LONG BAY AREA
At the Long Bay target area located approximately 1.5 kilometers northwest of the Eldorado/Echo Bay uranium-silver mines, sampling and mapping indicated potential for uranium within a stockwork vein system along an east-west trending structure in andesitic tuffs with strong hematitic alteration. Two drill holes, LB-08-01 and LB-08-02, were completed for a total of 125 meters in the Long Bay area. LB-08-02 intercepted andesitic tuffs and breccias with strong hematitic alteration with minor scattered sulfides. Drill hole LB-08-01 intercepted an unmapped diabase dike but returned anomalous copper values along fractures zones.
