 Title:  Exploring for Blind Epithermal Vein Systems at Spring Peak and Midas North

FOOD & BEER SPONSORS: LEGARZA EXPLORATION & IMDEX

Abstract:

Headwater Gold is currently exploring for high-grade epithermal Au-Ag veins across a large portfolio of projects in the western USA, with an emphasis on Nevada.  The Company is focused on large epithermal systems where the paleosurface remains at least partly intact and where potential remains for blind high-grade mineralization at depth.  In 2023 the company drilled a total of four properties, two of which adjoin past-producing high-grade vein deposits in well-known Nevada districts. Headwater’s Spring Peak project is located immediately south of the past-producing Aurora mine in Mineral County. Headwater completed 25 exploration holes for a total of 8,475 m in 2023. The Spring Peak program further defined a mineralized corridor which hosts a series of high-grade epithermal veins at depth discovered by Headwater in 2021 by drilling beneath a thick accumulation of unmineralized silica sinter at surface. Previous Headwater drilling intercepted multiple, discrete epithermal veins with textures indicative of boiling, including ginguro banding, silica replacement of lattice-bladed calcite and vein sediments.  Headwater’s Midas North project adjoins Hecla’s past-producing Midas Mine complex and covers a large hydrothermal alteration cell, extending at least 4 km in strike and 1 km in width with no known previous drilling.  Epithermal alteration at Midas North includes widespread zones of high-level chalcedonic to opaline silica flooding, clay alteration, local sinter formation, and fossilized geyser vents.  A maiden drill program totaling 4,202 m was completed in October, 2023.  Exploration at Spring Peak and Midas North is fully funded by Newmont Corporation pursuant to earn-in agreements announced on August 16, 2022.
