The Chief vein is about 150 meters long and trends and dips in the same directions as the Golden Arrow although is somewhat smaller in width (averaging 0.40 meters). Its pinches and swells along strike with gold values from the grab samples (a total of 86 samples taken) offering up to 163.56 ppm (163.56 g/t) and with a number of samples ranging from 6ppm to 30 ppm.

The Nkwanta concession is located in the Tarkwa-Nsuaem Municipality in the Western Region of Ghana and was historically explored and exploited for gold in a limited manner over the past 80 years. New efforts commenced in late 2009 and included re-cutting of the previous geochemical soil gridlines for ground geophysical surveys plus drilling and sampling of abandoned underground workings and pits. The current development program is aimed at extending exploratory knowledge of the underlying geology in order to position the project for eventual commercial production.
