Abstract: 

Eminent Gold Corp was founded in 2020 with the vision of utilizing emerging science to develop precious metal targets by evaluating the geologic framework and untapped potential in new and historic districts across the Great Basin. By integrating a team of exploration veterans with successful gold discoveries with innovative and enthusiastic junior geos, Eminent is systematically advancing four projects to drill-ready stage on bold, new target concepts. Exploration assets include: the Hot Springs Range Project, Weepah, Spanish Moon, and Gilbert South.

The Hot Springs Range Project targets a Carlin-type gold system located at the northern portion of the Battle Mountain-Eureka Mineral Belt where key geologic features occur but have not been previously recognized or explored. The project is centered around exposures of prospective host rocks and an ideal structural framework of crustal scale faults that were reactivated during the Eocene-Miocene. Anomalous surface geochemistry consists of rock (up to 2.85 g/t Au) and soil (up to 465 ppb Au) that correspond to structural intersections of steeply dipping faults and the shallow Home Ranch thrust.

The Weepah Project focuses on a historic mine that exploited gold mineralization along a shear zone related vein system of likely mesothermal origin. Historic mining occurred by both underground and open pit methods, with the most recent open pit (1986-87) producing an average grade ore of 5.8 g/t Au. Insights from geologic mapping and surface geochemistry have identified that mineralization did not simply originate from Mesozoic-age mesothermal shear zone veins, but has been upgraded by Cenozoic reactivation of these structures that spatiotemporally corresponded with episodes of low sulfidation epithermal activity. Utilizing this newfound knowledge that the Walker-Lane related overprinting mineralizing system formed under different tectonics conditions than the shear zone did has produced numerous new targets that were obscured by intramontane basin-fill.

The Spanish Moon District Project targets a historic mining district that has been exceptionally well studied (e.g., a 1970’s Stanford PhD on metal zonation), but has experienced limited, modern exploration in unconsolidated, discrete portions of the District. Results from a surface program designed to provide the first modern, district-scale characterization of the complex mineral systems has identified four distinct, strongly mineralized domains, recently characterized by Eminent Gold.  A western, mesothermal silver and gold system, a west-central Molybdenum-base metal intrusion-related system, a central sediment-hosted gold system (legacy drilling intercepts up to 13.5 meters of 7.6 g/t Au), and an eastern (possibly epithermal) gold system predominately obscured by post-mineral volcanic cover.

The Gilbert South Project targets a historic mining district that has shallow-level widespread exposure of numerous low sulfidation epithermal systems (rock samples up to 30 g/t Au). With early results still incoming, multiple lines of evidence, including structural modelling, geochemistry, and spectroscopy indicate the project has the strong potential to host multiple bonanza veins previously unexploited by historic mining efforts. Here, an opening-mode fault (2.5 kms in strike length) on a right-stepping relay – one of the most ideal structural settings to host a vein system in the Walker Lane, spatially coincides with a >2 km long NH4+ anomaly (ammonium illite and buddingtonite) and multiple shallow-level vein exposures with Au in rock >7 g/t and up to 30.7 g/t along the structure’s entire mapped strike. Eminent Gold Corp is excited to wrap up our phase 1 efforts on these projects this year and advance to drilling in 2022.
