About Comstock Metals Ltd.
The QV Property lies within an area of 494 claims covering 10,374 hectares (25,634 acres) within the prolific White Gold District in the Yukon Territory about 70 kilometres south of Dawson City that were optioned from Shawn Ryan, a Yukon-based prospector responsible for the discovery of two of the prominent gold discoveries in the White Gold district: Kinross Gold's 1.5 million ounce Golden Saddle deposit and Kaminak Gold's Coffee projects. The Company has completed soil-sampling programs and a program of mechanical trenching on the QV property with encouraging results.
The Company has also earned a 60% interest in the Corona Property in Mexico and can earn an additional 15% interest from Golden Goliath Resources (GNG) to hold a 75% interest by completing a positive bankable feasibility study by December 31, 2017. Comstock's Corona Gold-Silver project is located in the prolific Sierra Madre Occidentale in Chihuahua, Mexico. The Company completed a drill program in the spring of 2012. The drill program discovered two new zones of gold and silver mineralization. Please refer to the website at http://www.comstock-metals.com/projects/corona_gold_silver/ for details. Previous reverse circulation drilling identified both bulk tonnage and high-grade vein type gold/silver targets, some of which the Company plans to diamond-drill.
