Great Western Mining

Permit Approval and Operational Update

RNS Number : 7948J
Great Western Mining Corp. plc
16 April 2020


("Great Western" or the "Company")

Permit Approval and Operational Update


Great Western Mining Corporation PLC (AIM - GWMO, Euronext Growth - 8GW) is pleased to announce that the U.S. federal Bureau of Land Management ("BLM") has now formally approved applications for surface disturbance works at the Mineral Jackpot ("MJ") and Rock House group ("RH Group") gold and silver prospects on the Company's acreage in Mineral County, Nevada, for an initial period of two years which may subsequently be extended in two-yearly increments.  Each permit will allow for five acres of disturbance and for subsequent exploration drilling.


The planned initial works include construction of thirteen trenches across the two project areas, seven of which will be at RH Group and six at Mineral Jackpot.


The seven trenches at RH Group will traverse both the Eastern Shear Zone and the Southern Alteration Zone prospects, located in the most desirable areas relative to the geochemical soil anomalies and previous geological mapping and sampling.  The surface trenches are designed to delineate areas of significant precious metal mineralisation which will be followed by a targeted drilling campaign.


The six trenches at Mineral Jackpot will be located across the largest two of the currently identified vein sets, recognised by previous geological mapping and highlighted during the soil sampling programme conducted at the end of 2019, results of which have already been reported to shareholders.  The trenching programme has been designed to verify the strike extents of the vein system at Mineral Jackpot and should provide valuable information on the vein widths and precious metal tenor. A successful programme will be followed by drilling on the best targets, along with further trenching across the remaining soil anomalies.


Executive Chairman Brian Hall commented: "Achieving these permits is an important step in our programme of exploiting gold and silver on our claims in Mineral County, Nevada.  Given the current COVID-19 situation, we are pleased that our application for these permits have been expedited in such a timely manner.  In common with enterprises around the world, Great Western is currently under lock-down and Company personnel are unable to travel. However, these permits will enable us to move rapidly as soon as circumstances permit."
