Renaissance selling antimony prospect in Pershing County
Renaissance Gold Inc. of Reno said last week it’s selling a prospect near Lovelock to a Las Vegas company that wants to fast-track development of an antimony, lead and silver mine.
The 742-acre property known as the Arabia project is in a district where the first commercial-sized lead smelter in the United States came into operation in the mid-1860s.
First Liberty Power Corp. of Las Vegas will pay Renaissance Gold $100,000 a year and provide a 10 percent net royalty interest to the Reno company. Renaissance Gold is committed to spend $50,000 a year in exploration on the property.
The Las Vegas company is planning a mill four miles to the east to process antimony ores from its own Fencemaker project that’s now under development nearby.

Nationwide, nurses and providers are being forced into these situations where they have to choose if they’re going to take care of this patient or if they’re going to walk away.”
