Carolina GoldRediscovering the former Brewer Gold Mine in South Carolina
Pancontinental Resources Corporation (Pancon), in cooperation with Environmental Risk Transfer LLC (ERT), has the exclusive right to explore and potentially own the best gold target in the eastern USA: the former Brewer Gold Mine.
The Brewer Gold Project is located in the prolific and underexplored Carolina Slate Belt in Chesterfield County, South Carolina, USA.
Between 1987-1995, Brewer produced 178,000 ounces of oxide gold from open pits that extended to 50-meter depths, where copper and gold-rich sulfides were exposed but could not be processed by the oxide heap leach processing facility. Brewer hasn’t been explored since 1997, and most of the tools used previously to explore the property have since been updated with more advanced technologies. Brewer is a high sulphidation system driven by a sub-volcanic intrusive and possibly connected to a large copper-gold porphyry system at depth, as indicated by: widely known prospective geology, including diatreme breccias; associated high sulphidation alteration; gold and copper mineralization; and geophysics (Schmidt, R.G., 1978, The Potential for Porphyry Copper-Molybdenum Deposits in the Eastern United States, U.S. Geological Survey).
Pancon’s 100%-owned, 1,500-acre Jefferson Gold Project nearly completely surrounds the 1,000-acre former Brewer Gold Mine property, and both Jefferson and Brewer are located 12 kilometers northeast along trend from the producing Haile Gold Mine, which produced 146,100 ounces of gold in 2019.
