Gold Express Mines acquired the Mineral Creek project via the Amador Purchase Agreement in 2020 and expanded the land package. During the fall of 2020, the Company did some limited sampling and a small geophysics program using IP revealing a deeply oxidized system which potentially indicates a large copper oxide and gold system.
The Company sampled the property for a second time in late spring of 2021 and results from these sample assays are pending.
The next phase of geophysics will be to employ magnetotellurics which is a method of using the earth’s natural magnetic field to measure conductivity at deep depths. This work will happen in the fall of 2022. The highly experienced firm of Durango Geophysics is managing and interpreting the geophysical work, and an expert on magnetotellurics has also been retained to assist.
The Company is planning to permit a drilling program with the aim of confirming the previous results of Viola Mac, testing results of the recent geophysics as well as the magnetotellurics results. Planning for the next twelve months is dependent on obtaining drill permits for the project from the U.S. Forest Service.
