Buena Vista Hills Cobalt
The Buena Vista Hills Cobalt – IOCG project (“Project”) is situated approximately 35 km SE of Lovelock, Pershing County, Nevada, with excellent road access. The Project is centered around the past producing Segerstrom-Heizer iron ore open pit mine (“SH Mine”) that produced more than 1.2 million tons of iron ore between 1943 and 1966 (Nevada Bureau of Mines, Bulletin 89, Johnson, 1977). The SH Mine is approximately 200m x 180m and 45m deep with four additional smaller past operating open pits in the immediate vicinity. Historic open-pit reserves as reported by The Nevada Bureau of Mines, Bulletin 89 (1977) were estimated at 35 million tons with an average grade of 30% iron†.
The Project is primarily comprised of a full private section of land (Section 15, Township 25N, Range 34E covering 2.6 km2) complemented by an adjacent block of 12 claims on US Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) land to the north, covering an additional 0.8 km2.
Silver Dollar Property
The Silver Dollar project covers approximately 10 km of the 40 km long Camborne Fault System (CFS) and is 45 km southeast of Revelstoke, BC. The CFS hosts over 85 mineral deposits and showings, including 18 past producing historic mines of high grade gold & silver + lead and zinc.
Historically, small prospect “miners” exploited only mineralization observed in outcrop and most exploration was fragmented due to a multitude of small claim owners with competing interests. Explorex has assembled the district under its control to carry out a consistent and comprehensive exploration program to integrate historic data within a broader regional framework.
Due to the extent of the property and the diverse nature of mineralization, the project has been subdivided into 3 map segments: Gilman (southern), Mohawk (central) and Goldfinch (northern).
