Gabbs Gold & Copper Project (Nye County, Nevada, USA)
The Gabbs Property is located in the Fairplay Mining District on the southwest flank of the Paradise Range, about 9 km south-southwest of the town of Gabbs, Nye County, Nevada.
The property consists of 355 un patented lode claims and 1 patented lode claim which constitute a 28 km2 contiguous claim block.
The Gabbs Property is underlain by a stratigraphic sequence of intermediate volcanic rocks and shallow marine sediments intruded by a large mafic to ultramafic igneous complex comprised of dark green massive equigranular gabbro, melagabbro, pyroxenite, and peridotite. Monzonite bodies intrude the Permo-Triassic units and gabbroic complex. These intrusive bodies are extremely significant as they host porphyry style Au-Cu Mineralisation found at the Sullivan, Lucky Strike and Gold Ledge areas.
The Sullivan, Lucky Strike and Gold Ledge mineralized areas are considered to be probable apophysis of a larger feeder Cu-Ag porphyry system, which may lie beneath volcanic cover in a graben between Sullivan and the Gold Ledge areas.
To date it is calculated that the three mineralized areas contain up to 4 million oz of gold equivalent.
The Sullivan area is open to the west and north, Gold Ledge is open in all directions including depth, and the Lucky Strike area is open to the northeast and southwest.
Currently, the Gabbs project is permitted and bonded for an additional 30 drill holes within the mineralized areas which could increase the mineral resources significantly.
