Uranium Hunter Enters into Joint Venture on the Eagle Nest Mining Propertyadmin
Uranium Hunter Corporation announced that it has entered into a Joint Venture Agreement to acquire 49% interest of the Eagle Nest Mining Property Claims located in La Paz County, Arizona from Sparrowtech Resources, Inc.
Mr. Reno Calabrigo, President stated “This joint venture agreement represents a diversification to include the precious metal industry and will provide the Company with increased growth opportunity within the current economy.”
Eagle Nest includes a previously producing Au-Cu-Ag-Fe (Gold, Copper, Silver and Iron) mine located 10 miles off Highway 95 in La Paz County, Arizona. Easy access to the mine site and a good water supply will facilitate ease of construction for a potential processing plant as well as expansion of the mine site.
Mineralization previously documented on Eagle Nest is very fine-grained to visible flaky gold, with oxidized copper ores and staining, in a linear, lenticular ore body with a steeply dipping fault zone cutting metamorphic Mesozoic, red, hematitic shale. Lenticular ore body formed from oxidation and enrichment was also found in the fault zone.
Previous workings include a 400 feet (121.92 meter) deep shaft and about 170 feet of drifts on the 100 level with some near-surface stopes. The previous mining operation on this property recorded historic productions of 1,050 tons of ore averaging about 1.07 ounces per ton gold, 1.8% copper and 2.1 ounces per ton silver.
