The Indio property is located in the Department of Tinogasta, Catamarca Province, Northwest Argentina, within the Maricunga Metallogenic Belt. The Property consists of two non-contiguous blocks totaling five mineral concessions, Indio II, Indio III, Indio IV and Indio V, for a total of 9,119.28 ha.

The Maricunga Metallogenic Belt straddles the Chile-Argentina border and consists of a series of coalescing composite, latest Oligocene to Miocene andesitic to rhyolitic volcanic complexes and co-magmatic subvolcanic stocks that extend for 200 km along the western crest of the Andes.

The volcanic rocks, which host multiple associated porphyry gold ± copper and high sulphidation epithermal gold ± silver deposits, as well as numerous other smaller mineral occurrences, overlie older sedimentary and volcanic rocks of Mesozoic and Palaeozoic age. The Lobo-Marte gold porphyry deposit, the Refugio gold mine, the La Coipa gold-silver mine, and the Cerro Casale porphyry copper-gold deposit are located in the Maricunga Belt.

The value of a non-producing mineral property depends on its perceived potential for the existence and discovery of an economic mineral deposit. The potential in turn depends on a number of factors that must be considered when choosing market comparables. These comparability factors include such items as geology, mineralization, stage of exploration and results, mineral resources, location and geography.
