Comstock Mining Launches Geophysical Surveys of the Southern Comstock District, Dayton Resource Area and Spring Valley Exploration Targets
Virginia City, NV (September 22, 2020) Comstock Mining Inc. (the “Company”) (NYSE American: LODE) announced today that Geotech Ltd. (“Geotech”) of Aurora, Canada, began conducting the previously announced airborne geophysical surveys last weekend, including the Dayton resource area, adjacent to Silver City, NV and the contiguous Spring Valley exploration targets all the way to Hwy 50.
Geotech launched its proprietary Versatile Time-Domain Electromagnetic (“VTEM”) geophysical system on Saturday, September 19, 2020, once visibility improved as smoke from the California fires cleared, and plans to complete the survey, by the end of September. The Company expects preliminary scans becoming available by mid-October, and extensive three-dimensional interpreted results later in the fourth quarter.
The results will greatly increase the Company’s understanding of the Dayton resource area and Spring Valley resource expansion potential, along with the Company’s other exploration targets in Lyon County.
Mr. Corrado De Gasperis, Executive Chairman and CEO stated, “Geotech’s proprietary surveys will provide invaluable data, to both corroborate and expand our knowledge of the potential mineralization, in the safest, least disruptive manner, and at depths not previously explored, enabling us to, among other things, refine and finalize a most effective and efficient exploration and development drill program.”
