Bravada Gold begins drilling at Wind Mountain
DRILLING IS under way at Bravada Gold Corp.’s 100-per-cent-owned low-sulphidation Wind Mountain project, a past-producing gold/silver property in northwestern Nevada. Two reverse circulation holes are planned, one approximately 450 metres deep and the other approximately 750 metres deep. The holes are designed to be proof-of-concept holes and additional holes may be added depending on drilling costs and results.
The holes will test two fault intersections, approximately 1,500 metres apart, that geological evidence indicates were upwelling (also called feeder) zones for the mineralization previously mined and the substantial remaining shallow gold/silver resource that the company has delineated. In addition to testing the fault intersections, both holes will intersect the unconformity between Mesozoic metasediments and Tertiary volcanic rocks. The contrast in physical properties of these rocks at the unconformity may have resulted in especially high grades of gold and silver being deposited, as has been found at many such deposits, including the Hishikari deposit in Japan and several low-sulphidation deposits in Nevada.
About Wind Mountain
The Wind Mountain property is in northwestern Nevada approximately 160 kilometres northeast of Reno in a sparsely populated region with excellent logistics, including county-maintained road access and a power line to the property. It is a histori--
cal past-producing, bulk-tonnage gold-silver mine. An independent resource estimate and preliminary economic evaluation for Wind Mountain commissioned by Bravada in 2012 reported 570,000 ounces of gold and 14.7 million ounces of silver in the indicated category, and 354,000 ounces of gold and 10.1 million ounces of silver in the inferred category.
