High Grade Silver and Gold in Nevada

Awakening the Queen of the Silver Camps

Blackrock’s flagship Tonopah West project consolidates the western half of the famed Tonopah Silver District within the Walker Lane trend of Nevada.  Known as the Queen of the Silver Camps, the Tonopah Silver District produced over 174 million ounces of silver and 1.8 million ounces of gold from approximately 7.5 million tonnes of high-grade silver-gold making it one of the most significant silver-gold districts in North America.  With 30,000m of exploration drilling completed in 2020, and a 40,000m core drilling program underway, Blackrock aims to deliver a maiden resource estimate by the end of 2021 as the first group to target the historic workings on the property since production shut down nearly 100 years ago.

Jurisdiction
According to the Fraser Institute, in 2020 Nevada ranked as the top mining jurisdiction in the world based on investment attractiveness.
Silver Primary
According to the Silver Institute, only 29% of all silver produced comes from primary silver mines. The Tonopah silver district historically produced at a 100 to 1 silver/gold ratio, making Tonopah a silver primary precious metals district.
Bonanza Grades
Historic production in the Tonopah silver district averaged at 1,384 g/t silver and 16 g/t gold establishing it as one of the highest grade silver districts in the world. In early drilling (drillhole TW0-007) encountered 1.5m metres grading 2,029 g/t silver and 26 g/t gold highlighting the bonanza potential that remains.
