The Bankroll Property covers the former Gold Ore Claims in the western portion of the Jessup Mining District in Churchill County. The property is readily accessible from I-80 at exit 78 (Jessup). The property is about 5 km west-southwest of the former town of Jessup and of the Jessup Deposit. This is currently owned by Torrent Gold Corp. and hosts a historic resource of 17 million tonnes with 275,000 oz Au and 3,934,000 oz Ag, at 0.501 gpt Au and 7.2 gpt Ag.
Work at Bankroll dates from 1911 according to NBMG records. The most significant workings on the property are at the Wednesday Mine where a 300-foot shaft investigated a sulphide-rich tuff on four levels. Historic assays of material from these and nearby workings have returned up to 22.90 g/t Au and 300 ppm Ag.
Silver Range believes there is potential at Bankroll to find significant stratabound low to intermediate sulphidation mineralization within permissive metavolcanic rocks, similar in character to what is found nearby at Jessup. Mineralization at Bankroll is hosted in Triassic-Jurassic metavolcanic rocks exposed in a small inlier or window covered by the property claims. There is potential to find additional mineralization beneath younger Tertiary cover rocks surrounding the claims.
Silver Range intends to conduct prospecting; sampling; geological & alteration mapping; soil geochemical surveys; and geophysical (IP) surveys at Bankroll to define drill targets and conclusively test this promising target.
