Summary:

The silver-gold mineralization at Alamo Dorado is predominantly fracture-controlled and associated with moderate to intense pervasive silification. About 50 percent of the silver mineralization is related to strongly fractured rhyodacites and about 30 and 10 percent in the rhyolites and dacites, respectively. The main silver mineral at Alamo Dorado appears to be chlorargyrite which is a silver mineral derived from a silver chloride complex occurring along with the quartzpyrite minerals filling the fractures. The gold mineralization occurs as free, micron-size particles and/or in the crystal lattices of micro-crystalline pyrite.
