The Tri-Metallic property is a small, copper and silver property that is cut on a variety of veins. Located within the general vicinity of the Bullfrog copper deposits, the Tri-Metallic property is largely undeveloped. The property is in the Cupric District which is known for a variety of metals and minerals.
The property consists of a number of shafts and a single adit. It is estimated the property has not been worked since 1910-1920 based on information and artifacts and mining development methods observed at the site.
The shafts at the site have deteriorated due to age and elements and will need to be rehabilitated before being safely usable. The adit on the property is solid and stable, cut into competent host rock. The adit contains a winze with well preserved wood working and cribbing.
There is a small stope in the adit that explores a wide vein of copper and silver and chases down the winze. Samples taken in the adit returns values as high as 7% copper and 22 ounces of silver per ton.
The property is easily accessed from the state highway. The roads to the site are well defined and would not require extensive work to bring equipment out for the development of the site.
The mine should be seen as a high value deposit that may expand in the future depending on the results of the development of the existing workings. This is a brownfield development with no milling operations. Ore that was cut out was obviously shipped off as it is not on site and there have been no milling operations conducted on or near the property.
The property is ideal for development by a small mining team as there would be good returns from the visible vein material in the current state. As the property is developed it could be expanded or offered to larger mining operations once the deposits have been mapped and blocked reserves can be quantified.
