Historic Workings

Since 1951, several exploration surveys were carried out on the property including mapping, geochemical sampling, airborne and ground geophysics as well as 49 diamond drill holes.

Economic Geology

The only known showing on the property (Lac Laynes-NO) was discovered by prospecting in 1990. Assays showed values of 0.99% Cu and 8.0 g/t Ag in a sulphide rich shear zone.

In 2014, one hole (17931-14-02) drilled by Falco intersected a gold bearing tectonic breccia with values of 0.79 g/t Au over 14.0 metres, including 3.18 g/t Au over 1.2 metres.
