Through multiple mining claims and activities, Great Western Mining is proving itself to be one of the most important junior gold miners to watch. They have a vast exploration network, targeting gold from .5 to 1.5 oz. This includes searching at the Huntoon MIne, which consists of 119 full and 12 fractional claims, which cover a total area of 10 square kilometers. The Huntoon mine has a target range of 10,000 to 50,000 oz gold. The gold at the Huntoon Mine was discovered through extensive soil sampling.
Within Great WEstern Mining’s land, they they utilize historical areas that provide the opportunity for secondary recovery. While drilling on their land in 2021, they actually intersected an area of high gold grade.
In addition to the properties that Great Western Mining is already a part of, they are looking to add another – the Olympic Gold Project. The target for this claim is 450,000 to 1,250,000 ounces gold. They currently have a four year option to purchase here. The project includes fourty eight claims. The Olympic Gold Project is located approximately 50 miles from their current existing claims. Olympic Gold is located where two of the major gold trends intersect. While there are multiple targets across this claim group, the primary one is is Trafalgar Hill and the OMCO mine site.
Their initial drilling at this site in 2021 yielded encouraging results, and they do have more drilling planned. Drilling has provided evidence of an extension of the OMCO mine vein.
Great Western Mining is also involved with the Tun claim. The target range for the Tun claim is 5000 to 25000 ounces gold. At the present time, the work in the Tun claim consists of doing soil sampling in the iron oxide zone. There is also potential for the Tun project to become an underground large open pit project.
