Wiita Mining and Exploration
is a family owned and operated mining company located in Blythe, Ca. specializing in gold and precious metals, although we
have been involved in numerous gem and mineral operations as well. We are happy to announce we are doing very well in
our (8) exploration trenches that we are working in our Middle Camp Mining District operation, and are planning
(8) new trenches in 2012. We have put this property under an official Notice of Exploration intent for 2012,
and should complete testing in early 2013. Our head ore is averaging $75.00 per yard from our current trench at the 24 foot
level, and with our machine being capable of 100 yards per hour 2012 is looking great. The Middle Camp Mining District
is known for it's nuggets, and this property has not been a let down. The exploration we did in in 2009 in this
district on our 40 acres below this 40 acres produced an 11 troy ounce nugget, and over 120 troy ounces of other nuggets.
Currently we have approx. 400,000 yards of classified head ore stockpiled.
Here's a little history on the La Paz & Middle Camp districts.
Americans discovered gold in the area in 1862, although mexican miners had been working this area for years before. Between
the years of 1862 and 1868 350,000 ounces were found in the La Paz district. The largest nugget said to be found in the district
was a 64 ouncer. Most of the gold is coarse, with many nuggets of an ounce or more. The average fineness is around 0.920,
with the main impurity being silver. Platinum-group metals, native silver, and native mercury have also been reported to occur
in the gravels.
