Athena Gold Corporation - this is a junior explorer with a very bright future in my opinion. They have a high grade oxide discovery in Nevada in the Walker-Lane trend. The property is called Excelsior Springs and is in an area in Nevada which has produced over 20 million ounces of gold.
Looking forward to more drill results asap, here is information on the property from their website:
GOLD EXPLORATION USING SMART SCIENCE AND THE NEWEST TECHNOLOGIES
We are a modern junior gold explorer currently advancing our Excelsior Springs Project in the heart of Nevada’s Walker Lane Gold Trend. Our committed and experienced Team are driven by the Comprehensive Exploration Strategy created to advance our flagship Excelsior Springs Project.
The company’s Excelsior Springs project is located in the prolific Walker-Lane tectonic zone, an area that hosts a number of large historic gold mines.
Total gold production form the Walker-Lane tectonic zone has exceeded 20 million ounces (“Moz”), including notable deposits by Goldfields (5 Moz), Bullfrog (2 Moz), Tonopah (2 Moz), Mineral Ridge (1.5 Moz) and Comstock (8 Moz Au, 200 Moz Ag). Readers are cautioned that the Company has no interest in or right to acquire any interest in any of the above mentioned properties, other than the Excelsior Springs project, and that the mineral deposits, and the results of any mining thereof, on adjacent or similar properties are not indicative of mineral deposits on the Excelsior Springs project or any potential exploitation thereof.
From the mid-1980s through 2011, a number of exploration companies conducted drilling programs, primarily on the patented claims, that began to define the near-surface Buster Mine gold zone. Gold mineralization at the Excelsior Springs project occurs within an east-west trending zone that is 200 to 400m wide and at least 3km long...
