The Company has staked 13 claims on the east side of the old Aurum mining centre, 96km northeast of the major porphyry copper mining town of Ely in north-east Nevada.
In the 1950's the area was under the control of the Combined Metals Reduction Company, a large mining company in Nevada at that time. Their sampling of an old inclined adit on Tertiary's claims showed high grade copper in lenses in gossan associated with a porphyry dyke along a frontal fault zone on the east side of the Schellbourne Range.
In 1951 a shallow churn (percussion) dill hole was sited on the pediment to the east of the adit to test the down dip extension of this mineralisation and intersected copper mineralised limestone and porphyry beneath alluvium of the pediment slope. The 20.4m thickness of this sequence assayed 0.65% copper to the bottom of the hole at 77.7m depth. The hole therefore ended in mineralisation.
The Company is targeting disseminated replacement/porphyry copper mineralisation and preliminary field evaluation and sampling programme have been carried out.
A drill programme will be scheduled in the near future with the aim of confirming and extending at depth the copper mineralised drill intersection made in 1951.
