The Vazashen gold-polymetallic project is located in Tavush, Republic of Armenia, 1.5-4.0 kilometers south-east from Vasashen village. The development site belongs to the southern part of Somkheti-Karabagh zone. It’s located on Alaverdi-Kapan tectonic zone, at 1000-1200 m. absolute height. The main tectonic-structural component is Tavush’s anticlinorium with some deep-situated breaches. They mostly have north-west and north-east transverse distribution. From the geological structure point of view, in the stratigraphic depth there are volcanic rocks dating from Jurassic to Paleogene periods. In the internal structure of veinal minerals several gold mineral veins are discovered, among them, quartz-pyrite, quartz-carbonate and quartz-carbonate-polymetal. Vazashen’s gold-polymetallic project, with its geochemical specificity, belongs to gold-sulphide formation. The gold deposit is extremely disproportionate to all directions. In the depth, however, the deposit of gold increases. Vazashen’s gold-polymetallic project is a project with a brilliant future potential.

Exploration Results By Soil Samples

Results of the geochemical survey are considered positive

  • According to the results,5 promising sites are identified for further exploration activities on finer scale 
  • Combination/correlation of all 4 commodities Zn-Au-Ag-Pb is clearly identifed in these sites
  • These areas are considered of high potential due to the usual spatial assotiation of numerous ore bodies in VHMS/VMS type mineralization system
