Trans-Challis Fault Zone, Idaho
The Miller Mountain project is located in west-central Idaho and comprised of 238 unpatented mining claims covering 4,917 acres. The project covers an approximately 7.5-kilometer strike length of Idaho’s Trans-Challis fault zone. Miller Mountain hosts both residual and modern-day alluvial gold placers, as well as gold-bearing structures composed of up to 50 meters-wide quartz-sulfide veins and discrete silicified zones associated with weak to moderate sericitic-chloritic alteration. Multiple high-grade rock chips sample up to 27 g/t gold. Historic drilling intercepted up to 6.7 metres of 23.7 g/t gold. Miller Mountain also hosts historical resources at the Miller and Specimen mines. These vein and alteration assemblages form two distinct target types: 1) bulk tonnage, disseminated gold mineralization associated with near surface, quartz-sulfide veins and silicified zones and 2) higher-grade quartz vein-hosted gold zones.
