    Sobek is situated within the tectonic flat-slab segment of the Mio-Pliocene volcanogenic belt which is known as one of the world’s most endowed regions for giant magmatic-hydrothermal ore deposits. Sobek was staked by Mirasol based on prospective local structural architecture with an important north-northeast trending mineralized structural corridor crosscut by north-northwest trending deep seated trans-cordilleran lineaments. The Sobek property land position was expanded in 2021 following significant results reported by Filo Mining Corp. from its Filo del Sol project (located 7km to the east), which included a remarkable intercept of 858m at 1.80% CuEq (including 163m at 5.43% CuEq)[1]

  • Sobek is situated within the tectonic flat-slab segment of the Mio-Pliocene volcanogenic belt which is known as one of the world’s most endowed regions for giant magmatic-hydrothermal ore deposits. This belt hosts many large Cu deposits, including Rio Blanco, El Teniente and Pelambres-Pachon, as well as significant epithermal Au-Ag deposits, including Pascua-Lama, Veladero and El Indio. The Sobek property covers Lower Miocene intrusives and volcanics in the South and Central blocks and a Permo-Triassic intrusive sequence in the North Block. Repeated magmatism in the region from the Permian through the Eocene to Lower and mid-Miocene has led to the formation and preservation of several giant porphyry Cu-Au deposits.

    A new mineralized district is developing in the Sobek area with multiple deposits located in close proximity, including the Filo del Sol, Josemaria and Los Helados porphyry Cu-Au deposits located 7km east, 10 km east-northeast and 20 km north of Sobek, respectively. Mirasol now controls 8,571 ha of exploration claims in this district in three blocks that are all on the Chilean side of the border with Argentina.

    Mirasol has recently completed a high resolution 2,690 line-km helicopter supported aeromagnetic (“MAG”) survey contracted to High-Sense Geophysics Limited in Chile. The survey covered the entire property and was designed to refine the geological and structural interpretation at Sobek. Magnetic surveys can identify features commonly associated with large mineralized systems such as porphyry Cu-Au and high sulfidation epithermal Au-Ag deposits.

    Following processing and interpretation of the MAG data, Mirasol will commence a ground exploration program at Sobek during the current exploration season. This program will further assess the potential for porphyry Cu-Au and epithermal Au-Ag mineralization with geochemical sampling, detailed geological mapping and potentially additional ground geophysical surveys over the priority prospects.
