VERNON & SNOWSTORM

    vernon gold mine entrace

    This 20 acre gold lode mining claim is just outside of Lovelock, NV - and includes a unique ore type that includes Gold, Silver, Tungsten AND Uranium-308. The occurrence of Uranium-308 is not considering dangerous, nor of an economically significant grade.  Some samples test in the counts-per-minute range of 300 -500 CPM which would bring novelty to some collectors.  Assays show 1-3% of Uranium in this mine, found primarily in scheelite.

    However this mine is a historic past-producer of Gold and Silver along with values of Tungsten.  Last workings at the Vernon & Snowstorm mine were during 1984 where a small shipment of ore was sent to the local mill for its Tungsten and Gold values.

    The claim contains multiple prospects pits, an adit and a decline with over 200 feet of underground workings.  Good shoring and good dirt roads lead you up directly to the portal, and ore reserves on the claim.

    Primary values on this claim are found in the SCHEELITE ore type carrying economically significant amounts of Tungsten and Gold.  Tertiary values of Uranium-308 are also present in safe amounts.

    Geologic structures

    Type of structure Plutonic Rock > Pegmatite
    Structure description Granitic Rock Altered Along Quartz Veins
    Comments on vein and structure: It appears that significant known quantities of vein material are still present in the mine.  Multipe adits, bulldozer cuts and and a decline follow a system of irregular quartz and granite veins in Metamorphic Rock > Metasedimentary.  In addition to the ore in the tailings pile, additional work can be done on this gold mine to further expand on the vein system which takes a N-S strike, 70-90 E dip.  Good shoring still in place at the main entrance, and some caved in sections along the decline.
