Viscount Mining Corp, micro cap public company, is a project generator and an exploration company with a portfolio of silver and gold properties in the Western United States, including Silver Cliff in Colorado and Cherry Creek in Nevada.
The Silver Cliff property lies within the historic Hardscrabble Silver District in the Wet Mountain Valley, Custer County, south-central Colorado. It is located 44 miles WSW of Pueblo, Colorado, and has year-around access by paved road. The property consists of 900 hectares where high grade silver, gold and base metal production came from numerous mines during the period 1878 to the early 1900’s. The property underwent substantial exploration in the 1967 to 1984 period and again in the late 1980s. The property encompasses a portion of a large caldera and highly altered sequence of Tertiary rhyolitic flows and fragmental units which host deposits with both precious and base metals. This has been demonstrated in the mineralization historically extracted from the numerous underground and surface mining operations. Drilling in the 1980s by Tenneco resulted in a feasibility study on which basis it was planned to bring the property to production. The plan was abandoned following take over by another company.
The Cherry Creek property is in an area commonly known as the Cherry Creek Mining District, located approximately 53 miles north of the town of Ely, in White Pine County, Nevada. The property consists of 276 unpatented and 17 patented claims as well as mill rights, with its more than 2,434 hectares encompassing in excess of 20 historic mines.
