- 31 km2 property located 56 km southeast of Carmacks in an underexplored part of central Yukon
- Extensive copper and gold soil anomalism, including 800x 400 m of >400 ppm copper and >0.1 g/t gold in soil;
- Rock samples have peak values of 52.4 g/t gold, 1.60% copper, 228 ppm molybdenum, and 41.7 g/t silver; and
- Ten hand trenches over a 400 x 250 m area averaged 0.22% copper and 0.34 g/t gold (weighted by length).

Catch Geology and Mineralization
The Property lies within the Quesnel Terrane and is juxtaposed against the Stikine Terrane by the 1,000+ km long, deep seated, crustal scale strike-slip Teslin-Thibert fault approximately 3 km west of the Property boundary. The Quesnel and Stikine Terranes are characterized by similar Late Triassic to early Jurassic volcanic-plutonic arc complexes that are well-endowed with copper-gold-molybdenum porphyry deposits (ex. Mt. Milligan, KSM, Red Chris, Mt. Polley, Highland Valley Copper, etc.).
The Property is underlain by augite phyric basalt of the Semenof Formation, centered on a 7 x 3 km regional magnetic high. Bedrock exhibits strong propylitic alteration and intense localized oxidation, brecciation and malachite staining.
The geology, alteration and mineralization observed throughout the Property are all indicative of a nearby copper-gold±molybdenum bearing porphyry system.
