Lardeau Creek
Gold, Silver, Platinum, Nickel, Copper, Zinc

The Lardeau Creek Property is located near the head of Lardeau Creek approximately 10 km east of Trout Lake, British Columbia. The property is situated within the former Trout Lake Mining Division, a well known Kootenay Silver Camp, and is approximately 4 km north of the company's Silver Cup Ridge property.

Geologically, the claims are located within Paleozoic and Mesozoic aged rnetasediments and metavolcanics which form a complex, arcuate fold belt known as the Kootenay Arc. This belt extends from Northern Washington to North of Revelstoke, B.C. and hosts most of the important lead-zinc deposits in southeastern B.C.

As documented in BC Assessment Report 14561, local prospectors have reported two potentially significant types of mineralization on the property. These include an ultramafic unit which in places hosts platinum mineralization, and a NW striking shear zone which hosts galena, sphalerite and pyrite as well as tetrahedrite, with quartz and sulfide contents of up to 75%.

Laboratory analysis of collected chip samples have assayed up to 1.25 ounces per ton gold, 235 ounces per ton silver, 0.12% nickel, 0.32% copper, 5.96% zinc, and 62.82% lead. Two ultramafic horizons (possible host for platinum mineralization) were also located and traced for 600 metres each along strike.
