Project summary and 2016 exploration program
The Railroad-Pinion Gold Project is the Company’s flagship project in North Central Nevada. The 100% owned/controlled project, covers approximately 115 km2 (30.4k acres) (see map below). The property is located within the prolific Carlin Trend, adjacent to Newmont’s Rain and Emigrant mines, and is 47 kilometers southwest of Elko. The Railroad-Pinion project encompasses the entire “Fourth Window” on the Carlin Trend (see map below). It encompasses a unique target-rich district which still remains predominantly untested. Gold Standard continues to explore and discover new gold zones throughout the property. The Company has prioritized four advanced targets for further work this year—the newly discovered North Dark Star/Dark Star, Pinion oxide-gold deposit, the classic Carlin style North Bullion deposit and the Bald Mountain oxide-gold and copper target. The Railroad-Pinion project also covers 14 km of the Bullion Fault Corridor, a major gold-mineralized north south trending structural corridor, which hosts both Pinion and North Bullion deposits. North Bullion occurs near the north end of the structure and the Pinion occurs at southern end, with multiple untested target areas in between. While Dark Star and North Dark Star are both hosted at the north of the 6 km Dark Star Structural Corridor, which is being further tested with this year’s drill program (Please see 2016 exploration program details below).
