Undervalued gold company in Mexico and investing in gold benefits: Investing in gold mining stocks is similar to investing in the stock market and the difference is just that gold mining stocks are related to the companies that are attached to gold mining. The performance of these stocks is more or less governed by the gold rates while other factors that should be considered are production cost, effective management, hedging activities etc. Investing in physical gold is the oldest method of making the gold investment. Whenever you buy gold, it is basically a gold investment. But, since we are speaking strictly on investment grounds, then there are two ways by which you can invest in gold i.e. Jewellery and Bars and coins.
Starcore International Mining and El Creston Property development news: The Copper Anomaly Zone is a 1000 metre long x up to 250 metre wide copper in rock anomaly as defined by the >0.05% Cu contour. The anomaly is underlain by mafic metamorphic complex rocks and diorite that locally have been variably fractured, argillic and chloritic altered. Within the zone, anomalous copper and silver values occur. Molybdenum values are low throughout. Chip sample results include composites of 18 and 27 metres respectfully averaging 0.210% Cu, 3.9 ppm Ag and 0.23% Cu with 4.7 ppm Ag. The Copper Anomaly Zone has not been drilled.

The Ajax Property occurs along the western margin of the Stikinia Terrane of the North America Cordillera, immediately adjacent to the eastern margin of the Coast Plutonic Complex. The property is underlain by Jurassic Hazelton Group rocks consisting primarily of argillaceous sediments and minor interbedded andesite tuffs that locally has been intruded by four closely spaced stocks of quartz monzonite porphyry. The Ajax deposit occupies a rectangular area approximately 650 m x 600 m that ranges in elevation from 425 masl to 1050 masl. The mineralization is predominantly pyrrhotite and lesser molybdenite that typically comprises less than 2% of the rock by volume. Molybdenite is typically associated with quartz and occurs in pyrrhotite-bearing veinlets, in thin stringers and on fracture and shear surfaces. Areas of elevated molybdenite grades (>0.060% Mo) are characterized by a high fracture density where quartz vein stockwork is well developed. Lower grade material (0.030 to 0.060 % Mo), is found in areas of weaker fracturing and forms a broad halo around the higher grade zones, especially below the 762 m elevation contour.
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 claim package of 12,992 hectares, which offers the upside of exploration and the possibility of discovering the source of the current mineralization.
