Geology

The Katie Project hosts high-grade zinc-lead-copper-gold-silver stockwork vein occurrences typical of VMS feeder zones. Rock sampling from a 2015 trenching program yielded 24% Zn, 3.3% Pb, 0.30 g/t Au, 279 and g/t Ag from an angular float sample and 3.8 % Zn, 7.6 % Pb, 0.39 g/t Au and 159 g/t Ag from a outcrop grab sample.   In addition, historic samples include a grab with 1.7 % Zn, 0.60% Pb, 5.0 g/t Au and  33g/t Ag, and a channel sample with 11% Zn, 0.38% Pb, 0.20% Cu, 33 g/t Ag, 1.1 g/t Au over 1.3 m.    The recent trenching program expanded the area of mineralization provided key information on the structure and volcanic stratigraphy within the local area and will contribute significantly to exploration efforts going forward.
