This property is located in the Gowan Township in the Porcupine Mining Division Ontario, approximately 16 km due east of Glencore's Kidd Creek Mine. The Kidd Creek Mine is considered to be a world class copper zinc volcanagenic massive sulphide deposit. The Kidd Mine has been in production for over 50 years and produced in excess of 150 million tons of ore. (ref. Kidd Operations Glencore). The Gowan Property is strategically located covering a prospective package of felsic volcanic rocks similar to those which host the Kidd Creek Mine. The property hosts a number of historical drill hole intersections with significant copper, zinc, gold and silver intercepts. No significant work has been conducted on the property since the late 1970s. It is anticipated that "state of the art" geophysical surveys will be conducted on the project in the future to evaluate the property's potential at depth and further examine the extent of known mineralization.
