The Ranger-Page Project (the “Project”) (formerly known as the Government Gulch Project) is a brownfields exploration opportunity located in the Silver Valley, northern Idaho. On February 10, 2021, the Company entered into an option agreement with Blackhawk Exploration L.L.C. (“Blackhawk”) to acquire a 100% interest in the Ranger-Page Project in the Silver Valley, Coeur d’Alene Mining District, Idaho, USA. On July 20, 2021, the Company entered into a definitive agreement for an option to acquire up to 100% of the Ranger-Page Project in the Silver Valley, Idaho, USA.
Despite the Project being located between two prolific past producing mining properties, the Project was unavailable for exploration and development over the past 80 years due to claim boundary issues between Bunker Hill Mining (the Bunker Hill Mine) and ASARCO (the Page Mine), as well as the subsequent transfer of the property to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) and the closure of the area for mining in the late 1970’s.
The claim package within the Ranger-Page Project is located on patented claims, which means that no federal permitting is required. The Project is located 1 km from nearby mining-friendly town of Smelterville, Idaho. The Project is located in Shoshone County, which has a population of approximately 13,000.
