MTO TITLES: 1101879, 1101588, 1101878
- Several minfiles occur on the property including; 092HSW032, 092HSW053 and 092HSW063.
- Property is one kilometre and on strike of a past producing high grade gold mine, The Boundary - Red Mountain Mine is located just over the border in the USA.
- In 1929 two adits were driven on quartz veins carrying gold, copper and molybdenum values on Canyon Creek. This creek is accessible by the Slesse Creek Trail.
- On Glacier Creek a tunnel was extended by 46 metres in order to strike a gold bearing vein. A drift was run for 6 metres into a zone of altered slate. The zone is cut by a felsic dike and both it and the slate are mineralized with pyrite.
- The Jumbo reverted crown grant occurrence is located on the south west side of Slesse Creek, approximately 500 metres north of the Canada-U.S. border and at an elevation of 815 metres.
- At the Jumbo adit is struck on an iron-rich argillite. The first adit, followed a seam of quartz, approximately 30 centimetres wide, for approximately 30 metres. A second adit, approximately 150 metres lower in elevation was driven for approximately 18 metres into iron-stained argillite.
- In 1988, a mineralized area named the Torb zone was discovered in a shear zone on the eastern edge of the Jumbo Crown grant. This zone consists of a sulphide lenses stained with malachite and containing chalcopyrite, pyrite, minor pyrrhotite and possibly bornite.
- From the Torb zone a rock grab sample (103752H) assayed 22.90 grams per tonne gold and greater than 1 per cent copper. Two other samples (64757 and 64758) from the zone yielded up to 7.4 grams per tonne gold, 9.08 per cent copper and 38.4 grams per tonne silver (Assessment Report 18237).
- 180 meters north of the torb zone another sample (103751H) assayed 14.10 grams per tonne gold and 0.31 per cent copper (Assessment Report 18237).
- In 2008, two samples (08KRP007 and 08KRP008) from the Torb zone yielded up to 1.68 grams per tonne gold, 12.25 grams per tonne silver and 1.03 per cent copper (Assessment Report 30147).
- In 2010, a 0.4 metre chip sample (08KRP611) assayed 2.14 grams per tonne gold, 25.4 grams per tonne silver and 6.11 per cent copper (Assessment Report 31937).
- Another area of mineralization, referred to as the West Torb zone, outcrops a couple hundred metres to the west of the Torb zone and consists of graphitic schist hosting pyrite and pyrrhotite.
- The property was first explored in the late 1890's. Scince minimal work has been done other than limited rock and soil geochemical sampling programs. This property is the perfect candidate for detailed prospecting, drone surveys, geochemical programs and backpack drilling.
