Abstract

This tour of the Pinson mines presents an overview of the main gold-producing zones mined by the Pinson Mining Company. Currently, the mine is in closure and reclamation is well advanced. As a result, access to the pits is limited. The agenda for this tour includes an overview of the CX pit, as well as a traverse along the south CX pit ramp from the hanging wall to the footwall of the CX zone (Fig. 1). The Pinson site tour concludes with a review of core that is representative of mineralization intersected in the deeper parts of the main mineralized zones.

Mine Stop 1: Check in at the Pinson mine gate.

Mine Stop 2: View southwest along the CX zone to the A zone from overlook at the north end of the CX pit.

Mine Stop 3: Traverse of CX pit south ramp.

Mine Stop 4: Core review at the Pinson exploration core shacks.

After touring Pinson mine, we will head for Iron Point. Return to Golconda and get on Interstate 80 eastbound.
