Divide Mine Project
The Divide Mine gold prospect is a Carlin-type target located in the Tuscarora Mountains of north-central Nevada, approximately 2 kilometers ESE from Crestview’s Rock Creek property. The Divide property consists of 19 unpatented lode mining claims around the historic Divide Mine.
The Rock Creek, Divide Mine, and Castile Mountain properties are all in the Tuscarora Mountains, located NE of the prolific Carlin Trend in Elko County, NV. The properties are in close proximity to major gold deposits on 3 sides, with Midas approximately 35 km to the WSW, Goldstrike approximately 45 km to the S, and Jerritt Canyon approximately 30 km to the East.
The Divide Mine sits on the eastern flank of a prominent upthrown block exposing sedimentary rocks surrounded by 40-million-year-old volcanic rocks. The sedimentary rocks exposed here are known to closely overlie favourable sedimentary gold mineralization host rocks in the region. Further, the age of the volcanic rocks is coincident with the age of gold and silver mineralization in the region. There is also evidence of intrusions on the property. Fault structures on the east edge of the host block provide conduits for multiple episodes of dikes as well as plumbing for the gold bearing mineral system.
