Notes

This is a relatively developed project with significant infrastructure onsite including a 25-person camp, an airstrip, and a network of roads.  Deposits include Aurora Gulch as well as four historic gold mines; Mikado Mine, Summit Mine, Eneveloe Mine, and Little Squaw Mine.  A large placer mining operation is expected to begin in 2013 which will help fund the hardrock exploration at this site.  Permits for placer mining were obtained in July 2012.  The map location shows the largest airstrip and the mining camp.  In 2011 Goldrich Mining Co. also purchased a large block of leases called Thazzik Mountain, about 30 miles to the SE.
