ORO CRUZ & AMERICAN GIRL, CARGO MUCHACHO MOUNTAINS, CALIFORNIA
In the Cargo Muchacho mountains of Imperial County, southeast California, Southern Empire owns the American Girl Mine Property and holds options to acquire a 100% interest in the 2,160 hectares (5,338 acre) Oro Cruz Property located approximately 22.5 kilometres (km; 14 miles) southeast of the operating Mesquite gold mine of Equinox Gold Corp.
With a history that includes extensive drilling and large-scale open pit and underground mining by the American Girl Mining Joint Venture (53 per cent owned by MK Gold Co., a subsidiary of Morrison Knudsen Corporation, and 47 per cent owned by Hecla Mining Company), which was suspended during the gold market downturn in 1996, the Oro Cruz Gold Project hosts many exploration targets in addition to a high-grade oxide gold zone that, based on the historical mine operation records, is amenable to conventional heap leach extractive methods.
EQUITY INTEREST IN BULLFROG GOLD CORP.
Southern Empire also holds a significant equity interest in Bullfrog Gold Corp., a US based gold exploration company with a commanding land package in the Bullfrog Mine area from which Barrick Gold Corp. produced more than 2 million ounces during the 1990’s.
