Memphis Creek, British Columbia
Lead, Silver, Zinc

TThe property consists of 521 ha (1,288 acres), located between the communities of Slocan and Silverton, immediately east of Slocan Lake. The property includes 5 MINFILE occurrences described as polymetallic veins localized within granite of the Middle Jurassic Nelson Suite. The mineralized occurrences document high grade silver in association with lead and zinc. Limited gold was reported but with modern techniques identification of high tonnage, low grade mineralization is possible. In addition, a location adjacent to the regionally significant Slocan Lake Fault is interpreted to present an opportunity for identification of orogenic-type mineralization. Finally, the property is located along the southwestern edge of the informally designated Silver Slocan Mining Camp.

The property is located along the southern margin of a large intrusive body interpreted to be correlated to the Jurassic Kushanax Batholith (part of the Nelson Suite). The property was acquired for speculative intrusion-related Gold and/or polymetallic vein potential.

A limited, preliminary program was completed on the property, comprised of a collection of 176 soil and 65 silt samples over 5 soil lines and 4 silt lines. Anomalous values were documented, with maximum values as follows:

Silts
Molybdenum less than 8.0 ppm
Copper less than 69 ppm
Lead less than 303.1 ppm
Zinc less than 211 ppm
Silver less than 0.8 ppm
Gold less than 4.3 ppb (High 189.7 ppb)
Tungsten less than 3.5 ppm


Soils
Molybdenum less than 6.9 ppm
Copper less than 200.2 ppm
Lead less than 377 ppm
Zinc less than 480 ppm
Silver less than 5.9 ppm
Gold less than 5.2 ppb (High 30.5 ppb)
Tungsten less than 1.8 ppm
