Project Summary

The Merit Property comprises four mineral claims (1,907 hectares) and contains three anomalous zones of alteration and mineralization – Discovery Hill, Sullivan Ridge and the West Zone.Sullivan Ridge, the main zone of mineralization, is characterized by strong silica and carbonate alteration of andesitic breccias that host a 1-2 m wide, north trending, gold-bearing quartz vein zone that can be traced for over 80 m.A trenching program in 2005 across this zone returned anomalous gold values of 7.24 g/t over 1.8 m, including 14.94 g/t over 0.6 m. Sullivan Ridge was drill tested by two diamond drill holes in 2015.One drill hole returned two 0.5 m long sections, one grading 0.44 g/t gold and the other grading 0.25 g/t gold.
