Initial development of the La Fortuna Mine occurred in the late 1800’s. Early accounts are often incomplete or conflicting. However, detailed surveys and sampling of the underground adits, drifts and stopes were completed in the latter quarter of the 1900s. The San Fernando Mining Company completed extensive drilling during the 1990s which forms the basis of the current drillhole database. In the late 2000s Castle Gold acquired the project and completed six (6) twin holes for the purposes of validating the data as part of a modern NI 43-101 compliant program. In May 2016 Mineral Alamos Inc. acquired the La Fortuna property from Argonaut Gold Inc.
The Minera team is extremely knowledgeable about the project from their past work at the La Fortuna site.
