- Temehuaya covers 727 ha.
- The Temehuaya Area lies roughly 25 km east of Cobriza, although road access requires about 4 hours travel time.
- Geologically, the Temehuaya Area consists of tilted Lower Volcanic Complex andesites cut by several roughly parallel N35-50E (60NE) trending quartz veins and quartz veinlet stringer zones. At least two are 3-5m wide, and one reportedly runs to 8m in places. Gold grades are high, as are silver according to local gambusinos.
- Samples reported by Legerman (1976) yielded up to 2.6 g/T Au, 323 g/T Ag, 0.76% Zn, and 2% Cu. These are comparable with Tayoltita, and San Dimas District style veins would be the exploration target. Temehuaya is a very high quality undeveloped vein target are: potential is high, but infrastructure is poor (as it was at Tayoltita before Luismin moved in).
- Chip sample from portion of Temehuaya vein near middle of creek. Contains pyrite and spotty acanthite. Intended as portion of larger chip sample, but flash flooding prevented completing sample: Au: 148; Ag: 27.5; Pb: 217; Zn: 733; Cu: 440; As: <2; Sb: 1; Hg: 162
On the geological field exploration done with Primero Mining on Temehuaya this were the findings:
- Four samples taken. Values anomalous in Au and Ag. One with 77g/t Ag
