The DeLamar project is located in southwestern Idaho approximately 100 miles (160 km) from Boise. The project includes the historic Kinross’ DeLamar Mine that closed in 1998 due to low precious metal prices. The historic DeLamar Mine produced 1.6 million ounces of gold and 100 million ounces of silver1.
The DeLamar Project constitutes roughly 5,300 acres of patented and unpatented claims, and a further 4,100 acres of leased lands with approximately 1,575 historic drill holes and 145,940 meters of drilling outlined in historic databases. The DeLamar site includes all necessary infrastructure and existing on-site facilities, including all-season road access, grid power, a lined water treatment pond, workshop, and an office building.
In 2018, Integra drilled 23,400 m in 80 drill holes, identifying a new zone of mineralization not mined or fully explored by previous operators. This new zone, Sullivan Gulch, in addition to successful drilling below and around the existing resource, has proven the Company’s theory that the DeLamar Deposit has the potential for significant resource growth.

In 2019, the Company released an updated Resource Estimate and a robust Preliminary Economic Assessment. The Company also drilled more than 22,000 m at DeLamar, Florida Mountain, and other regional targets. In late 2019, the Company intersected the highest grades to date at War Eagle Mountain and Florida Mountain.
