Work History

Staked as King cl (Y63968) in Nov/71, following reconnaissance mapping, gravity and geochem surveys, by Anvil Synd (Can Reserve O & GL, Aquitaine C of Can L, Can Southern Pet L, Occidental Mls L, and Husky OL), which explored with more mapping, grid soil sampling and one 488 m hole in 1972.

Capsule Geology

The claims cover the contact between Cambrian-Ordovician quartzose siltstone and chert near the mid-Cretaceous Anvil Batholith. The hole intersected unmineralized hornfels.
