Timberline Resources explores for gold and copper on district scale properties in northern Nevada.
The Elder Creek and adjacent Paiute projects are district-scale porphyry copper-gold-molybdenum-silver exploration projects. Secondary structural-related gold targets are present on each property block and represent future sites of planned exploration. Primary resource targets include:
- Cu-Au porphyry:500MT to 1.0BT @ 0.5% – 0.8% Copper and 0.003-0.03 oz/ton (ppt) Gold
- Structural oxide gold: 750,000-1,000,000 oz. @ 0.025 – 0.04opt
The Elder Creek/Paiute property compares favorably in characteristics to many of the world’s great porphyry copper (gold) deposits including:
- Butte, Bingham, Refugio, Batu Hijau, Yerington, El Savador, El Teniente, Resolution, Ann Mason, Alumbrera, Morenci, Sierrita, and others.
Eureka is a Carlin-type gold project with historic open pit-heap leach production, and high-grade underground mining. The district scale property holds a NI43-101 gold resource which is open to expansion in all directions. Our primary exploration target is a multi-million oz gold deposit associated with recently recognized high-grade mineralization.
Our fourth project, Seven Troughs, is a low-sulphidation epithermal-type gold-silver deposit. Historic pre-World War II mining produced gold and silver at approximately 1 oz per ton Au, and 4 oz per ton Ag from narrow, high-grade veins. The target on this early-stage project is a bonanza-style gold-silver deposit representing on-trend and depth extension of historic mining.
