Molybdenum has become very important as demand for moly is tied to demand for steel used in the petroleum industry (e.g. drill pipe, pipeline construction), which will benefit from accelerated petroleum exploration and development in an era of high oil prices.
The molybdenum assets held by American Molygold Corp and disposed of by your Company; are as follows:
1. American Molygold. The American Molygold property is in the Cherry Mining District in Yavapai County, Arizona approximately 10 miles from Jerome. This 1,900 acre property includes the two major historic gold producing mines in the district, Monarch and Logan, as well as a probable resource of 150,000 tons and an inferred resource of 5,000,000 tons, based on work by the prior owner, Alanco. It is a preCambrian deposit in a Bradshaw Granite intrusion into Yavapai Schist, located along the Verde Fault. There is a large, partially stripped gold- bearing zone of alteration with veinlets of copper and molybdenum mineralization that has been interpreted as being the outer layer or shell of porphyry copper / moly mineralization on the eastern portion of the claims. The vein systems may warrant underground development and there is potential for an open pit low gold content target with associated moly and base metals production. 2. Rochester Molygold. The Rochester Molygold property is in the Rabbit Mining District in Madison County, Montana, approximately 30 miles from Butte and comprises approximately 2,250 acres. The project includes a majority of the former FMC Gold project, which reported an 850,000 ounce gold resource. It also includes the former US Steel moly project. This is also a preCambrian deposit with the gold found in well defined veins that strike north or northeast and dip steeply west, usually associated with granite dikes. Additionally, there are placer gold workings along Rochester Creek, and a possible method of mining would use water from dewatering the underground workings for placer mining downstream. The moly is found in a preCambrian quartz monzonite stock , which is altered to a greisens-like vuggy aggregate of muscovite, quartz, and clots and disseminated grains of pyrite and molybdenite, as well as quartz veins containing same.
