This is another newly discovered zone about 650 meters to the east of the Scadding Mine Site. This zone contains localized areas of massive pyrite with minor chlorite and has some similarities to the mineralization styles observed in the East-West Pit. It was initially discovered in May 2010 during mapping of the Scadding Mine Site. Three grab samples were taken from the area and one sample returned an anomalous value of 0.805g/t Au (E5105585). On surface many of the sulphides had been weathered out, channel sampling would allow us to penetrate deeper into the rock. In the fall of 2010, the Secret Showing was stripped, mapped and channel sampled. The map produced (as seen below) suggests potential fold nose mineralization.
Several samples taken during channel sampling again produced weakly anomalous assay values as shown in the table below. This suggests that the weathered surface may be too thick to be penetrated with a saw blade (deeper than 3 inches). Follow up in this area with deeper methods is planned for this summer in attempt to assay below the weathered surface.
