Comstock Mining Inc is a gold and silver mining company with contiguous property in the historic Comstock and Silver City mining districts. The Company's projects include The Lucerne Resource, The Dayton Resource and The Spring Valley exploration.

Comstock Mining Inc was incorporated in Florida in 1999 and reincorporated in Nevada in 2008. The Company is a gold and silver mining company with contiguous property in the historic Comstock and Silver City mining districts. Its projects include The Lucerne Resource, The Dayton Resource, The Spring Valley, and The Northern Extension. The Lucerne Resource area has been the focus of the Company's exploration and development efforts since 2007. It includes the previously mined Billie the Kid, Hartford and Lucerne mining claims, and extends east and northeasterly to the area of the historic Woodville bonanza, and north to the historic Justice and Keystone mines. The Dayton Resource area is southwest of Silver City in Lyon County, Nevada. It includes the Dayton, Kossuth and Alhambra claims, including the old Dayton Consolidated mine workings, south to where the Kossuth claim crosses State Route 341. The Spring Valley exploration target lies at the southern end of the Comstock District, where the mineralized structures lie mostly concealed beneath a veneer of sediment gravels. The area includes the Kossuth patented claim south of State Route 341, the Dondero patented property, the Daney patented claim, the New Daney lode mining claims, and the Company's placer mining claims in Spring Valley and Gold Canyon. The Northern Extension, Northern Targets and Occidental areas represent exploration target areas that contain many historic mining operations, including the Overman, Con Imperial, Caledonia, and Yellow Jacket mines.
