The Road Zone consists of four historical showings containing numerous Au occurrences. These occurrences have returned individual assay results up to 85 g/t Au and 32 g/t Au and 27 g/t Au. Chapel Island Nickel showings grab samples assayed up to 3.05% Ni.
The Lost Swamp showing is composed of a silicified and carbonate altered Coaker porphyry that contains very, fine grained arsenopyrite, with assay results returning values up to 149.8 g/t Au and 23.3 g/t Ag. At the Swamp Zone, a total of 35 channels were cut for a combined length of 35.9 m at 8 different locations in the old trench. The best results from the sampling were 5.2 m of 484 ppb Au and 0.9 m of 3.9 g/t Au.
