EMX’s Rismyrliden project is located at the eastern end of the Skellefte VMS belt 30 Km west of Skellefteå. The east-west trending Skellefte VMS trend ends at a tectonic break where there is a north-south trending zone which is highly prospective for gold. This tectonic break is part of a lithospherical boundary which rheologically indicative of a deep-reaching structure corridor.  Rismyrliden is located just south of the most southern known Au occurrence in the Skellefte Au district. The geology consists of folded calc-silicate altered greenstones with quartz veining.  Zone of increased folding and veining are encouraging signs of concentrated tectonic deformation and more intensive fluid flow.

*Note: The nearby mine provide geologic context for EMX’s Project, but this is not necessarily indicative that the Project hosts similar tonnages or grades of mineralization
