- The future isn't outcroppingExploring Nevada Under Cover
Nevada Exploration is exploring for large new Carlin-type gold deposits in Nevada’s underexplored covered valley basins by incorporating the latest in under-cover exploration technology.
Nevada is the world’s number one gold producer by area, has produced +225 Moz, and is home to some of world’s largest gold mines. More than half of Nevada’s bedrock is covered beneath its valley basins, and these covered areas have seen limited exploration to date because conventional exploration methods are challenged in covered terranes. Opening up Nevada’s covered basins for exploration offers the potential to discover the second half of Nevada’s prolific gold endowment.
Just like when the petroleum industry had to transition from onshore to offshore exploration, the future of gold exploration is in opening up covered search spaces. To unlock the potential to discover large Carlin-type gold deposits in Nevada’s highly prospective covered basins, Nevada Exploration is an early leader in incorporating new technology to systematically identify and advance new exploration projects in covered terranes.
