The property includes three claims valid for a year, situated 40 km southwest of Houston BC on a rounded mountain top known as Herd
Dome. The Herd Dome property has at least three known significant breccia copper showings in Hazelton Volcanics that were discovered
by the late Frank Onucki in the 1970s. The breccia copper mineralization is believed to represent the upper level expression of a porphyry
copper-moly-gold-silver deposit. The three known breccia copper showings have never been drill-tested.
Strong widespread copper mineralization occurs within a prominent pipe-like structure that measures several hundred
metres in diameter. Locally, high silver values accompany the copper mineralization. The mineralization that exists in the Pipe zone occurs
as chalcopyrite, bornite, covellite, malachite and chalcocite. Grab chip sampling from an exploration program in 1982 produced results
o 15metres grading better than 1 per cent copper,
o 80 metres of 0.42 per cent copper and
o 25 metres of 0.42 per cent copper.
o Sampling by Placer Dome Inc. in 1992 produced six metres grading 0.55 per cent copper.
is located about 1000 metres east of the Pipe zone. Chalcopyrite-pyrite mineralization appears to be associated with
andesitic tuffaceous rocks. Chalcopyrite-pyrite-malachite mineralization occurs as fracture fillings and as veinlets in porphyritic and
fragmental andesitic outcrops in the vicinity of Bragg Lake.
Bragg Lake Zone:
Chalcopyrite-pyrite-malachite mineralization has been observed as fracture fillings and as veinlets in porphyritic
and fragmental andesitic outcrops in the vicinity of Bragg Lake.
Gossan zone: This showing presents as a spectacular yellowish-red gossan located on the
south-east edge of “Franks Peak”
