Answering some Sudbury 2.0 FAQs

We’ve received some questions about the exploration plans now that we have located a mineralized Sudbury Type Quartz Diorite Dyke at Laura Creek on our 100% property (see news release dated Sept 12, 2019). These days we can use geochemical fingerprinting to show that this dyke is a Sudbury Offset Dyke, which is an exciting development. We have decided to bring in an excavator to remove the soil and vegetation from the dyke so that we can sample the dyke in greater detail. Back in the early 1900’s someone went to a lot of trouble to excavate a shaft into the dyke, likely because it contains coarse gold.
