Pumpkin Hollow consists of 10,680 acres of private land, located in a former-producing and prolifically-endowed copper district. Much of Pumpkin Hollow has seen little-to-no exploration activity. While advancing the underground mine and open pit developments remain our core focus, we have also commenced exploration in key areas of this remarkable property. Activities include:
- Forming a Geologic Advisory Council (GAC) that consists of experts with vast experience and knowledge of the region.
- Mapping, sampling and geophysics
- Drill testing key targets

Following investigation of surrounding land in April 2019, Nevada Copper expanded its land position by 32% with the staking of 5,700 acres of Federal Land to the northwest of its prior land position (shown below Figure 1), known as the Tedeboy Area. This area contains porphyry-style alteration and copper oxide mineralization at surface with multiple zones of copper mineralization sampled in outcrops and trenches.
