North Star is primarily covered with post mineral alluvium which would conceal a Carlin-type gold system. The key regional host strata and structures are interpreted to underlie the alluvium and have never been sampled or drill tested.
Dixie Flats has seen limited exploration activity in the past consisting of geophysical surveys and drilling. Dixie Flats is covered by post mineral alluvium, but historic drilling encountered key Mississippian carbonate rocks and Carlin type gold mineralization in the form of drill intercepts. The proximity to operating gold mines, underlain by similar geology, is believed to be an indicator of excellent prospectivity at Dixie Flats.
The North Star property comprises 56 claims encompassing 468 ha., and is located 6 km northeast of Pinion, and directly north of Gold Standards' Dark Star and North Dark Star gold deposits.
The Dixie Flats property comprises 324 claims encompassing 2,710 ha, and is located approximately 29 km southwest of Elko, Nevada. Dixie Flats sits approximately 2.5 km southeast of Newmont’s Emigrant Mine.
North Star is located on trend and directly north of Gold Standard's North Dark Star oxide gold discovery. It is a target-rich environment with key regional gold host units including the Webb, Devil's Gate, and the Dark Star Pennsylvania-Permian carbonate units. North Star has never been drill tested.
Dixie Flats is immediately to the southeast of Newmont's Emigrant Mine. It is a target-rich environment with key regional gold host units including the Webb, Devil's Gate, and the Dark Star Pennsylvania-Permian carbonate units. Dixie Flats contains significant gold intercepts in historic drilling that are open for expansion.
