Walker River Resources Corp is a junior mining firm focused on precious metals projects, primarily ones located in the United States. Walker River Resources, aka Walker, was incorporated in December 2010 according to the British Columbia Business Corporations Act.
The company is publicly listed on the premier TSX Venture Exchange, where its common shares are traded under the stock quote WRR. The Vancouver-headquartered miner is engaged in the discovery, acquisition and evaluation of mineral properties, particularly with gold mineralization.
The company is also involved in the further exploration and development of the acquired projects. Walker holds a 100 per cent ownership stake in the Lapon Project situated in the 100-kilometer-long corridor, namely, the Walker Lane Shear Zone, in Reno, Nevada.
The project is contiguous to the past-producing gold (Au), silver (Ag) and copper (Cu) deposits, including the Comstock Lode Mine, Esmeralda/ Aurora Deposit and Anaconda Copper Mine. The Lapon Project comprises 147 mineral claims spread over a land package of about 2,940 acres. These mineral claims are divided into three primary groups:
• Pike Peak Claims
• Lapon Canyon or Rose Claims
• Range Front Rattlesnake Claims
The Project dates back to 1914 when it started as a small-scale mining operation. With time, it expanded to underground mining, a ball mill and milling facilities.
The company further possesses a 100 per cent stake in the Garfield Flats Project situated approximately 18 miles southeast of Hawthorne, Nevada. This project also lies on the Walker Lane corridor along US Highway 95.
The Garfield Flats Property consists of 156 unpatented mineral claims encompassing a total land area of 3,120 acres. The project includes various historical small-scale gold and copper deposits, mineralized and altered zones which were identified from prior geological research and mapping work.
The project is contiguous to Pamlico Property (operator: New Range Gold Corp) and historical projects, including Camp Douglas, Mabel, Evening Star, Bodie, etc. It enjoys infrastructural benefits from the nearby mining-friendly Mineral County. The Nevada-focused gold exploration company is working on exploration and drilling programs to discover, evaluate and exploit new prospective targets to increase the mineral resource potential for the development and advancement of its projects.
