Ingenika/Swannell Property Summary:
The Ingenika Property is located in the Swannell Range of the Omineca Mountains in the Omineca Mining Division, 103 kilometres north-northwest of Germansen Landing. There is excellent access to the property as a result of intense logging activity in the area. Access to the property is gained by driving 216 km north from Mackenzie along the west side of Williston Lake on a main logging haulage road.

There have been numerous exploration programs completed in the area focused on the Ingenika, Onward and Swannell showings. There was a resource estimate completed in 1969 on the Ingenika Mine of 22,677 tonnes grading 119.9g/t silver, 9.8% lead and 6.1% zinc (Minfile 094C 002). The mineralization of the Onward and Onward South Showings is in the same Lower Cambrian limestone host as the Ingenika mineralization and consist of galena, sphalerite and pyrite but differs in that it appears to cross-cut the limestone. At the Onward Showing, on the south side of Delkutz Lake, the mineralization exposed by trenching is a siderite, quartz-flooded brecciated vein system with galena, pyrite and sphalerite mineralization.

Mineralization at the Onward South trenches and old shaft, located 500m south of the Onward showing, consists of sphalerite, galena and pyrite cross-cutting the stratigraphy and confined to a brecciated vein system. Grab sampling at the Onward Showing assayed up to 64.2% lead and 1,870g/t silver and at the Onward South shaft grab sampling assayed up to 25.62% zinc, 16.28% lead and 139.8g/t silver.

Drilling by Selkirk Metals Corp. in the Swannell Showing area intersected several base metal horizons returning assays including 5.82% zinc, 3.17% lead, 28.2g/t silver over 3.0 metres and 14.5% zinc, 4.3% lead and 37.7g/t silver over 1.7 metres and 5.83% zinc, 1.29% lead, 15.3g/t silver over 9.6 metres.

Exploration consisting of a Mobile Metal Ion soil survey and a 3-D Inversion I.P. survey were completed in 2004 but drilling of the several anomalies intersected conductive sediments instead of base metal mineralization. Additional exploration to expand on known mineralization as well as drilling of untested anomalies has been recommended.
