Big gold discovery in Idaho: Deflation is defined as a period in which prices decrease, when business activity slows and the economy is burdened by excessive debt, which has not been seen globally since the Great Depression of the 1930s (although a small degree of deflation occurred following the 2008 financial crisis in some parts of the world).. During the Depression, the relative purchasing power of gold soared while other prices dropped sharply. This is because people chose to hoard cash, and the safest place to hold cash was in gold and gold coin at the time.
Test mining will determine if the observed average bulk sample grades of 0.6 opt gold are consistent along the entire strike length of the Mary K Vein at surface. The potential quantity and grade is conceptual in nature, there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resources and it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource. A 500 lbsample from surface returned 0.79 ounce per ton.A 2 Kg sample from surface sent to theBureau Veritas laboratory in Richmond, B.C. returned 44.3 g/t with a combined gravity and flotation recovery of 96.3%.
The Mary K mine was first staked on Jan 11908 by Maxwell and Williams.They sunk two shafts and dug cuts along the vein for 3,000 feet.Richard Kleesattel, a mining engineer, picked the mine up in 1915 and began expanding the underground workings.Between 1929 and 1942 Mr. Kleesatteldeveloped at least 2,400 feet of underground workings.The longest is the #4 Level, or Main Access, which is over 2,000 ft long,1,100 ft of it were in high-grade gold mineralization.

The Elk City area sits in a metamorphic complex that is adjacent to the Idaho Batholith. Aplite dikes and other types of magmatic intrusive rocks thought to be emplaced at the time of the batholith are commonly associated with the gold bearing veins.The Elk City district trend is roughly 8 miles long and trends in a northwest-southeast direction. While the company believes the historical sampling data shown in the map is reliable, readers are cautioned that a qualified person has not completed sufficient work to be able to verify the historical information and therefore the information should not be relied upon.
The company plans to develop and test-mine the historical high-grade Mary K mine in Idaho. Bond Resources has signed an L.O.I with the owners of the mineral leases and 450 acre property. Conditions of the underground workings are currently unknown, but additional development and/or rehabilitation is considered straight forward. Elk City is located 33 miles ESE of Grangeville, Idaho. It is the closest town. Elk City is accessed by a well maintained two lane highway (Hwy 14), which follows the south fork of the Clearwater River.
