GEOLOGY

this is a description of the potential mining claim property across from port Alice on the slopes of Wolfenden Mountain – Geology:

The property is largely underlain by Lower Jurassic Bonanza Group volcanics that overly Upper Triassic to Lower Jurassic Parsons Bay Formation sediments with interbedded volcanics. Small Early to Middle Jurassic Island Plutonic Suite quartz diorite stocks and dykes occur on the property and area. The Parsons Bay sediments outcrop mainly in the northeastern part of the property. East-northeastern faults transect the area. The most significant of these faults is the Coqueis Fault in the central part of the property.

Mineralization on the property occurs in the lower units of the Bonanza Volcanics and at and close to the ENE faults and their subsiduary faults. Mineralization is often accompanied by moderate silicification with strong fracturing to brecciation and has been classified as epithermal. Main values are in gold, silver and zinc. The main showing, Coqueis Showing, is exposed in a creek bed for 65 meters by 5 meters. Assay values range to 3.55 g/t Au, 11.8 g/t Ag and 9.1% Zn. No hand or mechanical trenching has been done to extend mineralized localities.
