Argentex Mining Corporation (TSXV: ATX; OTCQB: AGXMF) is a junior exploration resource company focused on advancing its Pinguino Silver/Gold Project in Santa Cruz, Argentina.
Argentex has assembled an impressive land portfolio in Argentina's Santa Cruz and Rio Negro provinces. In total, the company holds 100% mineral rights to more than 35 properties with over 307,981 acres (124,636 hectares) of land. Argentex's properties are located within two prominent geographical features, the Deseado and Somuncura Massifs, both of which have proven to host significant epithermal precious metal deposits. The large epithermal vein swarm at Pinguino contains Argentex's discovery of indium-enriched vein-hosted base metal mineralization, which represented a new deposit type for the region, as well as low sulphidation precious metal vein mineralization. The combination of these two types of mineralization within the same property is unique for the province of Santa Cruz and a significant milestone for the company.
