PROPOSED EXPLORATION

F3 Gold has two proposals to explore for gold in the Black Hills. The Forest Service has not completed tribal consultation on either of these projects.

Newark Exploratory Drill Program

The first and newer proposal is the Newark Exploratory Drill Program, just west of Custer. To our knowledge, no Exploration Notice of Intent has been filed yet with the South Dakota DENR.

Jenny Gulch Exploration Drilling Project

The second and older proposal is the Jenny Gulch Exploration Drilling Project, in the Rapid Creek watershed on Forest Service land near Silver City and Jenny Gulch (very close to Pactola). The Forest Service is requiring an Environmental Assessment for this project. F3 has also filed an Exploration Notice of Intent with the South Dakota DENR.
