Welcome to Colibri Resources
Colibri Resource Corporation was formed with the explicit purpose to explore historical mining districts in Mexico. The company has the right to acquire up to 100% interest in 3 different projects in the State of Sonora. Each of these projects encompasses a former producing mine camp in excess of 3,000 hectares (6km x 5km). These districts all contain widely distributed mineralization that outcrops at the surface. Historical mining was done by following surface exposures of high grade vein systems underground. None of these mine camps have ever been explored by modern scientific geological and geophysical methods. In addition to these three claim blocks, Colibri owns 100% interest in 500 hectare claim located near three operating gold mines 50 kilometers north of the City of Caborca, Sonora.
In the State of Sonora there are several operating open pit, bulk tonnage mines in production; La Herradura ( owned by Penoles-Newmont), Piedras Verdes, (Frontera Copper), Mulatos, (Alamos Gold), El Chanate (AuRico Gold), Santa Elena (SilverCrest Mines), San Francisco (Timmins Gold), El Chanate (AuRico Gold), La Caridad, (Grupo Mexico), Cananea (Grupo Mexico), Milpillas (Penoles), Cerro Colorado (Goldgroup) and Alamo Dorado, (Pan American Silver). All of these mine districts had histories of prior mining of high grade vein systems.
By application of modern exploration techniques, much larger mineral systems were “discovered” that are now being mined by bulk tonnage, open pit methods. The “business model” of Colibri Resource Corporation is to explore historical mine sites. The company’s projects include; gold exploration prospects Pitaya – JV with Agnico Eagle, Pilar and Evelyn.
