Background & Plans

The Bullion Mountain property lies on the Battle Mountain trend, within view of both the Pipeline and Cortez gold mines.

On September 7, 2011, Barrick announced a new discovery 24 kilometers southeast of Pipeline which highlights the continued potential of the region. West Kirkland has since commenced drilling a deep, 1,200-meter hole at Bullion Mountain targeting the north-south structures projected from the Pipeline mine, and the potential flat Roberts Mountain thrust structures that control gold deposits in the region (see aerial photo and ground photo below).

The Bullion Mountain property features upper plate rocks of the Vinini Sandstone thrust over Slaven Chert intruded by a Granite Peak stock. Multiple targets related to thrusting and the intrusion exists on the property plus there is deep potential for Lower Plate rocks which host the nearby Pipeline Deposit.
