Comstock Mining Inc. is a Nevada-based, gold and silver mining company with extensive, contiguous property in the Comstock District and is a leader in sustainable, responsible mining and is currently developing and commercializing environment-enhancing, precious-metal-based technologies, products, and processes for precious metal recovery. Comstock Mining has an unprecedented level of quality and commitment to our communities, environment, historic preservation, investors, industry and our team.
Comstock is headquartered in Virginia City, Nevada, home of the historic, world-class Comstock Lode, north-east of Carson City, and south-west of Reno. We continuously strive to to demonstrate a level of quality and commitment to our investors, communities, environment, historic preservation, industry and our team. We strive to reduce or eliminate life diminishing activities in an effort that benefits all our stakeholders.
Through our consolidation efforts, going back to 2003, we now own or control approximately 9,358 acres of mining claims and parcels in the broader Comstock District and surrounding area. The acreage includes approximately 2,396 acres of patented claims and surface parcels (private lands) and approximately 6,962 acres of unpatented mining claims (public lands), which the Bureau of Land Management (“BLM”) administers.
Because of the Comstock District’s historical significance, the geology is well known and has been extensively studied by the Company, our advisors and many independent researchers. The volume of geologic data is immense, particularly in the Lucerne and Dayton resource areas. We have amassed a large library of historic data and detailed surface mapping of Comstock District properties and continue to obtain historic information from private and public sources. We have expanded our understanding of the geology through vigorous surface mapping and drill hole logging. We integrate this data with information obtained from our recent mining operations, to target geological prospective exploration areas and plan exploratory drilling programs, including expanded surface and underground drilling.
From socially conscious leading-edge technologies to restoring and preserving our incredible historic community and treasures – the team is proud to be Comstock Miners!
