Ziggurat, Northumberland Trend, Nevada

Location

The Ziggurat gold property is located approximately 20 kilometers north of Round Mountain, Nevada, and comprises one contiguous block containing 343 unpatented lode mining claims, covering approximately 6,800 acres. All of the claims are within the Round Mountain-Northumberland Mining area in Nye County.

Previous geophysical and geological interpretations indicate that the Ziggurat property has favorable characteristics for Carlin-style gold mineralization.

Since the property is situated adjacent to other current gold mining properties such as Northumberland, Gold Hill, and Round Mountain, and the geologic structure and surface-mineralized host rocks appear very favorable, the Ziggurat property justifies additional exploration expenditure.

Additional drilling, geophysical and geological work is planned under a two-phase exploration program.

Exploration Goal

  • To identify a multi-million ounce open-pit gold mining resource.

Key Facts

  • The property has a National Instrument (NI) 43-101 technical report.
  • According this report, exploration focus at the Ziggurat property will be on Carlin-type mineralization, which typically occurs as finely dispersed sub-micron gold and some silver.
  • The properties are in the vicinity of the large Round Mountain (Kinross-Barrick), Gold Hill (Kinross-Barrick), and Northumberland (Fronteer Gold) gold mines.
