Adjacent to Lincoln Hill Project
The Gold Ridge project adjoins the company’s Lincoln Hill project and likewise shows outstanding targets for both bulk-tonnage and high-grade underground mineralization. Rye Patch staked the Gold Ridge claims in 2007 based on the geological setting and strategic location near recent gold discoveries at the company’s Wilco Project, Barrick’s Spring Valley deposit and the nearby Rochester silver mine. The project is situated between Lincoln Hill on the east and the Wilco project to the west. As with Lincoln Hill, gold occurs on the Gold Ridge claim block within a number of distinct zones that remain largely open to expansion. The main target, Silver Ridge, is immediately adjacent and west of Lincoln Hill. The Silver Ridge targets show promise to add more ounces to the Oreana trend.
