About Bonanza Goldfields flagship project: The Tarantula Project is a contiguous block of over 500 acres of pre-1955, patented, private property claims and BLM claims in the Arizona Date Creek Mountains, containing both alluvial and mineralized quartz deposits. Bonanza's management strategy is to process feasible placer ore, while proving out hard rock structures. A Preliminary Geological Report of the claims and the immediate region is now being completed. Modern access for heavy equipment is already in place via Bonanza's privately constructed roads, and rail is localized. The claims are directly adjacent to the world famous historic Congress Mine, Arizona. The Congress Mine operated between 1887 and 1959 producing about 400,000 ounces of lode gold. Unique features appear ubiquitous throughout the immediate area, including greenstone dike extensions, deep placer gravel deposits, and vestiges of numerous pre-historic waterfalls. Additionally, lode gold possibilities exist due to the extensions of schist and mineralized quartz veins in the immediate area of the Congress Mine.
