Rostock Ventures has acquired what management feels is a high impact gold prospect located in the Yukon, Canada. The property is approximately 3200 contiguous acres and has similar geological characteristics as recent gold discoveries in close proximity to this new prospect. This prospect lies within the globally prolific mining region call the Tintina Gold Belt. The Tintina Gold Belt hosts world-class deposits including Donlin Creek (29.3 M ozs Au Proven & Probable reserves), Fort Knox (3.8 M ounces P & P), Pogo (3.6 M ozs P & P), Dublin Gulch (2.7 M ozs Indicated resource); as well as past producers with remaining resources such as Brewery Creek (approximately 278,484 ozs produced, 145,000 ozs Indicated + 143,000 ozs Inferred Resources) and several advanced staged exploration projects including Freegold Mountain and Underworld’s White Gold.
Nevada ProspectThe McVicar Lode Mining Claim is comprised of one located claim with an area of 20 acres located in the Goodsprings (Yellow Pine) Mining District situated within the southwest corner of the State of Nevada, U.S.A. The McVicar Lode Mining Claim covers some former exploratoryworkings on a mineral showing.
The Yellow Pine Mining District, although less famous than many of the other mining districtsof the Great Basin, nevertheless ranks second only to Tonopah in total Nevada lead and zinc production. During World War I this district was one of the most productive mineral producers in the west; but by the end of World War II only a few mines remained in operation.
The region is also known for its historic production of lead, zinc, silver, and gold.
The favorable host rock for the indicated mineralization on the McVicar Lode Mining Claim is indicated as a limestone. Although information on the mineralization at the McVicar Mine is not known, the mineralization at the Root Mine within one mile to the northeast is reported as hydrozincite, calamine, and cerussite; galena occurs as residual pods in masses of cerussite. Production from the Root Mine is reported as 3,896,057 lbs of zinc, 858,055 lbs of lead 20,783 oz of silver, 44,002 lbs copper and 27 oz of gold.
