Exploration trenching started in the JD area beginning of October and progressed to the Golden Crown area at the end of the October. Trenching was targeted to test gold in soil and geophysical VLF conductors at both the JD and Golden Crown areas that were identified during historic programs.
The JD area is located south of the historic Phoenix copper gold mine. At JD, the 2020 trenching exposed a zone of sulphide-quartz mineralization 0.5 metre wide and 50 metres northwest along strike of the main zone. Elsewhere, zones of disseminated pyrite and quartz associated with listwanite altered ultramafic rock were encountered. Assays are pending.

Up to three parallel sulphide-quartz mineralized zones were exposed in trenches and located 100 metres along strike to the northwest of the main zones. Assays are pending.
