Why Invest?

Great Western is a mineral exploration and development company operating in Nevada, USA. 8 distinct claim groups target both precious metals and base metals.

We have a gold exploration target ranging from 0.5m to 1.5m ounces from multiple prospects together with ongoing projects aiming to produce early gold and silver from historic mine workings.

We have a JORC compliant Indicated and Inferred copper Resource of 4.3 million tonnes at 0.45% where we are actively seeking a development partner. We are in touch with a number of companies known to be interested in copper deposits in Nevada.

Our investor presentation

Our Claim Groups

  • Black Mountain Group

    An Indicated and Inferred copper Resource (JORC) of 4.3 million tonnes at 0.45%. We are in touch with a number of companies known to be interested in the area as this project now requires a large development partner.

  • EM Group

    A mapping and soil sampling programme completed in June 2019 successfully identified intersecting mineralised fault corridors from satellite imagery. An IP survey is now scheduled.

  • Huntoon Group

    Soil sampling has shown gold, silver and copper to be present. 2018 drilling demonstrated grade-thicknesses, along with host lithologies, with many similarities to the mineralisation seen at the Black Mountain claims.

  • JS Group

    Both copper and gold targets identified through geophysical surveys, soil sampling, and mapping of mineralised veins on surface. Drilling in 2018 produced encouraging results with one hole hitting a large quartz-copper breccia vein at 106.2 metres, including 1.8m @ 0.74% Cu from 121m.

  • Mineral Jackpot Group

    Great Western field surveys have doubled the potential mineralisation over 5 adjoining, historic gold and silver mines and drilling is planned. The discovery of 51 spoil heaps from historic mine workings also gives Mineral Jackpot shorter term precious metals processing potential.

  • Olympic Gold

    A breakthrough was achieved in 2021 when Great Western’s drill programme established evidence of an extension of the OMCO Mine vein. Field work has also located a very large tailings heap, together with a significant stockpile of material which was never processed when the mine was in production.

  • Rock House Group

    A virgin area which has never previously been drilled or exploited with first drilling completed in 2021. Consists of 3 distinct targets. Drilling encountered gold at shallow depths in multiple holes at the Southern Alteration Zone.

  • Tun Group

    A mapping and rock sampling programme undertaken in 2019 identified multiple >2km strike length quartz veins and numerous historical adits including one with >300m drive length. The veins are up to 2m thick and have returned assays including 9.84 g/t Au, 4.99 g/t Au and 1.21 % Cu.
