The Camp Bell Target

System Type:

Epithermal, high grade, banded, quartz veining, with scattered breccias and stockwork veining.

Strike-Length:

Camp Bell covers an area of 1,000 x 200 metres predominantly covered with a thin veneer of colluvium (gravel).

Resource: 

None at this time. 

Location:

The Camp Bell target is located immediately north of the Lost World target along the Gold Springs Wash on the Nevada side of the Gold Springs property. 

Drilling:

None at this time.

Geophysics:

The Camp Bell target is located along a large +5-kilometre-long, north-south trending high resistivity anomaly identified with the airborne ZTEM geophysical survey, which encompassess the Camp Bell, Thor, and North Jennie target areas.

Geology: 

The Camp Bell target is completely covered by colluvium with mineralized floats scattered throughout the 1,000 m x 200 m target area. Mineralized float consists of veins, breccia and stockwork some of which returned high-grade sample results >10 g/t gold. The target is defined by the Gold Springs Wash structural corridor which has a strike length of over 7 kilometres and runs north-south to north-east through the Camp Bell target area.  This structural corridor is known to host mineralization at other target areas on the property. 

Structural Geology:

The Camp Bell target is hosted along the Gold Springs Wash structural corridor. The corridor has a strike length of over 7 kilometers and runs north-south to north-east through the Camp Bell target. At the northern end of the Camp Bell target area the Gold Springs fault system jogs to the north-east for 3 kilometres before continuing north through the Juniper target where it is known to host mineralization.

Historical Mining: 

There are few historic pits within the Camp Bell target area. One USGS report from Perry 1976 describes a collapsed adit in the area. The Company attempted to uncover this at the described location, but it was never found.

Geochemistry:

Many high-grade samples have been collected by the Company from float consisting of veins, breccia and stockwork. These gold-barring samples range up to 145.68 g/t gold with 148.2 g/t silver and extend over an area of 1,000 x 200 metres. Recent surface sampling has produced the following results returning values greater than the resource cut-off grade of 0.25 g/t Au.  Previous sample results obtained by the Company area also presented below:
