We are exploring two key gold trends in Nevada, the world's fifth largest gold province. Nevada currently produces about 80% of U.S. gold and 10% of gold worldwide. All of our projects are located in and around major gold and silver producers with operating mines and process facilities.
Rye Patch has amassed a significant NI 43-101 inventory of gold and silver resources on the Oreana Trend.
Rye Patch controls roughly 11,000 hectares (27,200 acres) and is exploring four properties on the Oreana Trend, where more than 10M ounces of gold equivalent have been discovered since 2009. The Oreana trend includes three active mines and three advanced-stage exploration properties.
Rye Patch is exploring two properties covering 65 sq km on the Cortez Trend (a segment of the Battle Mountain/Eureka Trend). Rye Patch ground lies immediately south of Barrick's massive land holdings that include the Pipeline and Cortez Hills mines and newly-discovered Red Hill and Goldrush deposits. One of the world's most prolific gold belts, the Cortez Trend has generated more than 40M ounces of gold discovered and mined since 1991.
