Gold investment benefits and Starcore gold production Mexico? Although the U.S. dollar is one of the world’s most important reserve currencies, when the value of the dollar falls against other currencies as it did between 1998 and 2008, this often prompts people to flock to the security of gold, which raises gold prices . The price of gold nearly tripled between 1998 and 2008, reaching the $1,000-an-ounce milestone in early 2008 and nearly doubling between 2008 and 2012, hitting around the $1800-$1900 mark. The decline in the U.S. dollar occurred for a number of reasons, including the country’s large budget and trade deficits and a large increase in the money supply.

Therefore, one of the tools which are popular for this purpose is the financial investment which allows a person to multiply his savings by investing it into one of the multiple options available like mutual funds, real estate, gold etc.
Toiyabe contains at least two strongly mineralized fault zones with strong gold values on surface and in drilling. This evidence demonstrates the potential for gold-mineralizing fluids to travel from a deeper source through reactive, lower plate, carbonate rocks to the shallow mineralization encountered to date at Toiyabe. Several deeper drill holes have encountered low to moderate gold mineralization erratically distributed through comparable stratigraphy in nearby producing mines. Although the necessary structural complexities and traps required to host a large economic gold occurrence have yet to be encountered, a recent re-interpretation of stratigraphy and structure by Paul D. Noland indicates that this environment likely exists within the Toiyabe project boundary and may be responsible for at least some of the mineralization encountered within less favorable, upper plate lithologies.

The San Martin project is located 50 km east of the City of Querétaro in Querétaro State, and about 250km northwest of Mexico City. The city of Queretaro boasts a population of over 1 million people and is one of the safest states in Mexico. Major companies such as Bombardier Aerospace, Safran, Eurocopter, and Canada’s Héroux-Dvetek all have operations in Queretaro. In 1982, the area of San Martin was declared a National Reserve; however, by 1986, Luismin (previous owner) had reached an agreement to conduct exploration/exploitation in the area. Mining began in 1993 at 300 tpd and the production increased on a yearly basis to the present rate of 747 tpd with the capacity of 900 tpd.
Starcore International Mining and El Creston Property development news: In February 2015, Starcore International Mining, through its acquisition of Creston Moly Corp, acquired a 100% interest in the El Creston Property. The El Creston Property hosts a 5.5 km long x up to 1.5km wide trend of hydrothermal alteration in which several zones of molybdenum +/- copper +/- silver mineralization occur. At the El Creston Main/Red Hill Zone a significant resource of molybdenum and copper has been outlined. In addition, there are five other zones, Alejandra, A-37, Red Hill West, Red Hill Deep and the West Copper with potential to host significant resources of molybdenum and/or copper.
