The recent skyrocketing prices of gold and silver bode well for opportunities in the precious metals and mining sectors. Gold is a universal currency and silver is an essential component in cell phones, computers, pacemakers, and other consumer products.


El Capitan has produced and sold Dore’ bars from concentrate on two separate occasions, each containing over 41 OPT of silver and .19 OPT of gold. These were not assay results, but actual production recovery results. ECPN also produced similar results from nine, one-pound samples from concentrates.

The OPT (ounces-per-ton) is one of the commonly used criteria to determine the potential value of a mineral property. The company is not representing that any of the previously stated test results, or the Dore’ bars, are consistent throughout this property.

El Capitan Precious Metals has conducted considerable research and testing on this property. El Capitan is in the process of preparing the final presentation to support its sale of the property by the company’s investment bank previously named.
