Cyprium Mining Corporation (“Cyprium” or the “Company“) (TSX-V: CUG and CUG.DB) is pleased to announce that it has engaged International Mineral Development and Exploration Inc./Compañia Minera Cascabel S.A. de C.V. (“IMDEX/Cascabel“) as technical advisors for the development and exploration program at the Company’s Potosi silver mine located in the historic Santa Eulalia mining district located in the State of Chihuahua, Mexico. IMDEX-Cascabel is led by Dr. Peter Megaw, who is considered an expert on Carbonate Replacement Deposits (CRDs) of which the Santa Eulalia mining district is historically considered the world’s largest example. His doctoral work at the University of Arizona was a comprehensive study of the district and he is very familiar with the Potosi Mine.
Mr. Alain Lambert, Chairman and CEO of Cyprium stated: “Dr. Megaw is regarded as “the” expert on the geology of the Santa Eulalia district and the Potosi silver mine. He has had a relationship with the Valenzuela family for nearly 40 years and worked with some of our technical people in the 80s during his doctoral studies in the district. I look forward to Dr. Megaw supporting our underground exploration as well as helping us develop an exploration program for the balance of our property”.
Dr. Megaw commented: “The Potosi Mine is one of Mexico’s great historic mines and I am really looking forward to working there again to help Cyprium get her back into production”.
Dr. Megaw is certified as a Professional Geologist (CPG) by the American Institute of Professional Geologists and is an Arizona Registered Geologist. He is a co-founder of Mag Silver Corp and has more than 35 years of relevant experience focused on silver and gold exploration in Mexico. He and his team are credited with a number of mineral discoveries in Mexico including Excellon Resource’s Platosa Mine, and MAG Silver’s Juanicipio-Fresnillo, Zacatecas and Cinco de Mayo, Chihuahua properties. Dr. Megaw was awarded the Society of Mining Engineers 2012 Robert M. Dreyer Award for Excellence in Applied Economic Geology.
