San Jorge

Overview

TYPE OF PRODUCT OBTAINED FROM IT: Uranium

DEPOSIT TYPE: Sandstone-hosted uranium deposits

Uranium exploration in the San Jorge Gulf basin, Chubut province, began in the 1950s with the National Atomic Energy Commission (CNEA). Later, in the 2000s, other companies with foreign capital joined the CNEA in exploring this element, expanding the investigation at a regional level in search of new prospects. Hanaq has a considerable number of claims that have been divided into 3 blocks, which are in different stages of investigation and exploration. During previous campaigns carried out by other companies in the same areas, uranium and vanadium anomalies were detected in different areas and with different degrees of relevance. Two small producers, the Los Adobes and Cerro Cóndor mines, were in operation throughout the 1970s. An airborne radiometric and magnetic survey was conducted in the San Jorge basin in the late 1970s. A total of 2,372 uranium anomalies were detected within the 170,000 km² study area (CNEA, 1997). During 2019 Hanaq has carried out the identification and evaluation of 3 blocks of properties, reviewing the potential of each one, updating the geological data and marking new areas of interest. All of these tasks were carried out in order to carry out an effective long-term exploration program. Hanaq focuses all its efforts and resources on developing the projects with the greatest potential, therefore, the objective of evaluating the blocks in Chubut is to end up with an economically viable deposit in the region.

AMOUNT OF HECTARES: 35,892Ha

The Hanaq group of properties in Chubut province covers 35,892 Ha in the highly prospective area of the Golfo San Jorge basin. The uranium mineralization (U308) is mainly Sandstone Hosted. In the area, the CNEA (National Atomic Energy Commission) has reported in a pre-feasibility study for the Cerro Solo deposit, 4,600 tons of 0.3% uranium.
