About the Sutter Gold Mine

The Sutter Gold project contains a 3.2-mile segment of the Mother Lode belt from which 10 historic mines produced 2.3 million ounces of gold. The historic mines bracket a one-mile-long portion of the Mother Lode belt with no historic gold production that contains the Lincoln and Comet zones. The Lincoln and Comet zones were "blind" discoveries that did not outcrop at surface and represent the first significant new gold discoveries made along the Mother Lode belt in the last 50 years. The Sutter Gold project has been the subject of considerable modern exploration activity, most of it centering on the Lincoln and Comet zones, which are adjacent to each other and together are referred to as the Lincoln project. A total of 85,085 feet of drilling has been accomplished in 190 diamond drill holes, and modern underground development consists of a 2,850-foot declined ramp with 2,400 feet of crosscuts and five raises. The historic gold production was documented in a detailed report completed by Mark Payne, the consulting geologist to Sutter Gold and a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101.
