TORONTO, June 8 /CNW/ -- Uranium Hunter Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board:
URHN) is pleased to provide further details on the Eagle Nest Mining Property.
The Company recently entered into a Joint Venture Agreement to acquire a 49%
interest in the Eagle Nest Mining Property Claims ("Eagle Nest") located in La
Paz County, Arizona.
Mr. Reno Calabrigo, President stated "The Company is excited about this
venture into the Bouse Mining District, which has a long established history
of producing profitable gold mining operations. We are in the process of
evaluating the recent available data on the Eagle Nest Mining Property and
will release this information shortly in conjunction with an announcement for
an upcoming work program. Mr. Calabrigo further stated "During the 1980's,
Cyprus Gold profitably mined the 500,000 oz Copperstone open pit resource,
located approximately 20 miles from Bouse, which based on today's gold prices
is valued at over $470,000,000."
History of the Bouse Mining District
The Bouse Mining District, where Eagle Nest is located, is a mid-tertiary
system of epithermal mineralization, which was introduced into a stacked
sequence of lithotectonic units that are located on the northern side of the
Plomosa Detachment Fault. Complex epithermal gold, barite and fluorite
mineralization is superimposed on earlier copper-specularite mineralization.
Gold occurs in laterally extensive breccias and in steeply dipping
amethystine-quartz veins. These deposits are similar to the proven and mined
Copperstone and Mesquite deposits.
This District involves an important type of Arizona gold deposit, called
a "detachment fault" deposit. Detachment fault deposits were first recognized
as a separate form of gold deposit in the 1980's. The best example of an
Arizona detachment gold deposit is Copperstone, which is about 20 miles from
Bouse. It was the biggest gold discovery in Arizona in at least 50 years.
Cyprus Gold profitably mined the 500,000 oz open pit resource during the
1980's. The Bouse Mining District is an historic gold producer.
