Hycroft Mine Exploration

Allied Nevada commenced systematic exploration and resource development drilling starting in 2006.  Drilling has been focused on oxide reserve delineation, sulfide resource definition, sulfide exploration, condemnation drilling for facilities, silver data and both geotechnical and metallurgical core samples. Between late-2006 and July 29, 2013, we have completed 1,684 exploration holes, totaling approximately 1.34 million feet. The exploration drill program continues at Hycroft with the objective of expanding the mineral reserve and resource base.
