Tybo 2 is a Colluvium/Alluviul 20 acre placer claim located in Nye County Nevada just west of Warm Springs. the claim gets its colluvium layers of minerals from the drainages of the many Gold, Silver and Copper mines up the canyon that were worked as early as 1875 . Also mercury from cinnabar ores was mined up canyon for a period of time . The Colluvium because the top 2-5' is a secondary layer of mostly the sulfide ores. it is a newer sediment deposit overlaying the older ancient alluvial gravels . Mining articles state the early miners in Tybo in 1880 were unable to process the sulfide ores witch in turn with such a narrow canyon were just washed down to where they are today from all points of the canyon, including the processing areas at the mouth of the tybo canyon that are under claim by others . sampling showed small specs of amalgamated gold/mercury along with silver, copper bits and tons of Pyrite /Sulfides . this claim can be accessed easily by the dirt road cut through the upper portion of the claim with easy digging for classifying material down .the stream is most likely seasonal as there was no running water in early October . tybo is fairly remote with Rachel, Nevada and Tonopah, Nevada being its closest sources for food and gas. its a neat little claim with potential .

Tybo 2 A 20 acre Colluvial / Alluvial deposit located at the lower fan of Tybo canyon and mining district. Silver , Gold and copper were sampled in the sulfide rich layers of the colluvium deposit which is a secondary type deposit that was washed down over many years from the mines that are up the narrow canyon, starting around 1885 . history also indicated that the early miners were unable at the time to process all the sulfide ore which eventually was washed down the canyon and on to the benches below . these layers are up to 8' thick in the drainage . access to the claim is a good road and digging is easy . tybo creek is a dry creek that may only get water seasonally if at all in this current drought. classifying material and taking else were to process may be required without bringing water in . drywashing may work well once the ground drys up as well in spring . we did find some speck gold amalgamated with mercury and tons of sulfides (pyrites) this is the material that will be worked . this claim will get snow covered off and on throughout winter . contact me prior to any sampling for permission and directions $ 5000
