We are exploring two key gold trends in Nevada, the world’s fifth largest gold province. Nevada currently produces about 80% of U.S. gold and 10% of gold worldwide. All of our projects are located in and around major gold and silver producers with operating mines and process facilities.
The Florida Canyon mine is located half way between Lovelock and Winnemucca, Nevada, and approximately 30 kilometres north of the Company’s Wilco, Lincoln Hill and Gold Ridge projects. The mine sits immediately adjacent to Interstate 80 and is located approximately 210 kilometres northeast of Reno, Nevada.
Rye Patch controls roughly 180 square kilometers (approximately 45,000 acres) and is exploring four properties on the Oreana Trend, where more than 10 million ounces of gold equivalent have been discovered since 2009. The trend runs Northeast, parralling Interstate 80 between Lovelock and Winnemucca, in North-central Nevada. The Oreana trend includes the Florida Canyon mine, and three advanced-stage exploration properties.
Rye Patch is exploring the Garden Gate Pass property covering 15 sq km on the Cortez Trend (a segment of the Battle Mountain/Eureka Trend) in central nevada. Rye Patch ground lies immediately south of Barrick’s massive land holdings that include the Pipeline and Cortez Hills mines and newly-discovered Red Hill and Goldrush deposits. One of the world’s most prolific gold belts, the Cortez Trend has generated more than 50 million ounces of gold discovered, mined and processed since since 1991.
