A well defined, NW-SE trending chargeability anomaly was defined north of the showings over a strike length of at least 1.8 km. The anomaly is associated with a distinct resistivity low and appears to strengthen significantly at depth. The source of the chargeability anomaly has not been established. The anomaly is offset from the known mineralization; however it has the same general trend and could be a related mineralized feature.
Additional mapping and prospecting will be completed on the property to optimize drill targets in the area of the anomaly and the known surface showings.
