CLOVER MOUNTAIN PROJECT LOCATION AND OVERVIEW
Located approximately 60 miles south west of Boise, Idaho the asset is a greenfield exploration project with drill-ready targets identified.
In 2008 and 2009, a soil geochemical program was completed consisting of 215 soil samples, indicating a gold anomalous area approximately 760’ x 230 meters with gold values ranging from 0.020ppm to 0.783 ppm, rock values ranging from 0.69 g/t to 4.3 g/t in stock-work quartz fracture filled veins.
Maximum base metal rock chip assays include 1.25% Cu and 1.54% Zn.
Jarbidge Trend Mineralization
From Southern Idaho into Northern Nevada
The Clover Mountain project is located near Integra Resources’ DeLamar gold-silver and War Eagle properties.
Eric Sprott’s Jerritt Canyon gold project is located at the southern end of the trend.
This under-explored trend hosts several multi-million ounce gold-silver and silver-gold deposits and a number of high grade poly metallic gold-silver-copper-zinc-lead deposits.
The DeLamar War Eagle, and Silver City underground mines were significant producers at the turn of the last century and DeLamar produced from open pits through the 1990s.
Program to Advance Clover Mountain
A large area of hydrothermally-altered, fractured, and brecciated intrusive igneous and extrusive volcanic rocks with elevated gold and related silver-arsenic-antimony-mercury-mineralization have been identified. Soils and rock chip samples suggest that a potential epithermal system associated with the northeast faults cutting the property, and base metals results indicate sulfide mineralization is associated with the north-south and similar structures.
To advance the property, a $133,000 Phase One exploration program is planned consisting geological mapping, prospecting, ground magnetic surveys, 650 trench and rock outcrop sampling, water sampling of seeps and structural analysis of the geology. Up to 2,000 feet of trenching is planned.
If results from the trench sampling and field mapping data confirm the current mineralization, geophysics and then drilling would be planned based on a new geologic assessment.
