- Bald Peak
Overview and Location
In August 2021, we completed the acquisition of the Bald Peak project, located in the well-known Aurora mining district in Mineral County, Nevada, and situated on a parallel structure to that which hosts the prolific open-pit Bodie, Aurora, and Borealis mines.
Prior to completing the acquisition, our technical team identified an extensive alteration system with multiple prospective areas stretching for over 6 km and beyond the Bald Peak property which led to the staking of additional claims extending towards Hecla Mining’s Aurora Mine.
As part of initial exploration, our team completed surface sampling and geological reconnaissance to test historic rock samples that returned grades of over 8 g/T of gold and significant silver values. The initial program included the completion of a Controlled Source Audio Magneto Telluric Survey (“CSAMT”) which identified what is believed to be silicification at depth in zones immediately below the gold bearing silicified outcrops.
Bald Peak has had no historic drilling completed, but with our positive CSAMT results and pending assays from surface samples, the next phase of progression for the project will be to obtain the necessary permits to conduct an initial drill program.
