Bullfrog Project, 120 miles NW of Las Vegas, NV

  • Collected and analyzed all relevant data. Interviewed three exploration managers that explored, discovered and developed the south half of the Bullfrog Mining District and produced 3 million ounces of gold from the mid-1980's through late 1990's.  
  • Developed and submitted an exploration program to the US Bureau of Land Management ("BLM").  
  • Evaluated land status.

Klondike Project, 35 miles NW of Eureka, NV

  • Examined the project in late 2011 and mid-2013.  
  • Entered an Option to Purchase and Royalty agreement in June 2012 on 64 lode mining claims.  
  • Located an additional 168 lode mining claims to cover all lands believed to have shallow and deep exploration potential mainly for silver but with potential by-product, lead, zinc, copper and barite mineralization.  
  • Thoroughly analyzed a 1977 geology report that defines several shallow exploration targets and projects a mineral inventory of more than 50 million tons. Developed an exploration program that is drill ready.  
  • Received approval from the BLM to drill 60 holes under a "Notice of Intent to Drill".

Acquisition Program

The Company continues to seek, examine and pursue quality acquisitions and business opportunities. Our objectives are to close selective deals that are financeable in the current market while growing the Company and adding value to our shareholders. Criteria for this initiative include projects having the following attributes:

  • Advanced status with significant tonnages and grades of resources and/or reserves that are compliant with Canadian and US mining standards.  
  • Financial performance projections deemed adequate to raise equity funding under current market conditions.  
  • Politically stable venues acceptable for performing exploration, development and production operations, primarily in North America.  
  • Gold and silver resources that may contain base metal by-products.

In this regard, current depressed metal prices have now developed better opportunities to make strategic acquisitions and build the Company. Notwithstanding, the Company may not be successful in completing or integrating such acquisitions or business opportunities.
