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 had 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 many 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 operating mines mentioned above had histories of historical artisanal mining of high grade vein systems prior to modern exploration. By applying current day exploration techniques in these areas, these miners discovered much larger mineralized systems which are now being mined by bulk tonnage, open pit methods.
Colibri Resource Corporation has also experienced success exploring in highly mineralized areas with historical mine sites and intends to grow the mineral resources to a point where development decisions can be made.
The Company’s projects include: Pilar (Flagship – advanced exploration), Pitaya (JV with Agnico Eagle – advanced exploration), and Evelyn (early stage exploration).
