Comment Exploration of the TW property in 2005 consisted of collecting 76 till samples for indicator mineral analyses. As well, a contractor was hired to prospect and sample gold showings known in the area as well a number of FalconTM geophysical anomalies from an airborne survey completed in 2003. REsults from the till sampling are included in an addendum to the report. Chromite and chrome diopside grains were considered not conclusive but the lack of any peridotitic and eclogitic garnets suggested that kimberlites were probably not present in the area. Gold prospecting and anomaly ground truthing is written up in a separate report. It was concluded that a majority of the showings were high grade but very narrow mining widths and not economically attractive. The volcanic rocks in the regions were the preferred host rock type for gold showings but much of the volcanic belt is already staked. One anomaly in volcanic rocks was ground truthed and indicated weak sulphide mineralization. The TW claims adjacent to the Ormsby Zone may be worth keeping in good standing, in case the zone is proven to extend south on to the TW claims.

Activities
Activity Sampling
Comment Seventy-six till samples were collected along lines roughly perpendicular to the interpreted ice flow direction. Samples consisted of 15-20 kg of glacial till hand dug in pits to 70 cm in depth. Frost boils were prefered sample material. Samples were sent to Vancouver Indicator Processors where they were weighed, disaggregated, wet screened and partitioned into various fractions. The -0.86+0.25 fraction underwent magnetic separation and further heavy liquid processing. The heavy concentrates were sent to KIM Dynamics for grain analysis. The results are included in an addendum to the report. Grabs and chips of rock samples were collected on several known gold showings in the area, as well as on one FalconTM geophysical anomaly (from a 2003 airborne survey). This work was carried out by a contractor. Samples were assayed for copper, zinc, lead, gold and silver and results are available in the report.
