The Lookout Mountain project is an advanced-stage gold property at the pre-feasibility level, strategically located within the southern portion of Nevada's productive Battle Mountain-Eureka gold trend. The property has an extensive exploration and drill history, including work, beginning in 1981, by Amselco, Barrick Gold, Echo Bay Exploration, Norse-Windfall Mining, and others. A total of 533 holes have been drilled at the project, totaling over 267, 000 feet.  The total land package, exceeding 15,000 acres, encompasses a 4-mile strike length of structurally and stratigraphically controlled gold mineralization. All outlined mineralized zones are open and require additional in-fill and step-out drilling in order to initiate a Timberline preliminary economic scoping study. Additionally, a number of identified drill targets will be tested for potential resource expansion.
