This property was originally known as the Windle-Liedke prospect and was
acquired in 1939 by Edgemont Mines, Limited, the name of which was changed
in November of that year to Edgemont Molybdenite Mines, Limited. Edgemont Mines by late in 1939 had done a considerable amount of trenching and test-pitting, sunk a vertical shaft 10 by 15 feet to a depth of 40 feet, and done
1,000 feet of diamond-drilling.
The most recent work, in 1942, by Edgemont Molybdenite Mines, consists of
two trenches trending N. 250 E- at the north end of the workings. The south
trench is from 2 to 5 feet wide, 4 feet deep, and 35 feet long. The north trench, 10 feet to the north, is from 10 to 15 feet wide and 45 feet long and now largely filled with waste rock. (ARV53)
