The Company recently announced that testing had concluded at the mine with the evaluation of 22 test holes spanning the 20-acre claim, including the famous Hogum Tunnel which historically, between the years of 1910 and 1940, had produced 5 million dollars in gold, a weight equivalent to 400 million at today's prices.

Mining in the Osceola District, White Pine County Nevada, was launched in the 1870s and continues to this day. Major efforts were put forth in the late 1800s, 1930s and 1970s with both lode and placer mining striking success with the removal of considerable amounts of gold. Studies conducted throughout these periods indicate economically viable amounts of gold in both the bedrock and the placer deposits that remain. For more information visit: http://www.nbmg.unr.edu/
