COMSTOCK CELEBRATES OUR FIRST POUR

Happy Halloween everyone, which on the Comstock is also Nevada Day, commemorating the State of Nevada’s admission into the Union on October 31st, 1864.  Mining on Comstock played a central role in Nevada’s early development, and we are pleased to continue that tradition of innovation and economic development.  It seems fitting, that on this day, we share with you photos and video of Comstock Mining Inc’s First Pour.

The Comstock experienced three very special days in late October when our team hosted over 400 visitors to help us celebrate September’s FIRST POUR. Guests first arrived in Virginia City at the Comstock Gold Mill to register, take a photograph with the Doré bar, tour the two-stamp historic mill and ride the fastest stagecoach in the west before boarding buses for a tour of the Lucerne Mine and the process area in American Flat. Following the guided tour, guests entered a large festival tent raised on the grounds of the Cabin in the Sky for some presentations and refreshments.

Presentations included our latest version of the Company overview and a dramatic video (set to music) of the actual first pour. Each day focused upon one or two specific stakeholder bases (Thursday hosted our regulators, suppliers and contractors; Friday hosted our shareholders and certain media; and Saturday hosted Comstock residents and the broader community at large), and each day was well attended. Friday’s festivities featured the additional excitement of a blast in the Justice claim of the Lucerne Mine that was visible to all.  

The following pictures were taken during the event. Please also play the video that is linked below, recording for posterity the actual first pour from September 29th of this year.

With the successful completion and celebration of the first pours, mining has responsibly returned to one of the largest and most historic mining district in the world.  This historic achievement comes from the extraordinary effort of our entire Nevada team and represents the start of revenue generation for our company.

Best Regards from The Comstock,
