About Goldplay Exploration Ltd.
Goldplay owns a +250 square km exploration portfolio in the Rosario Mining District, Sinaloa, Mexico. Goldplay is focused on exploration activities that include drilling, currently in progress at the El Habal Project, as well as a planned surface exploration program, drilling and resource expansion update at the recently acquired, advanced stage San Marcial Project.
The San Marcial Project consists of 1,250 hectares, located south of the La Rastra and Plomosas historical mines and 20 km from the Company's 100% owned El Habal Project in the historic (gold-silver) Rosario Mining District, Sinaloa, Mexico. San Marcial is an attractive near-surface high-grade silver, zinc and lead project with a historical National Instrument 43-101 – Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects ("NI 43-101") (1) resource with an immediate opportunity for resource expansion.
The El Habal Project is a drilling stage project with an ongoing core drilling program. The 1,000 m long oxidized gold mineralized zone outcrops along a series of rolling hills with evidence of historical shallow underground mining along an additional 5 km. The nearby historical Rosario Au-Ag Mine reportedly operated for 250 years. Goldplay's team has over 30 years' experience with senior roles in exploration, financing, and development in the mining industry, including over ten years of extensive exploration experience in the Rosario Mining District, leading to previous successful discoveries. A current NI 43-101 report on The El Habal Project is filed on SEDAR.
