North Battle Mountain
The North Battle Mountain Mineral Prospect is located in Lander County, Nevada, along the Northern Nevada Rift just north of the town of Battle Mountain which is a gold belt containing at least 8 million known ounces of gold.
The property consists of 72 unpatented lode mining claims and encompasses approximately 1,520 acres. The North Battle Mountain Mineral Prospect can be accessed from Battle Mountain by a paved county road for about 5.5 miles to the North Battle Mountain rail siding, and then by a graded gravel road from which an unimproved dirt road leads east to the north-central part of the property.
Geologic mapping, rock/soil geochemical sampling and gravity/CSAMT geophysics have been completed and drill targets have been identified.
Rock geochemical sampling and geologic mapping indicates well focused elevated metals and attendant alteration controlled by fault sets trending east-west, N30-60ºE and N20-50°W. In addition numerous outcropping dikes are noted on the property and may represent the surface expression of a buried, major intrusive body that has leaked metal-rich fluids along the noted faults and fractures. Gravity geophysical survey data revealed a strong gravity high located in the east-central part of the section that appears to support the intrusive theory.
