The Big Bar Epithermal Gold project is located in the north end of the Spences Bridge Gold Belt. Precious metals occur in epithermal brecciated quartz-carbonate zones. Drilling intersected 4.49 gpt gold across 3 meters and 2.50 grams per tonne gold across 9 meters. Soil anomalies and well mineralised float occur outside of the main area of prior work activity. 

High gold-silver grades in quartz-ankerite veins with chalcopyrite and pyrite veinlets (samples range from 0.69 to 101.5 g/t Au. With Ag from 0.37 to 96 g/t, and Cu 200 ppm to >1.0%). Significant soil geochemical anomalies have been defined in the claim group. Sulphide minerals associated with gold and silver mineralization includes pyrite, chalcopyrite, sphalerite and arsenopyrite. The coincident soils anomalies potentially outline an epithermal mineralization system.

CARBON QUEEN  Crystalline flake graphite occurs in abundant concentrations in biotite graphitic schist, graphitic quartzite, marble and graphitic biotite gneiss. Zn-Pb-Ag - Sed-Ex (Broken Hill Type) base metal mineralized stratigraphy.

The massive sulfide-oxide layers have been traced, with covered intervals, for about 4.8 kilometers  involving a vertical distance of about 850 meters. The original Cottonbelt zone lies within reverted crown granted claims. Significant REE bearing Carbonatite layers are also known to occur on the property. Unclassified reserves of the Cotton Belt zone are just less than 1 million tonnes grading 6 per cent lead, 2 per cent zinc and 50 grams per tonne silver Resources have been estimated at 725,000 tonnes grading 11 per cent combined lead and zinc and 58.3 grams per tonne silver... That’s just over 1.6 million ounces of contained silver.

The property hosts an 1800-metre-long intermittent massive sulphide horizon mineralised with Pb and Zn with high Ag. The mineralization consists of zones of massive sulphide about 1 m thick in an envelope of sparser mineralisation which may be up to several metres thick. The main massive sulphide mineral zone grades as high as 15% Pb, 23% Zn and 293 g tonne (9.4 oz/t) Ag. Significant untested REE bearing Carbonatite layers are also known to occur on the property. 

The Golden Contact Group consists of six zones of High Grade Au-Cu-Ag-Zn +/- Co Skarn overprinted with high grade gold veins. Plus, numerous open cuts and trenches that expose mineralisation. The property also hosts three known areas of copper silver gold in a Porphyry type environment. The project is located about 7.5 Km from the Catface Copper Moly, Gold Deposit. Grades of 334.3 gpt (9.75 oz/ton) Au, 397.4 g/t (11.59 oz/ton) Ag, 5.17% Pb, and 2.92% Zn were reported.

Granite-hosted porphyry Cu-Mo and related Cu-Ag-Au-Mo vein systems on the property have received most of the previous work. At least 11 associated high-grade vein systems have been explored by short underground workings and surface trenching. Massive bornite and chalcopyrite is associated with the quartz veining but are also found as blebs within vugs of the muscovite granite.  High grade copper greater than 50% with 23 oz/t Ag and gold running up to about  15 grams per tonne.

BEARPAW RIDGE Magmatic Fe-Ti+/-V oxide deposit. Titanium: As indicated, chemical analysis shows that magnetic titanium (ilmenite) is present in quantities which range from 10 - 20% of recoverable magnetite and that two to five times the amount of non magnetic titanium (Rutile) is present. This project has excellent blue sky potential Abundant geological information is available.

The KEYSTONE COPPER project is underlain by the same metasedimentary and metavolcanic rocks of the Lardeau Group that hosts the past producing Goldstream Mine. The Goldstream Besshi Cu-Zn massive sulphide deposit was discovered in 1972. In 1975 Noranda Exploration Co. Ltd. optioned the property and later the same year outlined a deposit of 3.175 mt grading 4.49% Cu and 3.24% Zn and 20g/t Ag. The past producing Goldstream mine is located 30 Km north of the Keystone project in similar stratigraphy.

High Grade Oxide-Sulphide Zinc-Lead-Silver mineralization occurs over 8 kilometres of strike length in favourable dolomitic carbonates of the Cunningham Formation. The area hosts in excess of 65 mineral occurrences, some of which display considerable aerial extent as revealed by surface stripping. New scientific breakthroughs have raised battery developers’ interest in the potential of zinc as a key component in energy storage technology – and a potential replacement for lithium.

The GOLDEN APEX covers several known high-grade gold skarn and vein occurrences, covering Apex Mountain and the surrounding area. The property is located mostly above tree-line on prominent east-west trending ridges and slopes, between Apex Mountain and Beaconsfield Mountain near the famous Hedley Gold Camp. The famous Nickel Plate Mine at Hedley is 10 Km away and produced 2.5 million ounces of gold from underground and surface operations from 1904 to 1996.

HI - MARS Porphyry Cu +/- Mo +/- Au - The Hi Mars copper molybdenum porphyry property consist of at least six showings of copper and Molybdenum in a porphyry environment. The property consists of six main mineralised zones and a high grade trench zone.

Recent new logging has opened up new areas for exploration. The property is located near Powell River BC.
