Whiskey Project, Nevada
The Whiskey Project is comprised of 27 claims (540 acres) and located in Mineral County, Nevada, south of Hawthorne.
The property covers an area of bleached, silicified and opaline altered Tertiary intermediate volcanics. Gold mineralization is restricted to quartz stockwork zones on the west side and intensely silicified breccias on the east side. A strike length of over 17,000 feet is evident.
Historic work has been completed by Dennison, Santa Fe Minerals, Hanna, Combined Metals Reduction, Homestake, Degerstrom, WX Syndicate, Newmont and others. This work includes geologic mapping, geochemical sampling, and at least 47 reverse circulation holes.
Past work has identified 5 separate targets. Target 1 is located on the eastern portion of the claim group and includes three intensely silicified hills. Drilling in this are includes 120 feet grading 0.026 opt gold with a high of 5 feet grading 0.125 opt.
Target 2 is located on the west side of the property. Drilling in this area includes 5 feet of 0.06 opt and 90 feet grading 0.015 opt gold.
Target 3 is near the center of the claim group. A shaft and other old workings explored for mercury in the early part of the 20th century. No drilling has been conducted in this area.
Whiskey has direct drill targets based on drilling and surface geochem.
