The East Manhattan Wash Project
The East Manhattan Wash Project is an early-stage precious metals property located in Nye County, Nevada. The property has a geologic setting similar to active mines, historic deposits, and active exploration projects in the area.
The East Manhattan Wash property is situated 68 kilometers north northeast of Tonopah, and 320 kilometers southeast of Reno, Nevada. The property, which is in the southern part of the Toquima Range, straddles the margin of the Manhattan Caldera, a late Oligocene eruptive center of felsic to intermediate composition. The property is underlain by a sequence of Early Paleozoic sequence of shelf and slope carbonate to siliciclastic rocks on the caldera rim margin of intermediate to felsic volcanic rocks known to host nearby, significant gold and silver deposits and prospects in the Manhattan District approximately 9 kilometers east.
No mineral resource or reserve has been identified on the East Manhattan Wash Project properties. Exploration work completed to date by previous operators was limited. Better understanding of the project geology and mineralizing systems in the district is needed.
