Fondaway Canyon is an advanced stage gold property located in the Churchill County, Nevada. The land package contains 136 unpatented lode claims. The property has a history of previous surface exploration and mining in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s.
Historic exploration at the Fondaway Canyon property established an indicated resources of 409,000 ounces of gold at an average grade of 6.18 g/t gold and Inferred resources of 660,000 ounces of gold at an average grade of 6.4 g/t gold, using a cut-off grade of 3.43 g/t gold.
This resource is an historic estimate and a qualified person for Canarc has not done sufficient work to classify the historic estimate as a current mineral resource. As a result the historic estimate is not being treated as a current mineral resource. Details of the historic gold resource can be found in the December 20, 2016 news release issued by Aorere Resources a New Zealand Exchange listed company.
The Fondaway Canyon mineralization is contained in a series of 12 steeply dipping en-echelon quartz- sulphide shears outcropping at surface and extending laterally over 1200m, with drill-proven depth extensions to > 400m.
Additional exploration targets include near-surface oxide gold along favorable structural and host rock targets and deeper extensions of the sulphide zones.
Dixie Comstock, also located in the Churchill County, Nevada, consists of 26 unpatented lode claims. It also has evidence of some historic mining but no records of production are available.
A historic 1991 geologic and mining study completed by Mine Development Associates of Reno, Nevada, in March 1991 estimated a historic mineable open pit deposit containing 102,000 ounces of gold from 980,000 tonnes grading 3.24 g/t Au at a cut-off grade of 0.34 g/t Au.
This resource is a historic estimate and a qualified person for Canarc has not done sufficient work to classify the historic estimate as a current mineral resource. As a result the historic estimate is not being treated as a current mineral resource.
Clear Trunk property is located in Pershing and Humboldt Counties, Nevada on 4500 acres of fee mineral and unpatented claims in the Sonoma Range, south of Winnemucca.
The property contains a small discovery of a sediment-hosted disseminated gold deposit from 40 drill holes. Intercepts included: Hole CLO4-5 = 26m at 0.38 g/t Au and 81m at 0.45g/t Au, Hole CLO4 -16 = 119m at 0.34 g/t Au, Hole CLO4-19 = 29m at 1.06 g/t Au and 11m at 1.13 g/t Au.
Identified exploration target include breccia pipes and quartz stockwork with untested gold anomalies and untested soil gold anomaly overlying intrusive host rock.
Bull Run property is located in Elko County, Nevada on two large patented claim groups of 500 acres near Jerritt Canyon.
Historic mining at the Bull Run mine developed 1 to 2 m wide quartz veins with 17 g/t Au before it closed in 1901.
A large quartz silver-gold vein system has been identified over a mile in length, 12 m wide, with silver grades from surface samples up to 685 g/t and up to 5.1 g/t gold.
Future exploration work has the potential for new gold and silver bonanza-grade discoveries.
Hot Springs Point property is located in Eureka County, Nevada on 160 acres of fee land on north end of the prolific Cortez Trend. Klondex Mining claims surround the project on three sides.
The property contains mafic dikes and sills with gold up to 3.4 g/t. Three shallow holes at north end of the property intercepted up to 1 g/t Au.
Jarbidge property is located in Elko County, Nevada on 8 patented claims along the east end of major gold veins in the Jarbidge mining district.
Veins that have historically produced over 400,000 ounces of gold strike directly onto the property and gold soil anomalies identified on the property need to be drill tested.
Lightning Tree property is located in Lemhi County, Idaho on 11 unpatented claims near the 300,000 oz gold Musgrove deposit.
The property has 3 quartz-adularia-gold veins that are 2 to 6 m wide and over 1200 m long hosted in Precambrian siltstone and rhyolite with historic surface samples up to 21 g/t Au.
Silver King property is located in Humboldt County, Nevada on 4 patented claims near Golconda Summit.
Historic samples have been collected from jasperoid veins with Silver values up to 480 g/t.
Previous exploration focused on low grade gold values but the property was never been explored for silver.
A&T property is located in Humboldt Co., Nevada on 2 patented claims on Winnemucca Mountain.
The property contains two veins and a quartz breccia in altered shale adjacent to intrusive dikes. Gold values grading up to 8.6 g/t have been collected in historic surface sampling of quartz veins.
Eimis property is located in Elko County, Nevada on one 20 acre patented claim adjacent to a new Coleman Canyon gold discovery by Arnevut Resources. Gold anomalies extend onto Eimis property.
Silver Peak property is located in Esmeralda County, Nevada on 2 patented (40 acre) mining claims. The property is surrounded by Scorpio Gold claim block at the currently operating Mineral Ridge mine.
Historic surface sampling has yielded 1-5 g/t gold from 1.5 to 9 m wide east-dipping shear zone in metamorphic rocks, similar to Mineral Ridge.
