The Portland Property, the largest claim block, comprises 2,416 hectares and covers both the Victor and Portland MINFILE occurrences. The property is located approximately 19 kilometres northeast of Stewart and is traversed by Hwy 37A. Both targets have been subject to historical surface and underground activity dating from the early 1900’s, but remain relatively unexplored by modern means, with only one assessment report covering the claim area, filed in 2006.
The Portland prospect is located about 1 kilometre north of Hwy 37A, with historical work reported from 1910 through 1931. Activities focused on a north-striking, westerly-dipping quartz vein, up to 0.6 metres wide, in a zone of brecciated argillite. The vein was exposed in a 60-metre-long tunnel, with pyrite reported as the principal sulphide. A grab sample assayed 8.6 g/t Au and 432 g/t Ag. (1) (9)*
The Victor Showing is located just south of Hwy 37A, 21 kilometres northeast of Stewart, with historic work reported from 1909 to 1910. The showing comprises a series of open cuts and an adit at least 43 metres in length. Mineralization at the adit comprises a fracture zone at the contact of a porphyry dike in argillite and hosts at least two lenses of nearly massive sphalerite-galena. The northwestern lens is 6.1 metres long, 4.6 metres deep and 0.25 metre wide. The southeastern lens is about 4.6 metres long and 0.1 to 0.2 metre wide. A grab sample from the adit dump assayed trace gold, 582.9 g/t Ag, 44.0 % Pb and 22.6% Zn. (2) (7)*

Kelly Girl Claim
Approximately 3 kilometres to the west of the Portland Property, the Kelly Girl Claim comprises 36 ha and covers the Kelly Girl MINFILE showing. In 1990, an 80-centimetre chip sample assayed 3.21 g/t Au and 3.4 g/t Ag. A grab sample from nearby float assayed 4.54 g/t Au, 71.8 g/t Ag, 7.92% Cu. (3) (4) (5)*
Lucky Date Claim
Approximately 3.1 kilometres to the southeast of the Portland Property, the Lucky Date Claim comprises 54 ha and covers the plotted location of three historic MINFILE occurrences: St. Elmo, Jutland, and Lucky Date. The exact locations of these occurrences are not known, and exploration activity is reported from the 1920’s to the 1940’s, however there are no recent assessment reports covering the occurrences. (10)
On the Lucky Date showing, a channel sample collected in 1946(?) from the I.X.L. quartz vein, assayed 0.34 g/t Au, 185.1 g/t Ag, 0.15% Cu, 1.6% Pb, 6.9% Zn and 0.13% Cd (cadmium) across a width of 0.76 metre.
The Goat Vein extends over a length of 240 metres from 1067 to 1189 metres elevation. A channel sample taken in 1946(?) from an adit at 1067 metres elevation, assayed 75.4 g/t Ag, 2.90% Pb, 3.9 % Zn and 0.05% cadmium (with 0.07% Cu and nil Au) across a width of 0.71 metres. The location of this vein is not specified in the historical reports. (6) (8)*
The St. Elmo Minfile is designated by BC MINFILE as a past producer with a 13.6 tonne shipment of sorted ore mined in 1947 averaging 4,217 g/t Ag, 17.5% Pb and 22.8 % Zn. A chip sample from the upper lens assayed 2972.6 g/t Ag, 8.3 % Pb, 4.6% Zn, 0.8% Cu and 0.69 g/t Au across 0.18 metres. (11)*
