About Sheep Creek

The Sheep Creek deposit is located about 27 km north of White Sulphur Springs along a well maintained gravel road and within two miles of U.S. Highway 89. The Sheep Creek property consists of approximately 5,775 acres of fee simple lands and mining claims in central Montana. The property contains sediment-hosted zones of massive sulfide mineralization originally explored by Cominco American Inc. and BHP during the 1980's and early 1990's. Historical drilling encountered significant zones of strata-bound copper sulfide with cobalt in multiple bedded pyrite zones in the lower part of the Precambrian Belt Supergroup; this same stratigraphic unit hosts the Sullivan zinc-lead-silver deposit in southeastern B.C. The Company, in a remarkably short period of time, has been able to produce an Inferred Resource on the Upper Copper Zone (please see the Company's Press Release dated January 6, 2011).
