    • Soil sampling indicating a volcanogenic massive sulphide target that extends up to 6 kilometers.
    • 10 Diamond drill holes intersected VMS sediments, however no notable mineralization was found.
    • Grab samples from a massive sulphide slab showing high grade values.
  • 2008

    Discovery of the Massive Sulphide Horizon
    • A prospecting and sampling program identified at least two mineralized or sulphide-bearing altered horizons which vary between 2-4m thick and can be traced across the outcrop exposures for at least 100m. Within these horizons, pods of massive sulphides occur and it is strongly suspected that these are the source of the dislodged VMS boulder occurrences throughout the area.
    • (104 samples in total) returned several anomalous results with the following table representing selective grab samples from the more significant copper rich showings. The most significant of these sample include:
  • 2011

    Drill Program
    • drilling targeted the slab where exposed in a talus slope beneath a cliff. The slab appears to have broken away from the adjacent cliff, based on results from this drill program.
