About Bonanza: Bonanza Goldfields' Tarantula Project is a contiguous block of 38 lode claims covering 600 acres in the Date Creek Mountains, Arizona. The lode claims are directly adjacent to the historic Congress Mine, Arizona. The Congress Mine produced about 400,000 ounces of lode gold. Highly prospective features are ubiquitous throughout the immediate area, including extensive greenstone dikes and quartz veins as well as placer gravel deposits. Many of the newly discovered Tarantula quartz veins are similar in character to the productive veins of the nearby Congress Mine and the other historically productive mines in the area. Bonanza's management strategy is to process feasible placer ore, while proving out hard rock structures. Modern access for heavy equipment is already in place via Bonanza's privately constructed roads, and rail is localized. A Preliminary Geological Report of the claims and the immediate region is completed.
