The Beaverdell mineral claims exist surrounding the town of Beaverdell and the historic Beaverdell silver-lead-zinc-gold (Ag-Pb-Zn-Au) camp shown in Figure 1. Silver production for the main Beaverdell Silver Mine was close to 35 million ounces (Moz) of Ag with greater than 30 million pounds (Mlbs) of Zn and 25 Mlbs of Pb from 1896 to 1991 (BC Government Minfile Report for 082ESW030). The Company's Beaverdell claims exist to the northwest, west and southwest of the historic Beaverdell Silver Mine (Figure 1). Several of the recently acquired mineral claims exist immediately south of Troubadour Resources Inc.'s Texas
Project mineral claims where they have been actively exploring high grade Ag-Au-Cu-Pb-Zn zones southwest of Beaverdell including the Doorn Zone and the Wombat Zone (Figures 1 and 2).

The Beaverdell mineral claims cover a number of historical polymetallic showings and based upon a compilation of historical assessment data, a number of rock and soil anomalies with highly anomalous Ag, Au, Zn, Pb and Cu (Figure 2).
In addition to the various Ag-Au-Zn-Pb anomalies there are a number of Cu +/- Mo anomalies in the southern half of the claim block, in particular the Tuzo Creek Molybdenite showing with accompanying sphalerite, galena and chalcopyrite in an altered, partially brecciated and quartz veined Eocene aged quartz-feldspar porphyry. Historical drilling results at the Tuzo Creek showing have yielded up to 0.28% MoS2 (0.17% Mo) over 3.05 m and 0.16% MoS2 (0.1% Mo) over 15.24 m core length in limited drilling.
Compilation of historical soil samples collected from mostly on or near the Company's lands include approximately 7,020 soil samples with 437 samples yielding a range of 1 part per million (ppm) Ag up to 15.1 ppm Ag, a total of 111 soil samples yielding a range of 100 parts per billion (ppb) Au up to 1,090 ppb Au, a total of 420 soil samples yielding a range of 500 ppm Zn up to 6,400 ppm Zn and a total of 55 soil samples yielding a range of 200 ppm Cu up to 1,850 ppm Cu (Figure 2).
Compilation of historical rock samples collected from mostly on or near the Company's lands include approximately 365 samples with 79 rock samples yielding a range of 10 ppm Ag up to 6,257 ppm Ag, a total of 54 rock samples yielding a range of 1 ppm Au up to 78.73 ppm Au, a total of 92 rock samples yielding a range of 1,000 ppm Zn up to 316,000 ppm (31.6%) Zn and a total of 26 rock samples yielding a range of 1,000 ppm Cu up to 70,000 ppm (7.0%) Cu (Figure 2).
The Company plans to conduct reconnaissance exploration, including prospecting, rock and soil sampling along with geological mapping at the acquired mineral claims during the coming field season.
