The Culverwell Mineral property is an 80-acre lode property. The property contains a documented, producing gold and silver mine. The Culverwell Mine is located in Lincoln County, Nevada.
The mine has limited documentation of production but shows average values of 1.44 oz/T AU and 2.31 oz/T AG.
The mine was located by Mr. Charles Culverwell and Mr. William Culverwell in 1899. The mine was re-located by two miners in the resurgence of 1932 and documented production of 5 tons of ore containing 7.2 ounces of gold and 11.5 ounces of Silver.
Location and Access:
Located near Caliente, NV, this site requires high clearance 4WD.
The mine is noted for veins of quartz containing free-milling, or native, gold deposits. Silver, Lead and Zinc are also noted in assays, but are not noted for production value.
There are no blocked or inferred reserves despite the extensive underground development. The original locators of the mine are William and Charles Culverwell, brothers, who founded the town of Culverwell, which would later become Caliente.
The mine is noted for production of “wire gold” in iron-stained quartz.
60 lbs. of high-grade vein material with visible gold was sent for assay and returned a value of 22.9 oz/T in AU with only trace silver. It would indicate that the gold deposits, in quartz, has very little silver or other contaminates and could be crushed and washed as a way of processing with no chemicals needed.
It also indicates that working specifically on the veins which are showing gold deposition within the mine would be the most lucrative plan for a small miner or mining company.
