All serious gold investors know the Carlin Trend of Nevada is one of the most prolific gold producing regions of the world. Is it possible that there is an undiscovered district, not just a deposit, within that region that was missed by the majors? Jon Awde, CEO of Gold Standard Ventures, discusses how spectacular drill results have guided Gold Standard Ventures to focus on creating the southernmost mining district of the Carlin Trend—the Railroad/Pinion District. At more than 40 square miles, the district is large enough to potentially sustain a mid-sized producer. In this interview with The Gold Report, Awde describes the unique challenges of proving up a series of deposits that are in the shadow of the majors and for the first time all combined under one company in a single mining district.
