Gold Bull owns 100% of the Big Balds Project, a gold exploration target located approximately 120km south of Elko, Nevada. The project is comprised of 210 lode mining claims located on BLM tenure.
Located on the prolific Carlin and Bida gold trends
Project is drill ready
with targets based on compelling 3D inversion geophysical anomalies (gravity and magnetics) combined with highly anomalous arsenic at surface
Big Balds consists of three priority targets
(Bald Eagle, Bald Badger & Bald Cougar)
Targets are under cover and have never been previously drilled
Less than 10km west of Kinross’s Bald Mountain Operating Mine
(300mt @ 0.6 g/t for 5.5. M Oz Au – as per Kinross Annual Report 2019)
Targets have been generated by geophysics
Big Balds Priority Targets
Strong magnetic anomaly, with source geometry influenced by the regional structural trend that also controls intrusions and mineralization at Bald Mountain
Skarn type geophysical response with elevated base and precious metals at surface in soil samples
Structural target with outcropping sinter
(elevated mercury and arsenic in soil samples)
Geophysics paves the way forward
Nevada is one of the most prolific gold provinces on the planet, having produced over 225 million ounces of gold to date. Most of Nevada is under cover; however, the majority of the drilling that has been conducted is where there is outcrop (no sand cover). This represents a large opportunity to explore for world class deposits under cover in a gold rich geological terrain that is also a mining friendly jurisdiction.
Located on the prolific Carlin Trend

Detailed geophysical data supports a northwest trending structural corridor “Bida Trend”, that controls intrusions and gold mineralization at Bald Mountain gold mine. Geophysics data allow for interpretation of what may lie under the pediment. High priority fault zones and interpreted intrusions have been identified and secured. Significant magnetic features within the proven Bida Trend sit under pediment cover, at the intersection between Bida Trend and faults which represent near term drill targets, including NW faults that based on geophysical interpretation, appear to extend from Bald Mountain. These geophysical targets have received no attention due to cover yet there is strong potential for continuation of the Bald Mountain plumbing system.
Detailed Gravity data can be used to predict depth of cover in Nevadan ‘basin/range’ country. Distinct N-S and NW-SE edges have been interpreted as prospective extensional fault zones. This is important because fault zones cutting Carlin host geology can be conduits for precious and base metal mineralization. The acquired Geophysics data has defined features warranting geochemical drilling. Several gravity highs located in areas of pediment cover possibly correspond to granitoids. These are of interest because the Bald Mountain gold mineralization is recognized as being intrusive associated. The systems are usually zones, with gold mineralization occurring proximal and base metal distal to the intrusion, which also aligns with the elevated base metal that is observed in soil samples proximal.
