A total of 50 line kilometres of grid were cut with a line spacing of 50 metres. Horizontal loop and magnetometer surveys were carried out over 46 kilometres of cross lines in February 2007. A program of reverse circulation overburden drilling was carried out in February 2007. Overburden ranged from 29 to 47.7 metres in thickness.
Diamond drilling was carried out to test conductive geophysical responses and interpreted structures in the area up ice from sites with elevated pristine gold grain counts from the overburden drilling. A total of 2056 metres of BQ diamond drilling in 8 drill holes were completed on the properties between August 29th and September 23, 2007. All core has been sampled and analyzed. Core containing sulfide mineralization, alteration or veining was cut in half with one half sent for analysis. Indications of structure were encountered in all holes. Bedded sulfides (barren) and graphite were encountered in 3 of the 6 holes testing conductive features associated with structures on the property.
The stratigraphy and structures hosting gold mineralization on the nearby Rainy River Resources property are believed to dip to the southwest. These structures could occur at an unknown depth on the property and were not targeted during the recent drill program. Anomalous gold values from 50ppb to 300ppb Au over significant widths were encountered in drill holes R7D-1, R7D-2, and R7D-5.
The Phase 1 drill program was intended to test conductive geophysical responses and interpreted structures in the area up ice from sites with elevated pristine gold grain counts from the overburden drilling. Skyharbour Resources will compile and evaluate all data from the properties and adjoining area to determine future work programs.
