Upstream from the Cross Creek 001 Claim lies numerous hard rock mines that were developed in the late 1800's such as the well documented Cross Mountain & Wahl mines that produced gold and silver with additional base metals of copper, iron, and lead.

This hard rock mining zone of mineralization is believed to be the main source of the gold deposition found on the Cross Creek 001 Placer.

Knowing the source of where the alluvial gold deposits initially originated from is superior information that the creeks below the mineralized vein structures have commercially viable qualities of Gold, Silver, and lead. Cross Creek is the main creek draining the lode sources and has proven to hold quality mineralization. Further, alluvial testing confirmed the presence of Gold, Silver, and Lead.
