Comment The purpose of this program was to evaluate the anomalies for gold and base metal potential. 3,405 line km of airborne EM and magnetics was completed to identify 44 anomalies which were studied in more detail. There were 6 lake sediment samples, 32 rock samples and 81 soil samples collected and analysed.

Activity Geophysics, Airborne
Comment This airborne geophysical survey was flown over the BJ Claims searching for the geophysical signatures typical of kimberlite pipes. The 'bulls eye' magnetic responses associated with kimberlites were not abundant, however the survey did outline 44 EM anomalies with or without coincident magnetic association. These anomalies were evaluated - primarily for gold and base metals.
