About the Newsboy Project

The Project comprises 7,160 acres of state, federal and private lands located 45 miles northwest of Phoenix, Arizona. Wickenburg and Morristown are located 10 miles and 3 miles respectively from the site. Approximately 1.2 million ounces of gold and 1 million ounces of silver have been produced within 25 miles of the Project from several historic mines, including the Vulture, Congress, Octave and Yarnell.

Newsboy area mine workings dating from 1915 include several short adits, trenches and shallow mine shafts. From 1940 to 1941 approximately 11,000 tons of ore averaging 0.07 ounces of gold and 8.1 ounces of silver per were surface mined from the main Newsboy deposit and shipped as flux to smelters in Arizona. Other production from the general area was not recorded but was minor. Below is a summary of all drilling on Project lands:
