Project Background 

The Spring Valley Exploration Project is located in Pershing County 20 miles northeast of Lovelock, Nevada. The Spring Valley Mining District has been producing minerals since 1868 through placer mining and dredging. Modern exploration began in 1996 and Solidus Resources acquired the Project in 2015. Since then, Solidus has gone through multiple drilling programs and a 43-101 in support of permitting an open pit Mine. Sunstone has supported these drilling programs and the 43-101 as well as managing baseline studies; we are currently working towards a Mine Plan of Operations submittal. 

Major Projects 

Baseline Reports 

Sunstone operated under a $1.7 million-dollar AFE to contract and submit baseline reports for the Project. We managed hydrological, biological, and cultural baseline studies from 2019-2021. We worked directly with consultants to schedule and conduct the surveys and provided guidance and technical expertise during the report drafting.  

Mine Permitting 

Sunstone is currently operating under a $3.7 million-dollar AFE to complete permitting for the Mine. This permitting includes management of multiple permit applications including a Water Pollution Control Permit and Plan of Operations/Reclamation Plan as well as NEPA. We maintain a weekly coordination call with the BLM to keep all parties informed on the current status of the project.
