Black Creek

The Black Creek property is situated in southwest Parkin Township and eastern Hutton Township approximately 20 km north of Capreol which is 30 km north of Sudbury. The property has excellent all-weather road access. Black Creek comprises 63 mining claims (93 mining claim units). The property is characterized by interbedded altered and mineralized Archean felsic and mafic volcanic rocks hosting disseminated, blebs and laminae of sphalerite, chalcopyrite and galena.

Historical work on the property indicated a gold bearing quartz vein approximately 400 m east of Fraser Lake which returned  an assay in a grab sample of up to 0.69 g/t Au and 9.00% Cu. The old Vermillion River bed hosts gold particles with up to 3.65 g/t Au – Hitec Ore Processing recovered 2.17 g/t Au from an unknown sample size using a Knelson Concentrator. A 2003 VTEM survey of the property indentified six target zones – some of which are un-tested.

Future Activities Contemplated for the Property

Two diamond drill holes were completed on two VTEM targets as well as stripping and channel sampling on a new showing called BC#1. Drill hole BC-12-002 is contemplated in 2012, as well as auger drilling to test for gold and rare earth elements in soil debris.
