El Tambo

New mines for a new world

Royal Road Minerals

The El Tambo project is located in the region of Cauca, approximately 22 Km west of Popayan.

The El Tambo titles cover a historic vein-controlled mining district which is hosted for the most part in tonalite of the California-stock. Individual veins are generally steeply-dipping and between 300-500m in strike length but in some cases extend over mapped distances in excess of 1.5 kilometers.

Vein thicknesses are generally less than a meter, but vein wall rocks are often mineralized and in some cases the composite mineralized structure extends over widths in excess of 5 meters. Vein structures generally grade over 30 grams per tonne gold (up to 147 grams per tonne) and wall rock zones range between 1-2 grams per tonne gold.
