GSN FALL FIELD TRIP – OCTOBER 2-3, 2021

Signups for this field trip are now closed. Thank you for your interest

“The Silver State and More”

The 2021 GSN Fall Field Trip will visit three exploration projects, all former producers, as well as the Tonopah Historic Mining Park.  All the properties are easily accessible from the Highway # 95 corridor.

The first tour stop will be at the Candelaria property owned by Silver One Resources, about a 3/12 hour drive south of Reno  The Candelaria mine has a long history of production dating back to the 19th century.  Kinross was the last operator, producing 18 M oz (soluble) Ag and 65,000 oz (soluble) Au, prior to ceasing production in 1997.   A drill program is planned by Silver One to commence in early September, according to Raul Diaz, of Silver One.

After the Candelaria, tour, we will travel a short 45 minutes to Tonopah, where we have scheduled two hours at the Tonopah Historic Mining Park.  The park covers more than 100 acres and encompasses portions of four of the original mining companies’ claims including the Silver Top head frame.

After checking into either the Mizpah or Belvada hotels, we will dine at the Mizpah and have as our featured dinner speaker, Bill Howald of Blackrock Silver.   Bill will discuss recent developments on their property and if I am right, will make a few wry comments that should keep us well entertained.

After breakfast on Sunday morning, we will walk through the tombstones of Tonopah – Blackrock Silver’s property is that close to town.   Bill will continue to lend us his expertise will we examine core.

Our final stop of the day will be Pathfinder’s Hall copper/molybdenum property, 10 miles north of Tonopah.  John Mears of Pathfinder will provide pickup access to the open pit area while other tour members look at core, and at some point in the early afternoon, we will swap.

The field trip will commence at 7:00 AM from the DRI parking lot behind the GSN office on Raggio Parkway.  We will overnight in Tonopah and will return to Reno, arriving about 7:00 PM.  We have chartered a forty-eight passenger bus for this field trip.  Hard hats and steel-toed boots are mandatory for liability issues.

The Covid issue may still be with us.   Please note the GSN policy statement on Covid; stay safe and have a great time.
