Blackrock is focused on its Nevada portfolio of properties consisting of low-sulfidation epithermal gold & silver projects located along on the established Northern Nevada Rift in north-central Nevada, and the Walker Lane trend in western Nevada. Our flagship Tonopah West property amasses the largest package of claims within the historic Tonopah silver district, one of the largest silver districts in North America. Blackrock is the first group to conduct modern exploration back to the district, targeting the historic workings for the first time since production shut down in the 1940’s due to low metals prices. Hole 1, from the ongoing 25,000m maiden drill program, returned multiple significant intercepts, including 3 metres grading 2,198 g/t silver equivalent, In addition to 29 metres grading 965 g/t silver equivalent. Assays are pending from additional holes from this ongoing program.
