About Silver Dollar
The Silver Dollar project is 3344.68 hectares (33.4square kilometres) in area and it is situated within the historical Camborne mining camp dating from around the early 1900’s. A number of mineral showings and past-producing gold-silver-lead-zinc, and gold-silver prospects are in spatial proximity to the Camborne fault and occur over a distance of approximately twelve (12) kilometres.
In 1984, a drill hole on the Silver Dollar zone returned 2.10 metres grading 229.0 g/t silver, 1.0 g/t gram per tonne gold, 10.95 per cent zinc, 4.04 per cent lead and 0.29 per cent copper. Initial due diligence by Happy Creek in 2013 returned samples containing 50.30 g/t gold, 216 g/t silver and 4.49 g/t gold, 4496 g/t silver. Important base metal results include a 1.8 metre chip sample returning 16.8% zinc, 3.9% lead, 1.67 g/t gold and 241.0 g/t silver.
