The Star Mineral Property is a one hundred (100) acre lode mining property located in the Harrison Pass district, outside of Elko, Nevada. The Star property, as it exists in this space, spans across the entire tungsten deposit in the canyon. Historically some of the edges of the deposits have been worked by small scale operations such as the Climax and the Slipper Mines, but in 1960, they were all brought together as the Star Mining Property.
Location and Access:
High clearance 2WD access
The value of the property is defined in the tungsten reserves, there are limited, blocked and measured reserves as well as implied and inferred deposits. There is also the noted presence of a large body of wolframite known to contain tungsten at an average of 2%.
The workings at the property consist of several main workings:
•The Main ore body is located at the Star Camp, it’s positioned on the north face of the hill and runs generally south west. A series of open stopes and adits account for 800+’ of subsurface workings at this deposit.
•The No. 7 ore body is the eastern most edge of the deposit and consists of a series of open stopes and trench workings. Subsurface is a total of less than 100’.
•The South ore body, is also known as the Climax Mine, consists of an adit that is 400’ in length, cutting into a series of mine workings including one large open stope. Total subsurface workings are less than 1000’ at this site.
•The South Shaft is the southern-most edge of the defined deposit. The shaft is 40’ deep and follows the bottom of the ore body for 600+/-‘. There is a load out and a small mining structure at this site.
•The Mill ore body is located on the north side of the canyon on a south facing slope. It contains a small adit and some open cuts which were likely open trenches at some point.
•The North ore body contains a single open cut that exposes the ore body. It is 30’ long and 10’ wide and exploratory in nature.
All of the subsurface workings show a good quantity of wolframite in the instance of tungstates and iron in quartz veins and bodies.
