Property Size and Position
Spanning across 4096 hectares, the property includes 21 unpatented mining claims and 4 patented claims.
The property is 100% owned by Red Pine Exploration.
The company has paused all exploration on the property.
Historically, the property has shown significant mineralization potential. In 1948, the "Jefferson Deposit" was estimated to contain 91,000 tonnes* at 4.6% Zn and 3.3% Pb over 150 metres.
In 2006, Red Pine discovered the outcrop of a massive sulphide occurrence: the Vencan Zinc Showing. Located three kilometres west of the Jefferson Zinc-Lead deposit, Vencan drilling intercepted 4.22% Zn over 16.85 metres, including 7.27% Zn over 8.5 metres.

A qualified person as defined by NI 43-101 has not done sufficient work to classify the Estimates as current mineral resources or mineral reserves and the Corporation is not treating the Estimates as current mineral resources or mineral reserves.
