South Central British Columbia, Canada

Rainbow Zone

The Rainbow zone is a copper-gold mineralized zone favourably situated 3.5 kilometres southeast from the past producing Afton mill site, along the same structural trend that hosts the previously mined Afton, Pothook, and Ajax ore bodies. The mineralized body has a current strike length of 500 metres, a thickness range of 50-150 metres, and a steep southwest dip that has been traced for up to 500 metres below surface. The geometry of the deposit is roughly tabular with an east-west to east southeast orientation. There is excellent potential for expansion, along strike, down dip and at depth. 

A 3D-IP geophysical survey completed in 2003 demonstrates good correlation with the known mineralization, and extends virtually untested 400 metres northwest of the Rainbow area.
