About Candente Gold

Candente Gold's flagship asset is El Oro, a district scale gold project encompassing a well-known and prolific, high grade gold dominant, silver epithermal vein system in Mexico. The project covers 20 veins with past production and more than 57 veins in total. Approximately 6.4 million ounces of gold and 74 million ounces of silver were reported to have been produced from just two of these veins (Ref. Mexico Geological Service Bulletin No. 37, Mining of the El Oro and Tlapujahua Districts. 1920, T. Flores)

Modern understanding of epithermal vein systems indicates that several of the El Oro district's veins hold excellent discovery potential, particularly below and adjacent to the historic workings of the San Rafael Vein, which was mined to an average depth of only 200 metres.

In addition to the hard rock potential, Candente Gold is investigating the potential to recover gold and silver from the Mexico Mine Tailings by granting Sun River Gold Corp. ("SRG"), the right and option to further test and, if proven economic, develop and operate the Company's tailings project in El Oro Mexico (the "Tailings Project"). Under the option, Sun River is to make staged payments, totalling US$500,000 over 28 months, bring the mine tailings into commercial production within 36 months, and grant to the Company a 5% of net profits ("NPI") Life of Mine royalty on production from the tailings. Candente Gold has the right to re-process the tailings under an agreement with the Municipality of El Oro.

Candente Gold is dedicated to being a responsible Community partner.
