Comment Precious metals exploration as well as uranium, copper and nickel/cobalt exploration included geological mapping, prospecting and geochemical sampling (911 rock samples in total). There were no showings found in NTS area 75L/2, nor 75L/3. In NTS area 75L/4 on Opener Island, 95 samples were assayed for gold and silver. Eleven samples were highly anomalous. One chip sample taken over a 1.4 metre width assayed 460 ppb gold and 430 oz silver per ton. This sample also registered 38,000 cps radioactivity. In NTS area 75L/6 thirty-nine chip samples were taken from two sets of trenches. One of these samples assayed 0.052 ounces gold per ton; another assayed 900 ppb palladium. In 75L/7 the RADON gold showing and PONO 5 silver showing were found and a couple of gold showings were located on the HOPE 1 claim northwest of Lac Duhamel. In NTS area 75L/8 assays up to 970 ppb gold were attained from samples taken from historic trenches. The Luke claims were staked on Wilson Island in NTS area 85H/15 to cover showings previously found by Vestor Explorations. One sample from zone 5 (claim Luke 5) assayed 0.029 ounces gold per ton over 1.2 metres.
