South Roberts Property
The South Roberts Project, Eureka County, Nevada lies on the Battle Mountain-Eureka trend of world class gold deposits, approximately 10 km. to the southeast of McEwen Mining’s Gold Bar Mine (Figure 1). The project targets concealed Carlin-type gold mineralization occurring along major crustal structures and hosted in favorable lower-plate carbonate stratigraphy. The project has been explored in two prior earn-in agreements with McEwen Mining (NYSE;TSX.V:MUX) and S2 Resources Ltd. (ASX:S2R). Both former partners explored the property with geophysics and drilling, and collectively completed 4 reverse circulation and 5 core holes. Drilling encountered collapse breccia textures, decalcification and minor silicification with anomalous arsenic, antimony, mercury and gold in upper plate siliciclastic rocks and at the unconformity between the Mississippian Webb Fm. and the Devonian Devils Gate Limestone, a favorable host horizon at the Rain deposit on the Carlin Trend and the nearby Afgan deposit. These results may represent a distal signature of Carlin-type mineralization on this contact. The most favorable Devonian host stratigraphy has not been adequately drill tested, and provides an opportunity for a world class discovery.
