About Clanton Hills
The Clanton Hills property represents a unique opportunity for a near surface primary silver discovery with the potential to host a bulk tonnage silver resource. The property consists of 32 mineral claims located in Yuma County approximately 112 km west of Phoenix, Arizona. Historic mapping and sampling of the outcrop area has resulted in the identification of both high-grade silver values, up to 242 g/t silver from grab samples related to discrete quartz-carbonate vein/shear structures in the outcrop, as well as lower grade silver mineralization in brecciated wall rock with silica-carbonate matrix over substantial widths.
About Cold Springs
The Cold Springs gold-silver property is located in the western Great Basin of Nevada and covers high-grade epithermal gold-silver mineralization. It lies approximately 80km east of Fallon and is accessible by road. It covers an approximately 800m by 350m hill-top exposure of altered and silicified rhyodacite breccia which hosts a series of northwest-striking, sub-parallel gold and silver-bearing quartz veins. Previous sampling by Silver Range and others has yielded values of up to 64.9 g/t gold and 1,770 g/t silver from vein material.
