The Laopandao exploration area covers 44.88 square kilometers and is located approximately 650 kilometers north by northeast of Beijing in Chifeng, Inner Mongolia

Mineralization zones have been identified in the northern, central, and southern portions of the exploration area. The most significant recent discovery was the existence of Ag-Sn-Cu-Pb mineralization on the peripheries of a previously identified tin mineralized zone. The mineralization is mainly a continental volcanic-sedimentary rock altered strata-bound mineral type.

Silver Dragon and its Chinese Joint Venture partners have completed a major surface and underground exploration program at Laopandao during the 2010 exploration season. Since 2006, a total of 7,174 surface trenching, 14,632 metres of diamond drilling, 2,514 metres of underground exploration-development (tunneling) has been completed to help define the resource potential on the property culminating in the preparation of a preliminary assessment.

The Company has retained Southampton Associates Inc. of Toronto, Canada, to prepare a National Instrument 43-101 report on the Laopandao Property

Project Details


Silver Dragon Resources Inc. owns 40% of Sino-Top Resources & Technologies, Ltd. which owns 100% of the Laopandao Beihou Silver Project located in the Erbahuo Silver District approximately 13 km to the north of the Reshui Town of Keshiketeng County in Inner Mongolia covering a total area of 44.88 km2.

The rocks found in the region are primarily acidic volcanic rocks and tuffaceous sandstone of Permian age and Continental volcanic eruption acidic lavas and clasolite of the Upper Jurassic Manketouebo formation as well as acidic lava and tuff. The faults are in a northwest direction.

The anomalies are mainly silver anomalies in the southern, central and northern parts of the region. Altered fracture zones can be found, with a length of 580 meters and width of 3 meters. Silver, Copper, Zinc, Tin, Molybdenum and arsenic anomalies have been identified.

Alteration takes the form of chlorite, tourmaline, quartz, sericite and fluorite. There are 37 mineralized zones, with lengths of up to 164 meters and varying widths.
