San Antonio is situated approximately 80km south of Medellin in the Mid-Cauca Gold District. It was visited due to its proximity to one of the properties recently acquired (announced June 1, 2016).
San Antonio hosts a porphyry type, multiphase sheeted and stockwork quartz vein system. Management considers the geological setting to be similar to a number of the most significant gold-silver deposits in the Mid-Cauca Gold District.
Rugby's CEO, Paul Joyce stated, "San Antonio was discovered when our geologists were investigating an adjacent tertiary mineralized porphyry occurrence on a Rugby concession application. It appeared that the porphyry system was continuing onto the adjoining San Antonio concession.
Subsequent follow-up identified a potentially large, un-drilled gold porphyry target on a prominent hill. The scale of the target is impressive, appearing to be some 1,000 metres by 800 metres in size. It is surprising that such a target remains un-drilled. Importantly, there are no small scale gold mining activities currently being conducted at the site."
