- Carlin-type gold exploration property located in Nye County, Nevada, over 70 unpatented lode mining claims totaling 1400 acres
- Extensive grid rock chip sampling by previous exploration companies since 1980s identifies a large gold anomaly covering an area approximately 2.5 km x 3.0 km
- Total of 66 reverse circulation drill holes have been drilled to date on the property
- Only 20% of the historic holes were drilled to test gold in the brecciated dolomitized limestones, and mostly only with shallow vertical holes
- Canamex sees strong similarities between the gold-rich zones at the Long Canyon gold deposit, which occur primarily in dolomite breccias. Newmont Mining carried reserves and resources of 3.4 million ounces of gold at Long Canyon as of the end of 2015
- Potential new discovery opportunity, with the Silverton property, which clearly has potential, if the dolomite breccia thesis proves correct through exploration
- Exploration Strategy: Assess past historical data and drill hole assays. Assess similarities with the geology that hosts the Long Canyon gold deposit. Identify the best drill targets within the anomalous and untested dolomite breccias.
