Brett Zone High Grade Zinc
The Brett zone is situated immediately northwest of the Mount Reed stock. Exploration work on the Brett massive sulphide zone comprised 14 line-km of soil sampling, 14 line-km of magnetometer surveying and nine diamond drill holes.
B Zone Silver, Lead, Zinc Copper Bismuth
The ‘B’ Zone is situated on Mineral Tenure 510712 at the northern end of the Property. Trenching, drilling and underground development has shown that skarn-hosted mineralization occurs as three lenses with an aggregate strike length of 308 m, an average true width of 8 m, and an average dip of -40° with strong vertical continuity.
In 1972 a shipment of approximately 90 kg of diamond drill core from the B Zone was submitted by Della Mines to Lakefield Research of Canada Limited. Lakefield determined the head grade to be: 0.75% copper, 0.47% lead, 3.90% zinc, 0.33% bismuth and 120 gpt silver. Lakefield found that better metal recoveries were obtained by selective flotation.
