Jerritt Canyon, the Company's flagship project, is located 50 miles from Elko in northern Nevada. The Company is currently focused on modernizing the milling facility and emission control systems. The Company is striving to reach a point of renewed profitability accompanied by a significantly reduced environmental impact. Ongoing permitting at Starvation Canyon, Nevada will allow the Company, in the future, to realize an increase in the production of gold ounces at Jerritt Canyon.
Presently in the Yukon Territory the Company is focussed on bringing its wholly owned Ketza River property back into production from the Manto Gold Zones and permitting is underway. The Ketza River Property includes the Ketza River mine, which, from 1987 to 1990, produced 98,000 oz of gold and by-product silver from 340,000 tons of ore. The Company aims to further explore the highly potential Shamrock Zone and Silver Valley, both in the Yukon.
