San Martin Mine
The flagship property of Starcore International Mines is the San Martin gold and silver mine. The mine has been in operation since 1993 at 350tpd and currently operates at 850tpd. The mine was acquired by Starcore in February of 2008 from Goldcorp who had acquired the asset through the takeover of Wheaton River. The mine is an underground epithermal deposit with gold quartz based limestone and has an average gold grade of 2.31 grams and 18 grams of silver ( NI 43-101 2014 Dave Gunning, Joe Campbell). The historical production of the mine is over half a million ounces and the mine sits on 100% owned land package of 12,992 hectares, which offers the upside of exploration and the possibility of discovering the source of the current mineralization.
