independence valley project
The Independence Valley Project is a comprised of 785 acres and located in Elko County, Nevada, about 77 miles south of the Company’s Golden Trail Project on the Long Canyon Gold Trend and about 29 miles south of Newmont’s Long Canyon Project. It is 100% owned by the Company and has no royalty obligations.
Independence Valley is also within the historical Spruce Mountain mining district which hosted many historic base and precious metals mines since the 1840's. Rhyolite and granitic intrusive rocks are found in almost all of these mines and intrude the mineralized structures at the same time as mineralization or just afterward.
The rhyolites could be considered the “Smoking Gun” for mineralization within the Spruce Mountain mining district and Independence Valley is centered on the largest untested rhyolite dome complex in the district.
IP geophysics is planned to identify drill targets within and around the rhyolite dome.
