On the CR property, Noranda carried out a regional exploration program in the 1908’s following up a BC government geochemical sampling survey and located an area strongly anomalous in gold and arsenic in an area of historical placer gold mining. Of note in their initial work was the discovery on a number of logging road cuts and landings of chalcedonic quartz veinlets and vugs associated with red-brown weathered quartz-carbonate altered zones. Follow-up grid soil sampling outlined a 1.0 km by 0.5 km arsenic anomaly with scattered anomalous gold values up to 1300 ppb (1.3 g/t) gold. No outcrop was located on the grid. Heavy mineral soil/till sampling by Noranda along road cuts elsewhere on the CR property returned highly anomalous gold values up to 3,300 ppb (3.3 g/t) gold in areas with little to no outcrop.
In 2014 Eastfield completed an IP geophysical survey across the large arsenic geochemical anomaly and outlined an 800m by 200m open ended chargability anomaly trending northwesterly across the top edge of the geochemical anomaly. Broad spaced soil sampling completed in 2018 indicates probable northwest extension to this anomaly.
