|Sample Number||Channel Length (m)||Au (g/t)|
The Boyden prospect is the first in a series of showings targeted by the Company. The outcrop was cleaned, stripped and mapped in detail over an approximately 30 m lengths. A continuous mineralization quartz vein was identified and channel sampled with a rock saw at approximately 3 m intervals. Channel samples were collected with a saw depth of approximately 0.1 meters with an average sample width of approximately 0.7 m. Channels were cut across the vein in a perpendicular direction. The vein is proximal to mafic and felsic volcanic contacts and the area is cross cut by later mafic dykes.
