Bull Run Project (Oregon, USA)

The Bull Run Project is located in Baker County, eastern Oregon, USA, approximately 5 miles south of the town of Unity and has been intermittently mined for vein gold since around 1929. The company has an option over the 11 lode mining claims held by Young and Mount View Farms. Additionally, the company has a 100% interest in an additional 79 lode mining   surrounding the Young and Mt View Farms claims in the option area.

The Project hosts gold and base metal mineralisation in northeast trending en-echelon veins, stockwork-type vein filling and disseminations between major veins within older equigranular biotite-quartz diorite and later felsic porphyritic intrusions. Low-grade mineralisation is also observed within the serpentinite.

Historical work programs initially had drilling targeting high grade vein hosted mineralisation and later looking at larger bulk tonnage options. BSX completed soil geochemistry sampling over the claims with identified two gold in soil trends:

  • North trend to approximately parallel to serpentinite – Bull Run granodiorite contact and the dominant dyke strike through the Bull Run Project area
  • Northeast to north-northeast trend parallel to the dominant vein set within the Bull Run granodiorite, highlighting in particular the Whited, Payton and Sunrise veins.
