Location: Humboldt Co., T34N, R40E, Golconda Mining District
The geology of the property consists of the Pennsylvanian-Permian Pumpernickel Formation (undivided metavolanic rocks, sandstone, limey sandstone and chert) which is intruded by a body of Tertiary granodiorite.
While the property has seen very little exploration work, there has been a significant amount of extraction of hydrothermally controlled ore deposits in the Edna Mountains area. The area is also referred to as the Golconda District, the namesake for which is the Golconda mine.The Golconda Mine produced tungsten from a north-northeast striking vein system of a hot springs origin. Historic production for the mine is $2.3 million from intermittent production from the late 1800’s to 1952.With two large deposits nearby and the lack of modern exploration efforts on the property, Edna Mountain has significant “blue sky” potential for a significant discovery.
