when it comes to the Aztec strategy of elephant hunting for large, new minerals. “
Jörg Schulte: “What can you tell us about Aztec’s assets and current plans?”
Bradford Cooke: “Aztec has two great exploration projects in safe jurisdictions with ‘Tombstone’ in Arizona and ‘Cervantes’ in Sonora.
Let’s start with ‘Tombstone’:
Source: Aztec Minerals Corp.
‘Tombstone’ is the focus of the upcoming drilling program. The project is in a very good location on patented claims and includes the historic silver mining area of the same name. The property has many key factors for successful work, including great infrastructure near a local mining-friendly city. Also has ‘Tombstone’ over a street entrance. Due to the proximity to the city, comprehensive services, materials, labor, water and electricity are available almost directly.
‘Tombstone’ is a historic silver district that produced around 32 million ounces of silver from high-grade, oxidized silver-gold-lead-zinc-copper-veins and ‘mantos’ between 1878 and 1939. At the largest historic mine, ‘Contention’, there was brief mining in the open-cast mine as a heap leaching operation in the early 1990s!
We believe that the many old mines in the ‘tombstone’ area are associated with huge epithermal and ‘CRD’ mineralizations that are adjacent to or below the old mines. Since 2017, Aztec has performed geological mapping, geochemical sampling, and geophysical surveys to identify the most promising areas for large tonnage, epithermal gold-silver mineralization around and below the Contention open pit, and high-grade carbonate reserves (‘CRD’) with a zinc – Identify lead-copper-silver-gold mineralization below the entire district. We plan to aggressively drill ‘tombstone’ this summer. ”
Source: Aztec Minerals Corp.
Jörg Schulte: “What do you think, ‘Tombstone’ is comparable to other mines in Arizona?”
Bradford Cooke: “‘Tombstone’ is located only 40 miles northeast of the ‘Hermosa’ silver district, where Arizona Mining discovered a 10 million zinc equivalent world-class CRD deposit a few years ago containing 100 million tons. Between 2015 and 2018, Arizona Mining stock rose from $ 0.25 to $ 6.20, and Arizona Mining shareholders finally accepted a friendly takeover offer from South 32 for $ 1.8 billion in 2018.
Source: Aztec Minerals Corp.
The next historical silver district with almost identical geology along the ‘Hermosa’ trend is the ‘Tombstone’ district. Aztec recently completed a geophysical survey that identified a highly conductive body. This is exactly the geological environment that we want to see for potential ‘CRD’ massive sulfide mineralization in the same, underlying paleozoic limestone formations on ‘Tombstone’ that also house the ‘Taylor’ discovery 40 miles away.
In addition, historical deep drilling for ‘CRD’ mineralization by a previous operator on ‘Tombstone’ identified a deeper section of the grade 32 g / t silver, 0.61% copper, 6.5% lead and 2.6% zinc over 7.2 m. This mineralized area is wide open for expansion, suggesting that there is great potential for the discovery of ‘CRD’ massive sulfides such as the ‘Taylor’ deposit also in ‘Tombstone’.
Jörg Schulte: “That sounds good, but what about the near-surface and abundant epithermal gold-silver mineralization that houses the ‘tombstone’?”
Bradford Cooke: “Good question. Recent high-grade sampling in the ‘Contention’ mine showed grades of up to 3,178 g / t silver and 23.5 g / t gold in an epithermal floor mineralization that remains open along strike and at depth. Historic drilling around the ‘Contention’ mine after the mine was shut down resulted in several sections grading up to 1.61 g / t gold and 91.2 g / t silver over 44.2 m. This means that in addition to the high-level ‘CRD’ target ‘Taylor’, Aztec has the potential for epithermal gold-silver mineralization with large tonnages!
In addition, we do not have to guess and look for where to drill on ‘tombstone’ because we already have holes that cut both epithermal mineralization with large tonnages and high-grade ‘CRD’ mineralization. We plan to confirm some historic drill holes this summer and then expand the mineralized zones on both the shallow and deeper targets. ”
Jörg Schulte: “Let’s switch over to Mexico. Can you tell us something more about the ‘Cervantes’ project in Sonora? “
Bradford Cooke: “Of course very much. We came across gold in our first drilling program in 2017 and 2018 on ‘Cervantes’. Aztec has a 65% stake in the project and forms a 65/35 joint venture with Kootenay Silver. Joint exploration is also scheduled to resume this year.
‘Cervantes’ is a large and well located 3,649 hectare property with good infrastructure and road access. There is also a local town nearby. The project also has water wells and a power supply in the immediate vicinity. There are eleven promising mineralized zones associated with high grade porphyry and breccia at the intersection of regional northwest porphyry copper and east west epithermal gold trends.
The target area ‘California’ was found by geochemical soil sampling, with the soil samples on a 900 m long and 600 m wide area 0.44 g / t gold on average with peak values of up to 4 g / t gold surrendered. Aztec’s first drill discovery in the ‘California’ zone intersected a gold oxide cap to a classic gold-copper porphyry deposit and reported multiple drill intercepts up to 0.77 g / t gold over 160 m. The discovery showed excellent gold recovery from metallurgical testing, with oxide gold recovery in bottle roll tests ranging between 75% and 87%. The zone ‘California’ is still open at the side and at depth. We have an ‘IP’ anomaly that solidifies in an area of 1,100m x 1,200m and extends to 500m depth.

As with the ‘Tombstone’ project, we also know where to drill in order to encounter a strong mineralization on ‘Cervantes’. Therefore, further planning includes a drilling phase that better limits the mineralization. “
Jörg Schulte: You have just announced unsolicited equity financing for a private placement unit at $ 0.30 per share. How does that go?”
Bradford Cooke: “It’s going well, thanks to the recent results from ‘Tombstone’, where a geophysical ‘NSAMT’ survey outlined several compelling drill targets. We have arranged up to $ 3 million in private placement financing with experienced investors, shareholders and directors of the company. Aztec will use the net proceeds of the private placement to complete aggressive drilling on the Silver, Gold, Lead, Zinc, Copper, Tombstone, Arizona, project. Later, we also plan to resume exploration on the Cervantes porphyry gold-copper project in Mexico. ”
Jörg Schulte: “It sounds like Aztec is entering its most interesting phase of business so far and shareholders can expect a strong flow of news.”
Bradford Cooke: “Yes indeed. Exciting times are ahead of our shareholders. ”
Yes, dear readers, what should you add to such detailed information? The company has everything you need for a success story.
Aztec Minerals Corp. (ISIN: CA0548271000 / WKN: A2DRF0 / TSX-V: AZT) is managed exclusively by proven successful managers who have acted very farsightedly when selecting the project.
Although the Mexican project is still in the early stages of exploration, while the Arizona project already has a historically proven residual resource, both projects already show massive development potential. It is the management’s stated goal to determine this as quickly and inexpensively as possible. This is the only way to rule out not being taken over too cheaply, especially since the M&A market is just starting to get going, since both projects with their excellent mineralization routes already indicate huge potential.
Therefore, you should not hesitate to get started, because: “The early bird catches the worm”. As far as the financing round is concerned, we assume huge interest. Since only a few shares are issued, not all investors can be served. These will then probably buy into the stock market, which can lead to explosive price jumps with a market as tight as Aztec. So get ahead of them!
The script for a success story is written! The other chapters are drilling successes, first resource and then profitability studies! And with every chapter must Aztec Minerals Corp. (ISIN: CA0548271000 / WKN: A2DRF0 / TSX-V: AZT) be reassessed !!!
So think about whether you want to be part of this story and make money! If you answer that with “yes”, start buying stocks so that you are already well invested when the big investors come and the mail really goes off! The time for massive profits on the mining stocks is just beginning!
Best regards and maximum success with your investments! your
