Adams Mine/Duff Claims - Nevada
100% - Golden Phoenix owns a 100% interest in the Duff Claims located in Northern Nevada.
Golden Phoenix owns the Duff claims block comprised of 103 mineral claims located along the western flank of the Pine Forest Range, 20 miles south of Denio, Humboldt County, Nevada. The claims block, which was acquired in 2007, extends from Oakly Canyon south of the Ashdown Mine to the border of the Blue Lake Wilderness Study Area. Metals historically mined in the general region include gold, molybdenum copper, tungsten and antimony.
The major feature of the Duff claims is the Adams Mine, which at one time produced silica. However, there are historical reports that substantial gold was also extracted from the quartz rock. Gold has also been mined in the Vicksburg, Ashdown and Cherry Creek canyons to the north, and Leonard Canyon to the south of the Duff claims.
