About Great Western Mining Corporation PLC

The Great Western Mining Corporation PLC has a large tract of acreage in Mineral County, Nevada. The area consists of rugged, mountainous terrain, which means that large parts of it remain under-explored. Mineral potential is hosted by the regional Walker Lane Structural Belt, the largest structural and metallogenic belt in Nevada, yet one of the least explored in recent times, with gold, silver, and copper currently produced in Mineral County. Great Western has seven distinct concession areas which offer the potential for exploiting short-term gold and silver deposits and long-term, world-class copper deposits.

Six of the Company’s properties are in the west of Mineral County and are 100% owned and operated. The Company has an option to acquire a seventh property, the Olympic Gold Project, in the east of the county. Great Western’s small exploration team is supported by locally based consultants and contractors.

The state of Nevada is generally considered to be one of the world’s most mining-friendly jurisdictions. While tightly regulated and environmentally conscious, Nevada welcomes the mining industry. Great Western takes care to ensure that its claims are maintained in good standing and all regulations observed.

There are numerous gold and silver prospects on the Company’s acreage, including extensive historic mine workings which offer the opportunity for secondary recovery.

Furthermore, through extensive drilling over a five-year period, GWM has established a Mineral Resource on its first target area known as M2, of 4.3 million tonnes 0.45% copper, for 19,000 tonnes of contained copper metal. This resource has been independently reported by JORC guidelines.
