Excellent Blue Sky Potential
- Borys Lake Trench 4: Eight samples collected returning the highest Zinc values ranging from 1.92% to 21.3% Zn. Silver mineralization ranging from 5.3 to 56.7 g/t Ag.
- Borys Lake Trench 8: Five samples collected returning the highest silver values Silver mineralization ranging from 70.2 to 184 g/t Ag.
- Cominco Zone A: Outcrop sample collected was not anomalous in geochemistry.
- Cominco Zone B: Copper values resulted up to 0.61% Cu and silver up to 7.6 g/t Ag
Borys Lake Trench 4
Borys Lake Trench 4: Eight samples were collected for analysis from Borys Lake Trench 4 located at the SW end of the Borys Lake Main Zone.
Overall, Trench 4 returned the highest Zinc values, with assays ranging from 1.92% to 21.3% Zn (sample BLT4-1).
- Silver mineralization was strong ranging from 5.3 – 56.7 g/t Ag.
- Historic results from 1963 returned a maximum zinc value of 9.36 % Zn and a maximum silver value of 24.4 g/t Ag.
Borys Lake Trench 8
Borys Lake Trench 8: Five samples were collected for analysis from Trench 8 located 1km to the SW of Trench 4 and is associated with the Will A Zone.
Overall, Trench 8 returned the highest silver values compared to other trenches sampled.
- All five samples returned high-grade silver mineralization with assays ranging from 70.2 to 184 g/t Ag.
- Historic assays from the same trench, returned a maximum of 43.1 g/t Ag.

Cominco Zone Surface Trenches
Located ~3km to the south along a parallel trend to Borys Lake.
The Cominco zones occur within a Greywacke-conglomerate and are underexplored compared to the Borys Lake zone. Historically, two main areas of interest were discovered along this trend, referred to as the Cominco A and Cominco B zones respectively from SW to NE.
Overall, the Cominco trend appears to be more anomalous in Copper and silver and to a lesser degree in zinc and lead compared to the Borys Lake trend. Comparative highlights of analytical results are compared with historic results in Tables 3 and 4.
Cominco Zone A: The historic Trench 7 was not located in the field. However, an outcrop sample collected ~90m to the southwest of the assumed Trench 7 location was collected. This sample was not anomalous in geochemistry.
Cominco Zone B: Historic Trench 1 of the Cominco B zone was located and sampled. Four samples were taken as continuous 1m channel-chips each, across the width of the outcrop.
- Assay results returned copper values up to 0.61% Cu and silver up to 7.6 g/t Ag (sample CZBT1-3).
- It is of significant note that historic Trench 4 (which was not located in the field but is believed to be ~75m to the NE of Trench 1) was the subject of drilling in 1967.
- Historic drill hole DDH1 targeting below Trench 4 was reported to have intersected 0.71% Cu over 6.1m.
