AMEx assays up to 0.58% Cu in polymetallic sample form La Cruzada.
Salta Capital, Salta Province– September 1, 2021 – Andes Mineral Exploration S.A. (“AMEx” or the “Company”), a Salta-based prospect generator and exploration com-pany focused on the Puna Plateau Prospective Region, announces positive results from geochemical analysis of float chip sample Nr. shipped to Alex Stewart Argentina Laboratory in Jujuy. The sample has been recovered during the June Expeditions to La Cruzada showing encouraging signs of significant mineralization when analyzed with pXRF.

“While one sample doesn’t say a whole lot about the geological potential of La Cruza-da overall, it does one thing: it confirmed the presence of polymetallic mineralization at surface. That’s the green light we were hoping for minimizing the risk of early fail-ure. AMEx has now decided to move forward and pursue La Cruzada as an exploration asset.”
Whole-sample assay (ICP multi-acid 39 elements and fire assay gold) returned anomalous values in the following order of selected metals:
La Cruzada is located about 14km SW from the Socompa high mountain International Pass (at about 3.900m (12,800ft) above the sea level) on the Argentinian-Chilean bor-der. The sample is a float chip rock sample and was taken on the southeastern flank of the Cerro Tecar.
