Work to date include the discovery of three base metal rich boulders along the shoreline of Wileys Lake. Two samples collected from Boulder 1 returned grades of 10.6% Zn, 1.84% Cu, 2.27% Pb, 26.4 g/t Ag and 9.90% Zn, 1.31% Cu, 2.50% Pb, and 19.2 g/t Ag. Boulder 2, discovered approx. 500 meters north of Boulder 1, returned grade of 13.5% Zn and 12.2 g/t Ag. Boulder 3, discovered approx. 500 meters north of Boulder 2, returned grades of 3.20% Pb, 1.16% Zn, and 9.1 g/t Ag. The angularity of the boulders suggests that they are locally derived.
A recent airborne survey assessment report discloses that, based on the total magnetic data, there is a significant geological contact that runs NE-SW through the project area. The electromagnetic data highlights one priority target of interest, although other weaker targets of interest exist. The airborne geophysical survey was conducted by SkyTEM Canada Inc of Ayr, Ontario and reviewed by RDF Consulting Ltd. of Paradise, NewFoundland. The survey consisted of 140 line kilometers of magnetometer and electromagnetic data collection on 100 meter spaced flight lines flown at an azimuth of 150 degrees.
