Work History

Staked as Gray cl (Y816) in Mar/66 by Zippx Syndicate. The adjoining Ram cl (Y8042) were staked to the east in May by Anvil Mg Corp L and the Tipp cl (Y9696) were staked to the west in July and Aug/66 by Shannon ML. Zippx flew an airborne mag and EM survey in Jun/66.
Anvil's claims were staked on an airborne anomaly indicated by a survey flown in 1965, and geochem and IP surveys were conducted on the group in 1967. Shannon conducted bulldozer trenching on its claims. Anvil conducted linecutting on the RAM group in 1972 and added the Ewe cl (Y67029) in Aug/72.

Capsule Geology

The claims were staked in an area of extensive overburden and probably cover a contact between Cambro-Ordovician quartzose siltstone and chert and the mid-Cretaceous Anvil Batholith. To the southeast, these units are overthrust by shaly limestone and calcareous phyllite of the Cambro-Ordovician Rabbitkettle Formation, and associated basalt, tuff and breccia .
