Early work on the graphitic horizon consisted of some trenching and l diamond drill hole, done for assessment work. Westcoast Charters of Vancouver did more trenching in 1982, and Princeton Resources continued with an extensive diamond drilling program from 1983 until 1986. A pilot mill was established on site and during the winter of 1987.
