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 Claims & Projects

Our Claim Groups

  • Black Mountain (BM)

    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.

  • Eastside Mine (EM)

    A mapping and soil sampling programme successfully identified intersecting mineralised fault corridors from satellite imagery. An IP survey has been completed.

  • Huntoon (HN)

    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.

  • Jack Springs (JS)

    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 (MJ)

    Great Western field surveys have doubled the potential mineralisation over 5 adjoining, historic gold and silver mines and drilling is underway as part of the 2022 work programme. The discovery of 51 spoil heaps from historic mine workings also gives Mineral Jackpot shorter term precious metals processing potential.

  • Olympic Gold (OG)

    In 2021 Great Western drilled a number of targets at Olympic, with encouraging results. Follow-up drilling, as part of the 2022 drilling programme, complete and now awaiting lab assays.

  • Rock House (RH)

    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 (TN)

    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.
