Located in Central Nicaragua its the bigges Gold deposit in the world known as "The giant gold systems" biger than Yanacocha in Peru.

I strongly believe that this area will be affected including the west area of Indio Maiz Biological Reserve that covers most of central south part of Nicaragua, this are cover most wild life and tremendous forest life.

The petition also calls to the Minister of Natural Resources Of Nicaragua
Marena and Ineter to stop the mining project and save this area,

About  Los Andes Mining;

Surface samples grading up to 2.5 grams per tonne gold within alunite-altered and silicified volcanic breccias, were collected by Caza during recent due diligence sampling. The property was previously held years ago by First Point Minerals, who conducted extensive surface rock sampling.

Detailed mapping and sampling of known highly anomalous gold mineralized zones will commence shortly and take about 6 months in order to identify high priority gold targets for drilling. A more general reconnaissance mapping and sampling program in 2011 will attempt to outline the overall extent of the epithermal gold and silver mineralization.

The agreement grants Caza an option to acquire a 100% interest in the Los Andes Property by spending US$2.97 million on exploration, making US$1.2 million in cash payments (US$45,000 paid on signing) and issuing 1.5 million common shares, over a 4 year period, subject to a 2% NSR production royalty, and regulatory and exchange approvals. A formal purchase opton agreement will be completed within 90 days.

Los Andes Geology

The geology of the Los Andes area consists of Miocene and Pliocene andesitic volcanics probably related to four calderas formed along a northeast trending belt. Northeast and WNW trending structural zones, with wide zones of silicification and argillic alteration. The Los Andes alteration zone measures about 12 kilometers long and 6 kilometers wide and is characterized by a field of felsic domes. Strong silicification, argillic alteration, alunite, iron oxide-rich hydrothermal breccias, and vuggy silica spatially related to the domes. The scale, geology and type of alteration are typical of a high sulfidation type gold system similar to several world class gold deposits such as Yanacocha, Peru.

The volcanic sequence consists of andesite to dacite flows and volcanoclastic units with possible rhyolitic flows, volcanoclastic units, and tuffs. Volcanic domes form a NE trend at least 10 km long in the Los Andes claim. Six strongly altered volcanic domes are located in the claim and are spatially related to the alteration and hydrothermal breccia zones. Argillic alteration with moderate to pervasive silicification covers more than 45 square kilometers with approximately 12 km of alteration strike length along the main NE structural zone and the WNW cross-faults control alteration up to 6 km wide. At least 1 large NE trending structure with strong alteration, parallel to the main structure hosts strong alteration. The primary NE and secondary WNW trending structures contain zones of quartz, vuggy silica, alunite, natroalunite, jarosite/goethite/hematite and clay (kaolinite, illite, and dickite) alteration. Many of the ridgetops on the southwest end of the alteration zone are capped by quartz-alunite alteration. Pervasive alunite-quartz altered rocks and hydrothermal breccias are well developed. The southwest end of the property has a variety of hydrothermal breccia pipes or brecciated structure zones contain altered volcanic fragments cemented by alunite-quartz, quartz-hematite, and hematite-alunite-quartz. Specular hematite locally occurs as disseminations, veins, or stockworks cutting pervasively altered quartz-alunite. Many breccia or fragmental volcanic clasts are argillized and/or silicified in a silicified matrix or groundmass.
