U.S. Precious Metals, Inc. (OTCQB: USPR)  US Precious Metals, Inc. (USPR) Announces Completion of Geophysical Ground Surveying

U.S. Precious Metals, Inc. explores and develops precious and base metal properties in the U.S. and Mexico. The company was founded in 1998 and owns exclusive exploration and exploitation rights to approximately 37,000 acres of land in Michoacán, Mexico. Over the last number of months, U.S Precious Metals, Inc. has expanded on its exploration focus by acquiring Resource Technology Corp. USPR has embraced the newest technological advancements in ore refining by embracing Thermal processing which is set to revolutionize the way ore is processed in the future. USPR has also started extensive work via Satellite Imaging on its Mexican concessions. This will supplement the existing, more traditional data that has been accumulated over the years. U.S. Precious Metals was founded in 1998 and owns exclusive exploration and exploitation rights to approximately 37,000 acres of land in Michoacán, Mexico. The Solidaridad properties consist of eight concessions granted by the Mexican government for a period of 50 years.

U.S. Precious Metals, Inc.  is an exploration stage company engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of mineral resource properties. The Company focuses on gold and base mineral resource properties primarily located in the southern portion of the state of Michoácan, Mexico. The company owns exploration and exploitation rights to approximately 37,000 acres of land. All information available to the Company has been obtained from bore holes drilled by USPM and by the previous two companies that explored the property and analyzed under chain of custody by an independent laboratory.


The 17,000 hectare Solidaridad mining leases are held by U.S. Precious Metals of Mexico, a wholly owned subsidiary of U.S. Precious Metals, Inc. The Solidaridad properties include eight (8) concessions and have been granted to the subsidiary for 50 years. Titles to the concessions are maintained subject to an annual tax required by the Mexican government and paid twice a year.

USPR de Mexico acquired the property leases in 2003 after the initial exploration efforts by MIM, Esperanza Del Oro and Hot Springs Exploration in 1997-98. The previous exploration campaigns completed 21 drill holes totaling 3166 meters of R.C. drilling. An additional concession surrounding the Solidaridad concessions was obtained in 2006 by USPR of Mexico.

In 2008, USPR of Mexico began a 4000 meter drilling campaign to confirm, further explore and investigate the mineral resource potential. All drill cores were logged, cut and sampled. The core samples were shipped to a lab in the United States for assay. All data to include drill logs and assays have been digitized and plotted on maps. The mineral resource estimation provided by USPR of Mexico is based solely on the results of USPR drilling results.

Based on the results from the previous drilling campaign completed by USPR of Mexico, field mapping and sampling and petrographic results from polished section studies, a 10,000 meter drilling campaign is planned for 2010.


The deposit was discovered in August of 1995 by Esperanza Del Oro. A joint venture to explore the property was offered to Mount Isa Mines (MIM) by Esperanza Del Oro after the initial discovery. MIM drilled 11 holes and Hot Springs Gold Corporation drilled an additional 10 holes. Initial drilling of the property was completed in December of 1997-98 (early drill hole map). From the data collected by MIM, there is a potential gold resource of 308,000 ounces. In addition there is significant recoverable silver and copper.



The Solidaridad deposit is a gold, silver, copper deposit within Guerrero Terrain of southern Michoacan. Cross cutting quartz sulfide veins, currently characterized as mesothermal veins, are hosted within a sedimentary sequence of black shales, siltstones and quartzites consistent with a shallow marine continental margin of Pliocene Miocene age. Andesite sills are present within the sedimentary sequence. The sedimentary units unconformably overlie a porphyritic rhyolite of Miocene Oligocene age. Interpreted diorite intrusions have been mapped on the surface. To the south of the previously drilled "Main Zone" a massive sulfide deposit has been identified. The area, Cuendeo, is the focus of the 2010 drilling campaign. Petrographic studies have identified hypogene sulfides, predominantly pyrite and chalcopyrite



Three mineralized zones clustered near the ranch of La Sabila owned by Don Victorio Cardenas were identified by the early drilling: the North Zone, the Main Discovery Zone and Cuendeo, (2 km south of the Main Zone). Twelve holes are considered 'pay holes' with the drilling results and metal values shown in ounces per ton (opt) for gold and silver and percent for copper in Table 1. The Main Zone is 40 to 60 meters wide on the surface and approximately one km in length. 


Drilling of the La Sabila project began in February of 2008 by USPR. During 2008, Micro Tunnels, the drilling contractor hired by USPR, had two drills working six days per week and two shifts per day. The drilling continued through November, 2008 with 4000 meters of core drilled during the campaign. The core was transported to the Lab in Morelia where it was inventoried, washed and logged. Mineralized intercepts were split, sampled and shipped to an assay lab in the U.S. under Chain of Custody.

Mineral Processingyes

The first metal extraction tests were conducted for La Sabila in October, 2009. These tests were necessary as a proof of concept prior to mining on larger scales. The ore collected from a vein exposed on the surface was previously assayed at 0.062 ounces per ton gold, 17.3 ounces per ton silver and 7.16% copper. The ore samples are believed to contain the copper minerals chalcocite and chalcopyrite, the silver mineral acanthite, native gold and gold bearing pyrite. In addition, copper oxides are present. A silver bar produced in the laboratory was assayed by Chris Christopherson, Inc. of Kellogg Idaho ("CCI") for gold, silver and copper. The four inch long bar assayed by CCI ran 5.425 ounces per ton gold, 199.8 ounces per ton silver and 76.0% copper. American Analytical Services, Inc. of Wallace, Idaho completed the 41 element an.Metallurgical testing conducted at the Company's Morelia laboratory is under the direction of Carlos Becerra, a 25 year veteran of the mining industry in Mexico. Mr. Becerra, a chemist and metallurgist, is using industry standard techniques to concentrate the metals and create the bars. Different types of bars have been produced in the Company's laboratory: a copper sulfide bar which contains silver, gold and copper as well as bars of silver with copper and gold. This metallurgical testing and production of metal bars confirms to the Company that gold, silver and copper can be extracted. The Company intends to produce gold, silver and copper in its laboratory and duplicate the processes at the project site on a production


On March 13, 2003, USPR acquired Solidaridad I (175 hectares).
On March 27, 2003, USPR acquired the Solidaridad II (2,162 hectares) exploration concession from the Mexican government.
On July 22, 2003, exploration concessions for Solidaridad III, (294 hectares) and Solidaridad IV (149 hectares) were acquired.
On May 25, 2004, the company received the exploration concession from the Mexican government for Solidaridad V (La Ceiba, 921 hectares).
In February 2006, USPR claimed a gold mine concession lot named "La Sabila" (11,405 hectares) that surrounds the other concessions, bringing the total area under USPR"s control to 15,400 hectares (one hectare equals 2.47 acres).
In 2007, road improvements were made and a warehouse in Morelia was for drill core storage and analysis. Funding was acquired for a more thorough definition drilling campaign. Drilling began in early 2008. All legal obligations for the concession have been met and all fees and taxes are current.
A Chief geologist and metallurgist have been hired to continue the exploration and begin ore characterization. In addition, a contract geologist living in Morelia is working on the project full time. Chemical analysis and metallurgy is being conducted by Mike Floersch of Applied Minerals, Inc. In September 2008, an Environmental Impact Statement was approved so that a pilot plant for ore processing and deep core drilling can begin. In October 2009, a metals extraction test was performed on ore samples collected from a vein exposed on the surface.
Fourteen additional holes were drilled in the 2010 drilling campaign. A 2011 National Instruments 43-101 report was prepared independently by Michael Floersch (Applied Minerals, Inc.) and Betty Gibbs (Gibbs Associates) to describe results of exploratory drilling campaigns (2008 and 2010) and lay the groundwork for continued drilling and resource definition of the La Sabila property in southeastern Michoacán, Mexico.
