Our chief endeavour is to identify underexplored mineral assets that have strong potential, perform exploration work needed to prove those resources, and to advance the resources to reserves and production through proper and environmentally sound development.
Island Mountain Gold Property, Island Mountain District, Elko County, Nevada, USA
This gold-silver property in Elko County in northeastern Nevada is our most advanced property. TUVERA currently holds 51% ownership in the property. Drilling (330 drill holes from 1982-2004) has progressed to the point that approximately 27,000 ounces Indicated and 483,000 oz Inferred historical gold resources (NI 43-101 compliant) are estimated. One of the largest placer deposits in Nevada (approx. 40,000 oz produced), along Coleman and Gold Creeks, was located immediately downstream of the Island Mountain project area.
The East Canyon project is located on the Utah-Nevada border, 40 miles north of Wendover, Utah (or 4 miles southeast of Tecoma, Nevada). A NI 43-101 compliant Technical Report by QP Harald Hoegberg of Denver, CO was completed in April 2012 for the property. The property is in the highly prospective Long Canyon Trend of gold deposits in northeastern Nevada and northwestern Utah. East Canyon is prospective for gold, silver, copper, lead, and zinc within the current land holdings.
The Blair silver-gold property was acquired in May 2013 and is in southwestern Utah in the Antelope Range mining district west of St, George, Utah. Both silver and gold mineralizations are known from past-producing small mines and historical drilling, but no compliant resources have been established yet. There also are base metal trends within the district and property.
