Great Western has 8 distinct claim groups in Nevada targeting both precious metals and base metals. Please explore each claim group and use the table below to see the different stages of exploration and subsequent evolution. Feel free to contact us with any questions you might have and we will be happy to help.

EM Group

A mapping and soil sampling programme completed in June 2019 successfully identified intersecting mineralised fault corridors from satellite imagery.

The immediate future plan is undertake an IP (induced polarisation) geophysical survey, with a view to identifying potential buried sulphide orebodies in the claim area.

An IP survey is now scheduled.

Key Facts

  • High grade oxide copper ores were previously mined at Eastside Mine
  • IP (induced polarisation) geophysical survey scheduled
  • Likelihood of copper-porphyry style orebodies at depth

Exploration

A mapping and soil sampling programme completed in June 2019 successfully identified intersecting mineralised fault corridors from satellite imagery.

Two extensive northeast trending graben structures host Cu enriched soil anomalies and Cu quartz vein bearing fault breccias at surface.

Historical works as well as work by Great Western indicate the likelihood of copper-porphyry style orebodies at depth.

Immediate future plan is undertake an IP (induced polarisation) geophysical survey, with a view to identifying potential buried sulphide orebodies in the claim area.

An IP survey is now scheduled.

Geology

The historic Eastside Mine (“Eastside”) produced high grade oxide copper ores from shallow underground workings during World War One.

Conoco investigated Eastside as a copper porphyry prospect in the early 1970's, identifying mineralisation consisting of substantial copper (Cu) and molybdenum (Mo) values.

Historical northeast trending mineral workings at the Eastside Mine indicate a substantial mineralisation event.

The trend of the workings parallels regional scale normal faulting.

Photo imagery indicates the presence of crosscutting WNW-ESE strike slip faults, where the junctions between the opposing fault trends provide prospective traps for mineralisation.
