Northern British Columbia

The Holy Cross property consists of a single 20 unit, 500 hectare claim located in the Omineca Mining Division of north central British Columbia. It is located approximately 145 kilometres west of Prince George and is readily accessed by a network of forest service roads 33 kilometres south from Fraser Lake.
Noranda Exploration discovered gold mineralization on the Holy Cross prospect in 1987. They identified several areas of silicified quartz vein in a resistant rhyolite dome that returned gold concentrations to 3.5 g/t. To date, four zones of mineralization have been identified within a 3km by 4km area. Trenching has returned broad zones of gold mineralization, including 1.0 g/t over 8.5 metres in Trench 1. Additional sampling by subsequent exploration programs has produced several high concentrations of gold, with a high value of 24.0 g/t gold. These bonanza gold grades, coupled with the bulk tonnage potential make the Holy Cross property an attractive prospect that requires additional exploration. No drill testing has been conducted on the property to test the subsurface extent of mineralization.
A program of prospecting, geological mapping and trenching of mineralized areas will be done prior to detailed drilling of the prospects.
