Northern Lights, Nevada
The Northern Lights project is comprised of 23 unpatented claims (460 acres) located in Mineral County, Nevada.
The project has been explored by Tenneco, Westley Mines, Western Mining, Brancote and Bonaventure over the last 30 years. At least 17 holes are known to have been drilled. At least 8 of these holes encountered grades exceeding 0.35 g/t with best intervals between 1.2 and 1.7 g/t over 3 meter intervals. Best thickness reported is 55 meters grading 0.8 g/t by Western Mining. Additional work completed on the project includes a detailed ground magnetics survey, geologic mapping and ~90 surface samples.
Two primary targets appear to be present. The main target (Target 1) includes the bulk of the drilling. It is traceable on surface for 1000 meters and is identified by chalcedonic silicification of Tertiary felsic tuffs and volcanoclastics. Surface sampling in this area is generally between 0.1 and 0.8 g/t gold.
Target 2 includes white coxcomb quartz debris suggesting a northerly trending fault zone with 500 meters of strike. This material was found in place on the north side of the BT Hill. Samples of this material can run from 0.1 to 3.4 g/t gold. This target has not been tested.
A third target is a geophysical anomaly occurring in the basin between the above 2 targets. A magnetic low suggests alteration causing magnetite destruction and remains untested. It is approximately 1000 meters in diameter.
