Gold Chain Project

  • Historical data (1980s), including several phases of reverse circulation drilling, have identified broad zones of oxide gold mineralization, i.e. 0.5 to 1.6 g/t Au
  • Historic mines contain extensive exposures of mineralized quartz-calcite stockwork and breccia
  • Gold mineralization may be focused at the intersection of a regional detachment-type structure with steeper, northeast-trending normal faults and rhyolite dikes
  • The last exploration at Gold Chain was in 1990

The Plan

    • Permitting
    • Mapping & Sampling
    • Several tools have evolved to provide higher resolution including geophysics, geochemistry, alteration studies and advanced deposit modeling
    • Immediate goals include mapping and sampling which will be integrated with the historical drill data
    • Permitting for drilling is expected to be completed for potential drilling in the Fall of 2020
