The property was staked to cover three different targets.
The first target, called Lottie, has massive sulphide boulders of volcanogenic massive sulphide origin. The source of this mineralization could very likely be close and under a layer of overburden. In 2000 Hudson Bay Exploration and Development explored this area following a field inspection in September 1999 of the area where a prospector had discovered a mineralized angular boulder which assayed 24.3% copper and 19.6 grams per tonne silver (west of Lottie Lake). Numerous trenches exposed ferricrete suggesting proximity to a sulfide rich source. The Hudson Bay Exploration and Development report stated that trench samplesincluded five samples ranging between 4.6% and 10.4% copper, 8 to 12 g/t silver and trace gold, lead and zinc. A separate massive pyrite sample returned 0.13% cobalt.
The second target, called Golden Sky was discovered near a recent logging road by crew who were conducting reconnaissance exploration. This target is located to the west and outside the area explored by Hudson Bay Exploration and Development. A gossan was noticed on a road cut and when examined determined to be rusty rhyolite cut by narrow quartz veins. The initial grab sample returned an analysis of 1.51 g/t gold along with 1204 ppm As, 1313 ppm Sb, 1.01% Zn and 0.48% Pb. Subsequent further sampling returned comparable results and suggested a shear zone trending at 070º.
The third target, called Khan-Khan, also covers part of a large land package that was explored by Hudson Bay Exploration and Development. The target deposit type at Khan Khan is either a massive sulfide of the Cyprus type or alternately a structurally focussed precious metal vein deposit similar to gold occurrences closer to Barkerville. To quote the Hudson's Bay Exploration and Development Company summary report of 2001 "Angular mineralized boulders were found along the road cut at the Khan till anomaly...Boulders are described as being a gossanous dark grey mafic intrusive (subvolcanic), possibly slightly sheared, contained up to 5% chalcopyrite, 1% pyrrhotite, and trace bornite. Assays returned values of 0.40% to 0.56% Cu, with low Ag, Ni and Co credits. Rusty basalt boulders outcropping in the immediate area contained disseminated trace bornite, chalcopyrite and pyrrhotite, but failed to yield significant assay results" An active placer gold mine exists approximately one kilometer east of the Khan Khan claim.
The Hedgehog project is under option to West Oak Gold Corp. who may earn a 60% interest by paying $377,500 (cash and/ or shares) and incurring $1.75 million in exploration over a four year term.
