LAS VEGAS, Oct. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Bonanza Goldfields Corp. (OTC PINK: BONZ) has signed an agreement to acquire a Mill Site for its Golden Gem Project. The Golden Gem Mine is located 10 miles north of Kingman, Arizona. The 26.84-acre Golden Gem Mill Site is adjacent to the BONZ Broken Hills patented mining claim and is immediately north of BONZ' O'Brien Mine group of mining claims.
The Golden Gem Mill formerly processed ore from BONZ' Golden Gem and Summit Mines, as well as other mines in the vicinity. Water supply for milling was obtained from a mine shaft on the Golden Gem claim. Water for the Golden Gem assay office and change room was produced by a domestic well located on the mill site. Hondo Minerals removed the historic mill equipment and building but did not replace it. The Golden Gem assay office and change room was not removed, but will need repairs. If it is decided to process mineralized material from the Golden Gem Project locally, a new mill would need to be designed and built at the Golden Gem Mill Site.
Hondo Minerals will receive 4,500 shares of BONZ Series B Preferred Stock as the purchase price for the Mill Site.
