Nevada`s   Basin and Range

Nevada’s Basin and Range is one of the great metallogenic gold provinces of the world. Historic gold production from Nevada over the past 150 years totals about 175 million ounces, while proven and probable reserves at existing operations exceed 70 million ounces. In 2008 alone, Nevada was ranked as the world’s fourth-largest gold producing region, contributing 5.7 million ounces from 19 major gold operations. Exploration expenditures, as voluntarily reported to the Nevada Division of Mines, are in the $50 million per year range (probably closer to $70 million) while mine expansion expenditures came to $110 million in 2008.

Walker Lane Trend

The Walker Lane Trend has been largely overlooked since the last downturn in gold exploration that started in the mid-1990’s. The major producers and junior explorers have not come back to explore for the high grade bonanzas for which the Walker Lane is famous. Nevada will remain a prime gold mining and exploration region for decades if not centuries to come.

The Walker Lane shear zone straddles the border between Nevada and California and has a long history of exploration and mining, dating back to the discovery of the famous Comstock Lode in the late 1850s. The Walker Lane is notable for its numerous occurrences of volcanic-hosted epithermal gold and silver deposits.

The majority of gold deposits occur in the Walker Lane shear zone, which is a 100-km wide, NW-trending structural corridor extending southeast from Reno towards Las Vegas. This strike-slip system contains a series of deep-seated, right-lateral shears and associated normal faults. The rock outcrop is mostly Tertiary volcanics with an assortment of Mesozoic intrusions of mostly monzonitic or granodioritic composition. The basement is made up of strongly folded and thrusted Palaeozoic sedimentary rocks.
