Gemini Lithium Project
Eureka owns a 50% participating interest in the Gemini lithium brine project ("Gemini"), located in the western Lida Valley, located in Esmeralda County in south central Nevada, approximately 40 kilometres (26 miles) from North America's only producing lithium mine at Silver Peak. Gemini currently consists of 247 placer claims totaling 4,940 acres (2,000 hectares). Gemini is located in a flat, desert basin hosting two interpreted sub-basins and with a similar geological setting to the Clayton Valley. Recent geophysical work at Gemini has outlined conductive zones interpreted as brine horizons, which the Company plans to test by drilling.
In August 2016, Nevada Sunrise Gold Corporation ("Nevada Sunrise") granted Advantage Lithium Corp. (TSXV: AAL, "Advantage") an option for Advantage to earn a 50% interest in Gemini as part of a transaction involving 5 lithium properties, including Gemini. Upon exercise of the option earn-in by Advantage, Nevada Sunrise would relinquish its 50% interest in Gemini, and retain a 2% gross overriding royalty in the Nevada Sunrise interest in the Project. On September 21, 2016 Eureka signed a 50-50 definitive joint venture agreement with Nevada Sunrise on Gemini.
Eureka has held the FG Property (formerly called Frasergold) since 1982. To date, over $15.0 million of exploratory work has been completed by the Company, ASARCO, AMOCO and Hawthorne Gold Corp. The historical exploration has established a Measured and Indicated (376,000 ounces) gold resource at an average grade of 0.776 g/t gold, using a cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t, and an Inferred gold resource (634,900 ounces) at an average grade of 0.718 g/t gold, using a cut-off grade of 0.5 g/t. Mineralization has been outlined over a strike length of 3 kilometres, and has the potential for additional mineralization that could extend along an interpreted strike length of over 10 kilometres. Details of the gold resource can be found in "NI 43-101 Technical Report, Frasergold Exploration Project, Cariboo Mining Division, dated July 27, 2015" available on SEDAR or at the Company's website. The Company recently granted an option to Canarc Resource Corp (TSX CCM). ("Canarc") which provides Canarc the ability to earn a 75% interest in the project.
