Spotted Owl Survey
Summa Silver completed several rounds of Mexican Spotted Owl surveys in the spring and summer of 2022 following U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Mexican Spotted Owl Survey Protocols.
The most significant finding is that no Mexican Spotted Owl nests or roosts were discovered or known to occur within 0.5 miles of the permitted exploration drilling area. Therefore, activities approved by the minimal impact exploration permit are not likely to result in adverse impact to the Mexican Spotted Owl.
Summa Silver will crease drilling operations and undertake its second year of Mexican Spotted Owl surveys during the 2023 nesting season for the Mexican Spotted Owl (March – August).
