Horse Mtn - Mill Creek Gold Project
Lower plate target with high-grade historic hits by Barrick
Adjoins active Nevada Gold Mines gold exploration project on north and south sides, and widespread historical drilling shows gold mineralization trends southward from Nevada Gold Mine’s claims onto NV King’s ground.
Deeper holes penetrated the Roberts Mountain Thrust and encountered significant gold and tracer element concentrations in lower plate carbonates.
Core hole BHM-001 drilled by Barrick in 2005 hit
- 30m grading 0.772g/t at 282m-312m in rock identified by Barrick as Roberts Mountain Formation, including 2.29m @ 3.17g/t at 297.8m-300.2m.
- Arsenic averaged 1,140ppm while mercury averaged 4.40ppm.*
Other Lower Plate hits include
- BHM-003 (18.3m averaging 0.364g/t at 336.9m-355.2m) and BHM-005 (29m grading 0.238g/t at 623.4m-652.4m).
