RENO, Nev., Jan. 21, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Coyote Resources Inc. (OTCBB:COYR) is pleased to announce that it has commenced trading on the OTC Bulletin Board with the symbol COYR. The corporate website was launched at . Coyote Resources is an exploration company with its initial focus on precious metal deposits in Nevada.
Coyote Resources has acquired rights to two precious metals properties in Nevada, U.S.A., the Tonopah Extension Mine and the Golden Trend property.
Tonopah Extension Mine
The Tonopah Extension Mine is an exploration property located in south-central Nevada, midway between Reno and Las Vegas. The Tonopah mining district is centered on the town of Tonopah in Nye and Esmeralda Counties. Coyote Resources owns 958 acres of patented mineral rights and 368 acres of patented surface rights in addition to surface rights on another 487 acres to be used for mining purposes.
We also own the original underground maps and cross-sections registered to the mine survey that is tied to the still-existing Victor Shaft steel head frame. Based on the previous report conducted by the United States Geological Survey geologist, Tom Nolan, we believe there are substantial amounts of silver and gold in one part of the mine. The Mine survey states that the location is at a depth of 1,500 to 2,000 feet.
Coyote Resources intends to drill into that portion of the mine in the spring of 2011. This undeveloped portion is the focus of the company's exploration of the property.
Golden Trend is comprised of 111 claims located on the southwestern flank of the Cortez Mountains, approximately 70 miles southwest of Elko, Nevada in the Buckhorn mining district. It is located about 6 miles south of and we believe on trend with the currently producing 10 million ounce Cortez Hills deposit being mined by Barrick Gold and about 5 miles south of the 3 million ounce Pediment deposit under development by Barrick. It is also about 10 miles southeast of the 23 million ounce Pipeline gold deposit currently being produced by Barrick. Other mines and discoveries in the nearby area include the Horse Canyon Mine, currently inactive but under active exploration by Barrick, the ET Blue deposit, recently discovered by Placer Dome and being explored by Barrick, and the Buckhorn Mine, a former producer. Coyote Resources is actively exploring Golden Trend with the expectation of discovering additional resources in that area.
Coyote Resources is very excited about the potential of our two projects, and continues to search for high quality gold or silver prospects that have both a known precious metal resource and an excellent potential for discovery of a world class, economic precious metal deposit in Nevada and world-wide.
