SSX - STEER COMPLEX
The SSX-Steer Complex is comprised of the SSX and Steer mines, connected by a drift that was completed in 2005. The connection between the two mines enables drill platforms to explore the corridor. The two mines also share infrastructure.
Mining started at the SSX mine in 1997; in the last few years it has become the main gold producer at Jerritt Canyon.
The SSX deposit occurs between 450 to 1000 feet below the surface. The westward extension of the South Boundary Dike and the Mahala resource to the east represent exploration opportunities at the SSX mine.
Gold mineralization in the Steer portion of the SSX-Steer Complex has been identified. High-grade mineralization in the eastern portion of the Steer area is associated with the Husky fault.
