The Laurion Team completed geological mapping and the prospecting of historic mineralized “veins” and their extensions, as well as new areas in the less explored northern claims.

The northern claims revealed a number of new mineralized quartz vein occurrences.  These vein sets were systematically manually stripped and sampled.

Outcrop stripping, mapping and sampling was also done in the southern claims on a portion of the “85-A2” quartz vein system (the “85-A2”) located 750m Northeast of the past producing Nos. 3, 10 and “M” gold-quartz veins of the Sturgeon River Mine.

This key field work program was a foundational program of a three-phased exploration program proposed over the next 36 months, and is aimed at the definition of the near surface gold-polymetallic mineral resources.

Initial reconnaissance highlights of the campaign were previously announced by the Corporation.
