The mission is between two massive lively treasured metallic mining operations – Florida Canyon Mine (>5 million ounces gold) and Rochester Mine (>400 million ounces silver and >3 million ounces gold – and incorporates quite a few historic mine workings.
() (OTCMKTS:PXXXF) (FRA:PX0) has mobilised its discipline group to the Humboldt Vary Gold-Silver Challenge in Nevada with fieldwork, together with intensive geological mapping and rock-chip sampling, anticipated to start this week geared toward establishing drilling targets.
Humboldt Vary Challenge is between two large-scale lively mines – Florida Canyon gold mine and the Rochester silver-gold mine – and incorporates geology per bonanza-style epithermal gold-silver mineralisation and bulk mineable epithermal gold-silver mineralisation, each of that are well-known in Nevada.
The claims have been owned by the identical household for the reason that Fifties and really restricted exploration has been reported.
Establishing drilling targets
Earlier sampling, validated by PolarX, revealed extraordinarily excessive grades of gold and silver from the dumps of previous mine workings in each teams of claims.
This returned peak values as much as 3,384 g/t gold, 2,837 g/t silver, 22.9% lead and three.1% zinc.
The corporate plans to judge the size and continuity of the vein units and decide whether or not the altered rock between the veins incorporates economically viable grades of gold and silver amenable to bulk mining.
It will embody geological mapping, rock chip and channel sampling, soil sampling and can also embody floor or airborne geophysics.
Black Canyon and Fourth of July Declare Blocks, and proximal large-scale gold-silver mining operations.
Fieldwork will begin within the southern declare block, Fourth of July, and can initially give attention to recognized high-grade outcropping quartz veins the place the strike extent will probably be mapped and sampled.
This will probably be adopted by systematic soil sampling and geological mapping over the complete declare block.
An analogous program of vein mapping and sampling, soil sampling and geological mapping will then comply with within the Black Canyon claims additional to the north.
Drones will then be used to gather ultra-high-resolution orthophotography and digital terrain mapping.
