Chester Copper-Polymetallic Feeder Deposit

The copper-polymetallic feeder deposit is an east-west trending gently west plunging cigar shaped deposit within an alteration zone approximately 75 meters (246 ft.) or more in thickness and greater than 200 meters (656 ft.) in width. It extends west of the current planned drilling area for more than 1 kilometer ( > 3,280 ft.). At the east end it lies close to surface and at the western extent of the company's drilling it is more than 400 meters (1,320 ft.) below surface. The copper-polymetallic mineralization within the feeder deposit varies from low to high grade.
