Gold Star #1-5
This is a group of 5 Arizona lode mining claims, over 100 acres of mineral rights
- No interest payment plan with 20% down and monthly payments.
- BLM maintenance fee paid separate, currently $165.00 a year for each claim.
Almost all mineralization occurs along the northern edge of the mountain range, though not everywhere associated with older plutonic rocks. In the Webb Mountain area quartz-tourmaline alteration and quartz-chrysocolla-cuprite veins in small faults suggest remobilization and alteration of previously strata-bound volcanogenic sulfide deposits by younger hydrothermal circulation. The mineral deposits have undergone metamorphism.
Gold Star claims are directly East of the Idazona Mines. It adjoins past producers on the same trend. Tested well for placer gold, has cu-au vein systems poorly exposed. The large wash and feeder gulches we tested for placer gold tested well.
At the Idazona Mines chrysocolla, with minor gold, silver and lead occur within quartz-carbonate veins in dark green diorite. The veins strike between N15°W and N30°W and dip steeply (75°-85°) to the southwest. The veins are quite abundant, usually between 2 and 30 cm thick and are commonly composed almost completely of grey to yellow carbonate. The carbonate is resistant and forms small ridges in the diorite.
Their west-northwest strike suggests that the quartz-carbonate veins may have filled Tertiary faults or fractures, though it is possible they may be related to the older west-northwest foliation. Metaorphism and deformation and are probably Proterozoic.
