Selena is a Carlin-style gold project in White Pine County, Nevada. The project has similar alteration and host rocks to Alligator Ridge and Yankee (Kinross), Emigrant (Newmont), and North Bullion (Gold Standard Ventures). The underlying Guilmette Limestone hosts strongly anomalous gold mineralization in rock chip samples (n=68, max=6 ppm, avg=0.3 ppm) in rock chip samples from structurally-controlled alteration which cross-cuts stratigraphy.
EMX is targeting the projection of structurally controlled Carlin-style alteration into the reactive Pilot Shale that is untested and covered by what appears to be very thin pediment. Other gold geochemical anomalies identified by previous exploration are also untested on the property.
Note: The nearby mines and deposits in the region provide context for EMX's Project, which occurs in a similar geologic setting, but this is not necessarily indicative that the project hosts similar mineralization.
