Overwatch is a multi-ore, past producing lode mining claim, measuring 20.66 acres, located in Western Nevada, just outside the famous mining ghost town of Gold Point, NV. With over 1500+ feet of underground tunneling, it's just a stones throw away from the famous Wonder and Empress mines.  The gold-bearing ore in this mine appears to be micron sized, occurring as a clay-like intrusive deposited in the granite seams.

    There are also mining relics on the claim, old cans, timbers, remains of the old mill/site and cabin.  If you choose to the visit the claim you'll also want to take notice of the multiple cuts that did up to 6 feet deep, looking for additional vein material and strata levels.  It's an amazing view of the valley, close to town, fresh water -- with plenty of shade trees and room to work!

      Getting Started Mining at Overwatch

      Samples were taken along the vein system of the primary mine as well as from the tailing near the shaft.  Fire assays and XRF analysis was conducted by an accredited member of our staff professional assayer and metallurgist with over 15 years of mining experience.  Photos of where the samples were obtained are available in the gallery.

      All our samples are done starting with 28 grams of pulverized ore.  The fire assay procedure than utilizes a flux recipe that removes impurities from the ore leaving only precious metals.  We weigh the precious metal beads, and convert the measurement into ounces per ton.  Unlike other fire assayers that give you the results in parts-per-million, or parts-per-billion, we're bottom line kind of guys, and we want to know how much money a ton of ore is worth.

      Fire Assay Results:

      Sample 1: 0.00 oz/ton Gold, 0.68oz/ton Silver
      Sample 2:  0.10 oz/ton Gold, 1.08 oz/ton Silver
      Sample 3:  0.10 oz/ton Gold, 5.50 oz/ton Silver
      Sample 4:  0.20 oz/ton Gold, 3.25 oz/ton Silver
      Sample 5:  0.30 oz/ton Gold, 0.60 oz/ton Silver
      Sample 6:  1.25 oz/ton Gold, 10.25 oz/ton Silver

      XRF Analysis:

      Images of XRF readout were taken from two locations, sample site #2 and sample site #6.  Notice the low occurrence of iron which makes for easy free-milling and direct smelting as well as the universal presence of  Silver throughout the vein in addition to exceptionally high Gold content on an audit approximately 1000' from the portal.  Yes, there is gold and silver throughout the entire vein

        Buy Overwatch to mine high-grade ore directly from the remaining vein material, crush to 30 mesh minus and gravity separate in a sluice or trommel.  Gold is coarse enough to be gravity concentrated, however silver recovery would take an additional chemical process beyond the scope of this ad.
