History:
1966-67: Trenching, 80 feet d.d. in 1 hole by G. Poirier.
1968: Trenching and 61m adit by Gould Coppermine Ltd.

Geology:
A quartz chalcocite, specularite vein cuts Gowganda Sediments. The vein strikes E and dips 70S to 90. A test pit in 1967 exposed the vein for a length of about 10 feet, a width of 3.5 feet, of which 1 foot was massive chalcocite and specularite.
