|SLTA Gold mining in Argentina |
JUJUY, ARGENTINA--(Marketwired - Apr 2, 2013) - Dr. Fabio Montanari, President and CEO of Soltera Mining Corp. (SLTA) (www.solteramining.com), is pleased to announce that the 2012 field programs of bedrock sampling and geophysics on its El Torno property in Argentina produced very satisfactory results.
The 78 square kilometer El Torno property in the high Andes of northern Argentina contains a very large quartz vein system extending intermittently for 14 kilometers. Gold is found in narrow veins both within and outside this main system. The central parts have been worked since the Incas, resulting in about 1 km of underground galleries; and exploration programs in the late 1990s by mining companies, Penoles and Puma Minerals, concluded there is potential for 2 million ounces of gold to a depth of 400 meters (not NI 43-101 compliant.)
