Quartz Mountain Property

The Quartz Mountain property is located in an area associated with historic placer gold production (Perry Creek and tributaries) and thus actively prospected for bedrock sources of gold for many years. The property includes two small pits, Price Pit and Golden Egg, each of which had seen small production: 3,173 grams of gold and 5,194 grams of silver from Price Pit in the 1930s and 14,900 grams of gold and 13,400 grams of silver from Golden Egg Pit in 1973/74. Gold occurs within quartz veins which typically also carry minor base metal and iron sulfides.

In addition to gold mineralization, most recent study suggests that the mineralization and alteration features appear indicative of IOCG environment.
