The Superstition Mountain Gold Property is located in Imperial County, California approximately 20 miles northwest of the town of El Centro. The gold prospect is situated along the western flank of the Superstition Mountains and consists of six unpatented lode claims on Bureau of Land Management ground, which are accessible by dirt roads.

About this Project
The property is situated along the Superstition Mountain fault, a major northwest-trending normal range front structure that marks the southwestern boundary of these low-lying mountains. Preliminary exploration conducted on the claims indicates that strongly anomalous gold occurs throughout a relatively large area within the claim block. Gold values from 53 to 746 ppb have been detected in strongly silicified sediments that occur along a parallel trend with the Superstition Mountain fault. One sample collected along a northeast-trending fault zone in altered granites assayed 0.821 opt gold. In addition, a significant pediment target exists along the range front fault adjacent to the gold-bearing outcrops.
