Athena is focused on the exploration and development of precious metals in the Western United States.
Athena’s flagship project is an advanced-stage gold exploration project Excelsior Springs being acquired from Nubian Resources located in Esmeralda County, Nevada.
From the mid 1980s through 2011, a number of exploration companies conducted drilling programs, primarily that began to define the near-surface Buster Mine gold zone at Excelsior Springs. Gold mineralization at the Property occurs within an east-west trending zone that is 200-400m wide and at least 3km long.
Athena also has 36 unpatented claims totaling over 720 acres located in the Historic Calico Mining District in San Bernardino County, California. Athena’s unpatented claims are located adjacent to the historic silver deposits known as Langtry and Pan American Silver’s Waterloo. Athena also owns more than 800 acres of investment property in San Bernardino County, California and has an option to acquire a 1% royalty on the Langtry Silver Deposit.
