Coyote Resources Commences Drilling Program at Tonopah
The Tonopah Extension Mine is a formerly producing, silver-gold mine located in south-central Nevada, midway between Reno and Las Vegas. One of the points of interest on this property is the mill tailings that were mined in the early 1900s. When the Tonopah Extension Mine was in production, the mill would send the tailings, which are often rich in minerals, into drainage. This drainage, known as "Slime Wash," is now choked with historic tailings that may host a considerable amount of recoverable minerals.
In 2010, Telesto Inc., an environmental engineering and science company, carried out a surface sampling program on the Tonopah Slime Wash. Preliminary tests on samples taken from the tailings last summer showed between 19 ppm-88 ppm (0.55-2.57 troy ounces per ton) silver and 0.117 ppm-0.698 ppm (0.003-0.020 troy ounces per ton) gold. The ongoing auguring program, carried out by Coyote Resources, is intended to determine if silver, gold, and other minerals can be economically extracted through a heap leaching operation.
Coyote Resources' technical team has staked approximately 150 drill sites over a 75 acre area and is currently auguring holes on 100 foot centers. Approximately 150 holes will be drilled to a depth of 6-10ft. Once the holes have been drilled and samples have been collected, the samples will be sent for assaying to determine silver and gold values.
"The tailings project at the Tonopah Extension Mine could prove to be an economical way for Coyote Resources to reinstate development on the property," states Dr. Earl. W. Abbott, president and CEO of Coyote Resources. "We believe that by using modern technology, we may be able to recover a sizable amount of precious minerals from the tailings, which will help to generate revenue while we pursue larger deposits below the surface."
