The Darby Flats Gold Project is located in Elko County approximately 65.2 km (40.5 miles) north of Wells in northeastern Nevada (see Figure 1). The Property, comprising 6 unpatented mining claims, is 100%-owned by NV Gold. Limited historical drilling conducted by AngloGold encountered 33.5 meters (110 feet) of anomalous gold and values up to 0.24 g/t Au accompanied by other pathfinder elements (Arsenic to 167 ppm and mercury up to 8.5 ppm). Only two drill holes have tested the Darby Flats target to date!
About the Darby Flats Gold Property:
Historical Work and Geology
- Major gold-mineralized fault zone (Darby Fault) greater than 2.5 kilometers in length.
- Exposed rock types: Silicified, gold-anomalous cherty siltstone footwall to Darby Fault, and argillized, pyritic Tertiary volcanics and decalcified silty limestone, high in mercury (8.5 ppm), hanging wall to fault (see Figure 2 & 3).
- Multiple rock chip samples of 0.1-0.4 g/t Au have been taken along the fault zone indicating a potential target at depth.
- Very limited historical exploration activities and only two drill holes have tested the structural target to date.
- Additional potential under thin volcanic cover.
