The Keystone project is a Carlin-type gold deposit exploration project located on Nevada’s Cortez Trend, one of the world’s most prolific gold mining trends and home to some of North America’s largest mines. The Keystone project is an under-explored, early-Tertiary (34.1+/-0.7 Ma), complex intrusive-centered, large gold-bearing hydrothermal system developed in domed permissive, lower-plate, carbonate host rocks. U.S. Gold Corp. has consolidated this entire prospective gold Cortez Trend district currently with 20 square miles of mineral rights control. This is the first time in history of the district that both the entire district has been consolidated by one company, and is being evaluated by systematic, comprehensive, model-driven exploration. U.S. Gold Corp.’s work to date on the project has illustrated many similarities between Keystone and some of the major mines on both the Cortez and Carlin Trends in Nevada – with evidence of similar stratigraphy, lithologic characteristics, structure, and alteration – factors important to the discovery of significant Carlin-type deposits.
