MARCO GOLD PROJECT

In early 2004 Pershing Resources acquired the rights to 44 mining claims located in Nevada. The company and the previous owners have done extensive work on the project identifying targets and preparing for potential production. The proximity of this project to historical precious metals production is consistent with the companies stated objective found in our mission statement.

LOCATION AND ACCESS
The property (Marco’es Gold Project) is located in the Trinity Mining District of Pershing County, Nevada, approximately 110 miles north by northeast of Reno. The closest active town is Lovelock, Nevada, a small rural ranching community located 97 miles east of Reno on Interstate 80.  The Marco’es Gold Project is located approximately 14 road miles from this community, 10 of which are improved bitumen roads, with the last four being typical dirt-dust desert roads.
