20 Acre Lode Claim – Fitting Mining District – Mineral County, Nevada

Inventory Reduction Sale Price:$2,500.00

(Price Valid Until 9/28/2018)

The Green Talc Gold Mine is a sister mine to the Dover Mine. The two mines are often referred to together in documentation as the Dover and Green Talc. Historically small bits of free milling gold was mined and processed on site at the Green Talc Mine. These deposits were found in the heavily oxidized copper sulfide veins. The waste dump is substantial and indicates that a substantial amount of workings should exist. It is assumed that there are likely underground workings that are currently obscured.

There is a series of open pits and small prospects. This was reported in the 1937 and 1955 reports. The mine has not been actively worked since 1929 according to documentation. The mine was primarily worked for gold, which is noted as a secondary element of interest at the mine. Today it’s more of a higher priority.

There is good access to the mines via a county dirt road. It does require high clearance 4WD to access and may be subject to seasonal washouts. The road will need to be improved to facilitate larger dump trucks or heavy equipment.

The mines are noted for andalusite ores but Gold is and has been the primary element of interest at the mine. The gold in this mine is found in small particulates, most notably in columns of ore near quartz and oxidized copper deposits. The heavily oxidized copper bears a crumbling, almost talc-like appearance. It is likely that this is where the mine name was derived from. Gold will be processed from this mine by chemical separation. The gold being too small to be recovered by conventional methods.

There are a variety of buildings in states of disrepair on the claim. An old workshop, a large tipple with an office built on top. The office has collapsed but the tipple still stands. The claim is remote and at the end of a dead end road. There are no resources available on the claim, water, shade and other amenities will need to be addressed.

This claim should be considered for miners with some advanced knowledge of processing and separation. It is likely there will be a Notice of Operation required to profitably work the site. This claim would not be of benefit for Casual Use miners as the gold is not free milling and would be difficult if not impossible to separate without chemicals and mechanized processing methods.

This claim is part of the inventory reduction sale, valid only until September 28th 2018. These properties are discounted because they do not have a full GRMP-43 reporting. They may not have had an entire on the ground survey completed and/or have not been fully documented.

If these properties do not sale during the inventory reduction sale, they will be taken off the market and Gold Rush Expeditions will complete the GRMP-43’s and resurvey of the properties. The properties will then be offered at another date at a substantially higher price,
