6. Gold Standard Ventures (TSXV:GSV)
; current price: $1.33; year-to-date gain: 80.00 percent; 52-week high: $3.03.
Gold Standard owns the Railroad gold project, which is located within Nevada's Carlin Trend and near Newmont Mining's (NYSE:NEM) Rain and Emigrant mines. In May, GSV announced that it had intersected 164 meters of 3.38 g/t gold, including 42.7 meters of 9.4 g/t gold, at the Railroad project. The drill results confirmed and expanded the potential of a major deposit at the company's target. GSV conducted a geophysical survey on a portion of the North Bullion Fault Zone (NBFZ) at Railroad to outline the company's primary target.
“The NBFZ target appears to be a quite well-defined large “sliver” of prospective clastic and carbonate rock units up to about 1200 feet wide and about 1 mile long between two major anastomosing fault boundaries. A portion of this target coincides with the best gold grades drilled to date,” according to the company's press release.
The company continues to make progress at Railroad, and recently announced the approval of its plan of operation. In November, GSV announced the acquisition of additional interest in the Pinon gold deposit, which is located south of its flagship property.
