The Wildhorse Gold Mine is lode mining property with a very long and well documented history. The mine was and has been worked solely by hand by Mr. and Ms. Mendhom using a single jack and working from 30-100 feet underground. Average recovery values are documented at a staggering one hundred and seventy (170) oz of gold and seven hundred and sixty (760) ounces of silver PER TON. The mine consists of a single shaft which is where all ores have been developed underground. There is also a small gravity mill that was used to process the ores prior to shipping to the US Mint.
A large cut exists to the west of the main shaft and there is stockpiled high grade gold ore on site from the cut. A 1973 report stated the ores averaged .86. oz/T in AU. Gold Rush Expeditions, Inc.®surveyors’ assay of the same material returned 1.33 oz. AU and 21.08 oz. AG per ton. The material appears concentrated but is the result of the convergence of several gold and silver bearing lodes on the property.
This is a very high value, high grade gold and silver deposit. It is set in the heart of the Seven Troughs district which has an excellent history of large producing gold and silver mines.
