Western Sierra Mining to Commence Phase I Development Program at Big Chief Mine

Western Sierra Mining will commence the first development phase at the Big Chief mine in central Arizona.

This Big Chief contains numerous unpatented claims located in the Hassayampa Mining region around 12 miles south of Prescott in Arizona. In late 1890s, Big Chief mine had the most historical production and then various periodic productions. Chiefly, the property is an underground gold deposit and has some exterior exposures along with little amounts of silver.

The company will start a geological estimation of the mine having a plan to extend the present claim block. The samples are taken from the present outcrops and trenches to verify the earlier exploration. Western has planned to open the current tunnels after claiming an exploration permit and analyze the shafts to additionally describe the current ore body.

Western has proposed a Plan of Operation during the exploration phase. This plan has to be filed with the U.S. Forestry Service for study and the program is extended to embrace the first pre-production target.
