Granite Creek Intersects High-grade Gold
Multiple levels have been developed on the Ogee Zone and the company said it continues to extend the decline to depth, with the goal of initiating access to the new South Pacific Zone that is located immediately below and to the north of the underground mine workings.
“Drilling in the Ogee Zone continues to intercept impressive high-grade mineralization over substantial widths,” said Tyler Hill, senior geologist for i-80. “Results so far have demonstrated that the Ogee Zone is comprised primarily of oxide mineralization, amenable to non-refractory processing. The Ogee and South Pacific Zones remain open at depth, providing substantial upside.”
The Granite Creek Property is strategically located near Nevada Gold Mines’ Turquoise Ridge and Twin Creeks mines at the north end of the Battle Mountain-Eureka Trend, at its intersection with the Getchell gold belt in Nevada. High-grade mineralization occurs in a near-identical geological setting as that at the multimillion- ounce Turquoise Ridge mine. The Granite Creek deposit remains open at depth and along strike from the existing underground workings.
