The Miocene project, held by Cornerstone's Chilean subsidiary Minera Cornerstone Chile Limitada (MCCL), is located in the Regions of Atacama and Antofagasta of northern Chile, and is targeting epithermal gold-silver and porphyry gold-copper deposits along the interpreted northern extension of the Maricunga magmatic belt which hosts several world-class gold deposits. The Miocene claims were selected using a proprietary data base licensed exclusively to Cornerstone, and we feel Miocene offers tremendous potential for discovery. Chile consistently ranks among the world's top mining jurisdictions."
Joint Ventured or Optioned Properties:
The Maricunga belt, hosts a number of world class epithermal gold-silver and porphyry gold-copper deposits. Although post-mineralization sediments and volcanics largely cover the Miocene project area, geological and geochemical data suggest that prospective Maricunga rocks underlie the area. Geological mapping, rock sampling and a ground magnetic survey have been completed. Planned exploration programs include an IP survey over the entire property, followed by trenching and drilling.
