The Company’s Pozz Project is an initiative to search for and acquire, at low-cost, deposits having potential for the production of natural pozzolan.
The production of cement is responsible for 5% of the global man-made carbon dioxide emissions with nearly one tonne of CO2 generated for each tonne of cement produced. Cement manufacturers are therefore under strong pressure to minimise their carbon footprint and the use of pozzolan as a partial replacement for Portland cement in cement and concrete mixes is one way in which this is being achieved.
In its raw form Diatomite is a valuable industrial rock formed by the accumulation in marine and fresh water lake environments of vast quantities of skeletal material from single-celled aquatic algae called diatoms.
The Company holds 109 claims over an area of 8 square kilometres on the border of Mineral and Nye counties in Nevada, 200km southeast of the city of Reno.
Nevada, also known as "The Silver State" has been, and continues to be, a prolific producer of silver. The historic Bay State Silver Mine is located in the Newark Mining District, 14km east of the town of Eureka in central Nevada. Eureka is on US Highway 50.
The historical mine workings of the Bay State Silver Mine are located in an east-west striking canyon (known as Mining Canyon) cutting though the eastern slopes of the Diamond Range.
The Company’s initial drilling programme found high-grade silver mineralisation in all three holes and follow up drilling is planned.
Nevada is the 4th largest gold producing area in the world.
In Nevada the Company holds a number of gold projects including the Newark, Junction and Stonewall projects. These are located on major gold trends including the Walker Lane and Battle Mountain-Eureka trends.
In Australia the Company holds the Baker's Project near Meekatharra in the Murchison Mining District of central Western Australia, 150 km east of the Company's Cue Diamond Project.
The Meekatharra Greenstone Belt has yielded over 5.5 million ounces of gold and contains a number of producing gold mines, including the Andy Well high-grade gold deposit. The Baker’s Project is strategically located in active exploration areas that are yielding significant gold and base metal discoveries.
Nevada is a re-emerging copper producer and a significant producer of industrial minerals. Mining in Nevada has strong local and State support.
The Company holds 24 claims on the Garfield Copper-Gold Project in the Walker Lane Mineral Belt covering a mineral discovery containing copper, gold and silver.
