Peg Leg Polymetallic Project - Nevada, USA

The company has staked 4 mining claims 11km north of Tonopah in the San Antone Mineral Field. Historical workings comprise shallow shafts, trenches and bulldozer scrapes exploring contact metasomatic (skarn) deposits associated with the Frazier’s Well granodiorite.

Peg Leg was originally prospected for tungsten which occurs in grey marble. The Company’s reconnaissance sampling has confirmed the tungsten content in one skarn layer within the limestone where sampling across 11m width in an old shallow trench returned 11m at 0.22% tungsten.

Of greater interest, however, is an outcrop of mineralisation exposed adjacent to the granite contact which assayed 59 grammes/tonne (g/t) silver 1.4% copper, 2.4% lead and 1.8% zinc. The thickness of this outcropping mineralisation is not known as it is largely obscured by scree and old mine waste. The waste pile from a nearby shallow mine shaft contains material assaying up to 181 g/t silver, 3.9% copper, 10.1% lead and 1.2% zinc.

A Notice-level Permit Application has been submitted to enable a programme of trenching to expose and sample this mineralisation.
