Location and Access

In Grant County, NM this property can be accessed with High Clearance 2WD.


Copper averages 9% per ton and silver is averaged at 6.3 oz per ton. Gold occurs in sporadic high grade pockets. There are documented occurrences of Uranium but these deposits have not been mapped or defined.
The property, with its well documented rich material, has only been worked intermittently due to its remote location and access. All of which were major problems prior to 1950.

The property was most recently permitted for reworking of the tails at the mill in 2010. The mill dumps were reclaimed and the mine portals were gated. Open cuts and stopes were filled. There are an estimated 2,500’ of sub surface development. This has been mapped, documented and verified by Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc.® surveyors.

There are excellent county roads to the property which will allow for simple logistics. There is an old mill that dates back to 1929 and was built by ASCARO. It processed 200 tons per day.
