Project Description

Project Location and Access

The Pioneer Project is located about 12 miles south of Globe, Arizona, on the south slope of the Pinal mountains, in the Pioneer Mining District, Gila County. Access is gained by a secondary road which connects with Highway 77 about 14 miles to the southeast and with Globe about the same distance to the North. 

The Pioneer Mine is at an elevation of about 4500 feet above sea level, the valleys surrounded by steep ridges with a relief of several hundred feet. The slopes are covered in most places with brush. 

Water is sufficiently available from springs and streams for drilling, milling and domestic use. The climate is good with mild winters and cool summers.

Geology, Mineralization and Exploration Plans

Historically the production came from mines located on the existing patented mining claims These patents are not part of the land package of the Company. The Company believes that the vein system (which consists of three sub-parallel veins and possibly other veins) extends off the patented claims to the northeast and other parallel veins are possible to the southeast and northwest. There is also evidence of a deeper copper porphyry system at depth which the Company intends to investigate with sampling, geophysics and ultimately drilling. 

The Pinal Mountains are essentially a highly metamorphosed sedimentary unit called the Pinal Salient, consisting in this area mainly of quartzite and quartz pebble conglomerate of the Dripping Springs formation. 

The sediments have been altered by the intrusion of granite, diorite (or monzonite) and diabase. The main intrusive mass is the coarse diorite or granite porphyry covering most of the area to the north. At the mine and closely as-sociated with the mineralized veins is an underlying monzonite stock. At the south end of the property a large mass of diabase intrudes along the east side of the hydrothermal alteration zone of the East Pioneer vein. 

The Company intends to further investigate with sampling and mapping programs and a geophysics program in early 2022.
