Golden Arrow is a Vancouver-based explorer and prospect generator focused on identifying, acquiring and advancing precious and base metal discoveries with the goal of defining world class deposits.
Golden Arrow is a member of the Grosso Group, a management company specialized in resource exploration. The Grosso Group, headed by Joseph Grosso, believes strongly in the mineral potential of Argentina and has focused exploration efforts there since 1993 when the country opened to foreign investment. The Group's success at mineral discovery, as well as its achievements in community and government relations has made it a highly regarded and trusted explorer throughout Argentina.
Golden Arrow's core focus is on advancing its flagship Chinchillas Silver Project located in Jujuy Province. With a pipeline of high quality mineral projects totalling over 200,000 hectares and growing, the Company is well positioned to undertake systematic exploration, and attract superior joint venture partners, to define exceptional new deposits.
The Rosales Copper Project is 100% held by Golden Arrow. The Project has several priority target areas characterized by zones of near-surface copper stockwork mineralization, potentially related to larger mineralized systems at depth. Located in the prolific Atacama mining area of Region III, Chile, Rosales benefits from intensive local mining and exploration infrastructure.
[Golden Arrow cautions that proximity to a producing mine does not indicate that mineralization will occur in sufficient quantity or grade on Golden Arrow's property that would result in an economic extraction scenario.]

CABALLOS COPPER-GOLD PROJECT
Drill-ready project prospective for large porphyry copper-gold, and epithermal gold-silver deposits
The Caballos Copper-Gold Project covers over 12,000 hectares of a prospective porphyry copper and epithermal gold-silver district along the Chilean border in western La Rioja Province, Argentina, and was discovered and staked by Golden Arrow's technical team. An initial multi-discipline exploration program led to the discovery of a large copper-gold porphyry target, including a magnetic core measuring 300m x 800m. Outcrop sampling on the margin of the magnetic core zone encountered 12 metres averaging 2.4% copper within an 18 metre continuous chip sample. The coincidence of magnetic high, chargeability high, elevated gold and copper geochemistry and classic porphyry alteration combines to present a compelling copper gold porphyry drill target.
Strategically located in at intersection of two world-class mining districts
The property is located in a developing porphyry district at the intersection between the south end of the Maricunga Copper-Gold Belt with the northern extent of the El Indio Gold-Silver Belt. Advanced projects in the area include El Morro (65km SW with proven and probable reserves of 5.84 Moz Au & 4.36 Blbs Cu 1), Los Helados (22km to SW with indicated resources of 10.34 Blbs Cu, 6.65Moz Au & 52.40Moz Ag2) and Caserones (21km to the NW with 1.3 billion tonnes copper-moly3) on the Chilean side of the border and Josemaria (25km SW with indicated resource of 5.43 Blbs Cu & 5.5Moz Au2) and Filo del Sol in Argentina (38km to SW with intercepts including VRC 28 with 222m of 0.66% copper2).
The Caballos property is located in the Andean Cordillera with elevations ranging from 4,000m to 4,500m above sea level. A paved highway and good gravel roads allow easy access to the eastern part of the property and work can be conducted for 7 to 8 months of the year. The nearest small community is 100km away.
DON BOSCO COPPER-GOLD PROJECT
Large, accessible property with multiple copper, gold and silver targets
Golden Arrow's Don Bosco Copper-Gold Project totals over 4,300 hectares of exploration licenses covering five distinct target areas in western La Rioja Province, Argentina. The property is at elevations ranging from 2,500m to 3,500m above sea level. Work can be conducted all year round and a paved highway allows easy access to the southern part of the property.
Shares geological and structural settings with other large mineral deposits
Don Bosco is hosted in the same sedimentary belt as Yamana's Gualcamayo gold mine (2.2Moz Au proven and probable reserves1). Furthermore, the project is located on a major continental scale NW-SE structure that controls mineralization at Famatina in Argentina and Cerro Casale in Chile (reserves of 23 Moz Au and 5.8 Blbs Cu2).
MOGOTE COPPER-GOLD PROJECT
Golden Arrow's Mogote copper-gold-silver porphyry/epithermal project is centrally-located in the prolific Vicuna District of northern San Juan Province which includes NGEx Resources Inc's Josemaria copper-gold deposit in Argentina and Goldcorp Inc./New Gold's El Morro gold-copper porphyry deposit in Chile. Mogote covers multiple large porphyry/epithermal targets and hosts classic Andean-type porphyry copper-gold mineralization and related alteration associated with a Miocene diorite porphyry intrusive system.
PESCADO GOLD PROJECT
Golden Arrow has an exclusive right to the ~ 14,000 hectare Pescado gold project in eastern San Juan Province, Argentina. The project is located 10 kilometres south of the Gualcamayo gold mine. The property lies in the PreCordillera region with elevations ranging from 1500m to 2500m above sea level.
Detailed airborne magnetic surveys have identified two large intrusive bodies at the intersections of major regional faults within the project boundaries (Pescado and Yanso targets).
FRONTERA DISTRICT - POTRERILLOS GOLD-SILVER PROJECT
Strategic location in the prolific El Indio gold-silver belt
The Potrerillos gold-silver project is located in the world-class El Indio gold silver belt, just 8 km east of Barricks' Veladero gold mine and Pascua Lama project in western San Juan Province, Argentina. Golden Arrow has an exclusive right to the 3,999 hectare property.
Under-explored epithermal gold-silver target with multi-million ounce potential
The Panorama Ridge target hosts a structurally-controlled, outcropping mineralized quartz-calcite vein system traceable for 3 kilometres. Rock chip sampling returned samples with as much as 15 g/t gold and 2995 g/t silver. Strong silver, gold, copper, arsenic and mercury values in veins and breccias at Panorama Zone indicates the potential to discover epithermal multiphase hydrothermally altered precious metal deposits similar to Pascua Lama and Veladero. The target is underexplored, with only 508 metres of drilling in 3 holes.
Multiple additional drill-ready targets.
In addition to Panorama ridge, Golden Arrow has identified the drill targets Copper South, Fabiana and Narelle. Drill permits are in place.
