ATEX has initiated a grassroots exploration program focused on staking and exploration of high sulphidation precious metals deposits in northern Chile using techniques developed by ATEX’s management team which have proven successful with number of significant precious metal deposits having been discovered by the ATEX team.
Currently, ATEX has staked five properties which will be the focus of a first pass exploration program to determine if specific geological conditions are favourable to warrant more extensive exploration. If the conditions are not met, the claims will be allowed to expire.
Below is an example of the satellite spectrometry survey results which when combined with in-house analyses forms the basis of ATEX`s property selection criteria.
