Vancouver, British Columbia–(Newsfile Corp. – June 7, 2023) – Kingsmen Resources Ltd. (TSXV: KNG) (OTCQB: KNGRF) (“Kingsmen” or the “Company”) is pleased to report first results from its on-going surface sampling program of old workings along the Soledad and Soledad II structures, and their subsidiary structures, in the southeast part of the Las Coloradas project located 30km from Hildago, Parral, Chihuahua, Mexico. The Soledad structure is one of two previously mined structures identified on the project. Sixteen old workings were accessed and sampled on the SE part of the Soledad structure. Results are presented on Figure 1 and Table 1.


  • Thirty-nine (39) samples were collected.
    • 2 > 500 g/t silver
    • 4 > 200 g/t silver
    • 9 >100 g/t silver
  • Three separate target areas recognized on the Soledad vein/structure.
  • New 300 meter long mineralized structure recognized.
  • Prospecting and sampling are continuing.

Scott Emerson, President commented: “These results are very encouraging and they align well with the reported historic silver and gold production grades of 300 to 518 g/t silver, 0.6 to 0.8 g/t gold, 6.2 to 10.9% lead and 6.5 to 10.3 % zinc.”

The distribution of old workings on the southeastern part of the Soledad structure indicates three areas of interest (Figure 1 and Figure 2). The concentration between El Tronco (mine) and El Contrapozo (shaft) is developed on a flexure in the Soledad vein. This suggests the potential for strong structural control on mineralization with significant depth extent. The concentration between Las Jaras and La Cometa, and the flanking occurrences of El Barril, La Sirena and El Catrin, appear to be related to structures in/along felsic intrusives. The La Rama and La Casa area occur in volcanic-sedimentary rocks but may also be related to buried felsic intrusives. The alignment of the El Cubo to El Pescado workings clearly maps a separate, 300 meter long mineralized structure, separate from the Soledad. The El Negrito and La Campana workings do not lie on currently known structures. The mineralization is structurally controlled and typically quartz vein related, and exploits structures in both the felsic intrusives and the volcanic-sedimentary rocks. Geophysical surveys will better the define the lateral and depth extents of the structures controlling mineralization. There may be a transition, laterally and/or vertically, to epithermal gold-silver mineralization. Samples from the La Sirena mine, La Casa mine, El Zopilotito mine and Las Jaras shaft contain elevated gold values (Table 1). As well, the Mexico Geological Survey noted the presence of skarn mineralization (see below) which may be significant.

The mineralization that was exploited historically by ASARCO is shallow, high-grade, silver-gold-lead-zinc-copper veins. The La Soledad vein system, and its subsidiary structures, is estimated to be approximately 1 kilometer long based on the presence of old workings. Mining appears to have stopped at the water table and standing water is present in the deeper workings. Primary galena and sphalerite and pyrite are locally preserved in parts of the old workings which are very dangerous to enter. Where accessible, this remnant mineralization was sampled in order to gauge the grade of the mineralization as there are no accessible mining records available. This sampling will aid in identifying higher grade areas for future drilling. The sampling data (Table 1) indicates the potential for high grade silver mineralization with gold and base metal credits. The sizes of the old workings suggest the mined mineralization may have been up to several meters in width in the various zones of mineralization developed in the laterally extensive host structures, which will persist to depth below the water table where previous mining is reported to have stopped.

The area of the Los Coloradas Project lies within the Zona Mineralizada Cienega de Ceniceros on the Mexico Geological Survey (SGM) map sheet G13-59. The map notes state: “The veins strike NW-SE with dips of 760 SW and 700 NE. Veins are up to 200 meters long and 30 meters deep. The mineralization consists of sulphides of zinc, lead and silver in the La Reyna, La Soledad, Tres Estrellas, Rosario & El Gigante veins. Representative samples from these veins showed 0.2 to 2.0 g/t gold, 54 to 170 g/t silver, 1.2 to 4.2 % lead and 0.4 to 4.0% zinc. Skarn and hornfels style mineralization was noted disseminated in argillite and carbonate horizons and the potential for significant volumes of these styles of mineralization at depth was noted.” The locations of historic mines/workings are taken from the Mexico Geological Survey’s website GeoInfoMex – El Banco de Datos del SGM.

A QA/QC program was employed using blanks and certified reference standard, and check sampling.

It is not known how much production was generated by ASARCO during the years it operated in the area. The following information (not independently verified) was provided by Ing. Abelardo Garza Hernandez, President of Minera Sierra Almoloya S.A. de C.V. “Historic production came from small high grade underground mines, with average mining diluted grades in the order of 0.6 to 0.8 g/t gold, 300 to 518 g/t silver, 6.2 to 10.9 % lead and 6.5 to 10.3 % zinc, from four different veins, called La Soledad, Santo Niño, Eva and Rosario. Workings appear to have been on an area about 400 meters long, to a maximum depth of around 120 meters. More than twenty veins are known with most past production having come from the NW-trending Soledad vein system which is estimated to be approximately 1 km in length. There are numerous old mining works visible (pits, shafts, and superficial stopes) with depths of 10 meters to 140meters on the main shafts. Mining appears to have stopped at the water table. Standing water is present in the deeper workings.”

About Las Coloradas

The Las Coloradas Project ( 8.5 km2 -3.3 sq miles) represents a consolidation of a historic mining district which covers numerous silver-gold-lead-zinc-copper mines previously exploited by ASARCO (American Smelting and Refining Company), the U.S. based subsidiary of Grupo Mexico.

Las Coloradas is in the Parral mining district of the Central Mexican Silver Belt, located approximately 30 kilometers southeast of the city of Hildago de Parral and 40 kilometers east of the San Francisco de Oro and Santa Barbera mining districts where several old major mines are located, such as La Prieta, Veta Colorada, Palmilla, Esmeralda, San Francisco del Oro and Santa Barbara. As well, new major mining projects are currently being explored in the district; Cordero (Discovery Silver Corp.), 35 kms north of Parral, and La Cigarra (Kootenay Silver Inc.), 35 kms northwest of Parral.
