Comment deadline on Cutty Sark Lode Gold Silver Exploration Project

November 2, 2023 @ 11:30 pm - 11:59 pm

Cutty Sark Lode Gold Silver Exploration Project would be on a claim about .68 miles north of Mystic SD, in the Castle Creek drainage.   This project is about a half mile west of the intersection of  Castle Creek and Rapid Creek about a mile & a third north west of the Canyon City Research Natural Area  – it is in section 33 (see map above). It  is probably  within a two thirds of a mile of Rapid  Creek and within a half mile of Castle Creek.

Project will collect surface samples with hand tools. It will eventually involve going into an old shaft and drilling for ore with a pneumatic shipping hammer, with air compressor on surface run by gasoline. All overburden/waste material will be left underground in previous workings. Ore brought to surface will be taken off site for crushing/sluicing – no waste dumps necessary at this  time. Water will not be continuously removed from any water body, nor will waste water be continuously generated.

It will involve using a closed road. There will be a base camp on Forest land to the north and travel between camp and site, will be with an ATV.
