The claims are readily The property is located in the central west portion of Teck west of Kirkland Lake by travelling a accessible from Highway 66 at Chaput-Hughes, one mile bush road and one and one-half miles to black-topped road one quarter of a mile and a gravel-based ic power is available from Ontario Power another bush road which crosses several of the claims. Electr land Railroad passes within a half mile of lines about one mile east of the property. The Ontario North i Creek which crosses the property. the property and water is available all year from Amikougam ntal as well as vertical, is found in all Only Precambrian rocks are found in this area. Faulting, horizo est preference, and with secondary parts of the area, striking in all directions but with an east-w with overburden. The rocks exposed on north-south faults. More than 907o of the property is covered diorites and gabbro. the claims are chiefly Algoman syenite and porphyry and basic found in association with the gold The rock formations found on the property are similar to those area. A preliminary magnetic survey and occurrences of the producing mines in the Kirkland Lake st, 1971 by Mr. Burton and a number V.L.F. electro-magnetic survey were carried out on the 5th Augu d indicating that geophysical survey of of magnetic and V.L.F. electro-magnetic anomalies are locate be shear and fault zones. the claims is justified to locate conductive anomalies that may numbered L 317175 to L 317185 be Mr. Burton recommends that the block of eleven claims and a sensitive magnetometer. He further examined by means of an electro-magnetic V.L.F. receiver,
mmends approximately 10 miles of line cutting followed by a program of 2,000 feet of diamond ing. The estimated cost of the total program is 519,000.00, of which 53,000.00 is for the line cutting and geological survey, and 516,000.00 is for the diamond drilling, if such is warranted after the interpretation of the geophysical and electromagnetic survey. The Company's property is without a known body of commercial ore and the proposed program is an exploratory search for ore. There is no surface or underground plant or equipment on the claims and no work has been done on them by the present management of the Company. 200 days' assessment work must be recorded for each claim during the next five years before 25th May, 1976. After 3,200 days of assessment work are recorded a renewable lease may be obtained from the Department of Mines covering the claims.

this fault system may be along an older line of weakness that could affeet mineral deposition. By modern concepts of mining exploration these claJje* are praotloally unexplored. Only rook outcrops were examined. Hore than 9Q5S of the property is covered with overburden. The depressions between the outcrops should be prospected by geo physical methods as the first step in the exploration of this property. Formations and Structure The gold ore bodies have a closer relationship to structure than to rock types.
In other verde a structural con
dition such as faulting, fracturing, shearing and brecciation is considered to be a nore favorable location for carbonatization and gold veins than any particular rock type. Favorable host rocks such as syenite and syenite prophyry were early considered to be the place to explore. Hew we know that ore conditions may develop In any rock type, with the exception of formations developed since Algoman time.

Secondary Minerals are sericite,

It occurs in the tellurides, in calaverite (AuTOg)

REPORT ON THE VLF AND THE MAGNETIC GEOPHYSICAL SURVEYS ON THE PROPERTY OF TECKORA MINES LIMITED TECK TOWNSHIP, ONTARIO
DIGEST The geophysical VLF and magnetic surveys completed in November and December, 1971, has recorded several anomalous con ditions that are interpreted as east-west conductive fractured or mineralized zones with some north-south cross-faulting evident.
Geological considerations encourage the hope of
finding gold or base metals in these zones. A north-south anomaly is recorded at the Amikougami Creek on the property.
Where east-west and north-south anomalous
zones intersect may be a favorable loci for economic concentrations of minerals.
A northerly-southerly fault zone is indicated between
O and W0800.
Six exploratory drill holes are recommended to test these zones for economic minerals.

REPORT ON THE VLF AND THE MAGNETIC GEOPHYSICAL SURVEYS ON THE PROPERTY OF TECKORA MINES LIMITED TECK TOWNSHIP, ONTARIO
INTRODUCTION After an inspection of the Teck Township property it was obvious that the property has some mineralogical and geological possibilities for ore deposition, and that a geo physical survey was the next step in the exploration. Accordingly, Mr. T. D. Brown of North Cobalt con tracted to cut the lines to guide the geophysical examinations. He did an excellent job of line cutting;
the lines were well
cut out, and the marking pickets were conspicuous and firmly planted in the ground.
He turned in a map dated December 2nd,
1971 showing the picket lines and other information regarding the topography and the mining claims. The geophysical surveys were carried out during November and December, 1971.
The topography is fairly level.
The timber is all
second-growth poplar, birch and pine with the usual dense growth of low-growing brush. The weather during the line-cutting and the geophysical surveys was usual for this time of year;
mostly snow and rain.

In this report there is some repetition of back ground information from my reports "Preliminary Exploration Report on the Property of Teckora Mines Limited, Teck Township, Ontario, August, 1971" and also my "Supplementary Report on the Reconnaissance VLF and Magnetic Geophysical Surveys on the Property of Teckora Mines limited, Teck Township, Ontario, October, 1971'*.
This repetition is necessary so that this
report is complete in itself without reference to some other report not immediately available. Property Description, Area and Topography Sixteen cla.in[g comprise this contiguous group of claims numbered ^17175 to 317190.
The area is about 640 acres.
They are located in the west central portion of jjsfo Township. The Mining Recorder's office in Kirkland Lake shows that the claims were recorded by Charles Thibodeau, Miner 1 s Licence K17690, on May 25th, 1971.
These claims were trans
ferred to Teckora^M^Te^IjyiELigdjtf^Aueust 30th, 1971* under Miner's Licence T452. For the first year to Mav 25th. 1972. twenty davs assessment work must be recorded on each claim.
days assessment work must be recorded on each claim during the next five years before May 25th, 1976 in order to obtain a re newable lease on these claims. The topograph is fairly level with many rock outcrops.

Second growth poplar, birch and pine grow on this property with thick low-growing brush. Ac9essibilityj Local Resources and Climate The property is readily accessible from Highway 66 at Chaput-Hughes, one mile west of Kirkland Lake.
topped road one quarter mile to the northwest to the Macassa Mine turns into a rough east-west gravel-based bush road that crosses the Amikougami Creek one and one-half miles from Chaput-Hughes.
A north-south bush road starting 800 feet west
of the Amikougami Creek bridge crossed several claims on the property at a distance of one-half mile north.
drilling equipment will be relatively easy after some minor road preparation.
Small swamp areas will have to be by-passed.
The Ontario Northland Railroad from Noranda to Swastika passes within a half mile of the property to the southeast.
road crossing on this railroad was dug out and a barrier located so that trucks could not cross.
Small vehicles may cross the
track with difficulty. Electric power is available from Ontario Hydro lines about one mile east of the property. Water is available all year from Amikougami Creek which crosses the property. The climate is typical of Northern Ontario with snow cover through December to April, with temperatures that may be as cold as minus 60 0F. for a few days, usually in February.

THE GEOLOGY Geophysical Correlation with the Geology Geophysical measurements act as a guide to indicate geological conductive conditions at depth, in an area considered to be geologically favorable for the deposition of ore minerals. Geophysical results must be prepared and mapped in such a way that they may be translated into geological terms and poss ibilities in order to be of assistance in the exploration and the testing of a mining property. Some geological knowledge must be available in order to derive the maximum benefit from a geophysical examination. Governmental Maps and Reports There are many geological reports on the Kirkland Lake area.
The most recent and comprehensive governmental reports and
maps are "Fifty-seventh Annual Report, Ontario Department of Mines, Volume LVII, Part 5, 1948", and, Ontario Department of Mines Mineral Resources Circular No, 3, "Mineral Resources and Mining Properties in the Kirkland Lake-Larder Lake Area" by W. S. Savage. Regional Geology Apparently structural control is more important than the rock formations for the development of ore bodies in this area. Precambrian rocks only are found in this local area.

faults have most of their movement more recently than Algoman time.
However, they may have originally developed before or
during the emplacement of the Algoman intrusives, and in this case they may indicate zones of carbonatization and channelways for ore solutions. Local Geology On the sixteen claims comprising the Teckora group the rocks exposed are chiefly Algoman syenite and porphyry, and basic

The older Keewatin lavas also outcrop.
These formations are about one mile north of the generally east-west Main Kirkland Lake fault system which passes through the seven producing mines of the camp. The Algoman intrusives in the south part of the claim group are similar to those in the gold-producing part of the Kirkland Lake camp.
The association of basic rocks and older
lavas may be the loci for base metal deposits. Many old trenches, some exposing quartz veins, are found on this property. One old drill hole making water is directed north under an east-west creek depression on claim 317182.
about the results of this drilling is available. The Amikougami Creek fault system is a north-south depression that could have a significant effect on mineral depos ition.
Obviously the major movement of this fault system is more

Only rock outcrops were examined.
More than 90^ of the property is covered with overburden.

Formations and Structure
The gold ore bodies have a closer relationship to structure than to rock types.
In other words, a structural
condition such as faulting, fracturing, shearing and breccia tion is considered to be a more favorable location for carbon atization and gold veins than any particular rock type. Favorable host rocks such as syenite and syenite porphyry were early considered to be the place to explore. Now we know that ore conditions may develop in any rock type, with the exception of formations developed since Algoman time. Gold Veins Gold deposits are found in fissure and quartz veins, quartz stock work deposits, in carbonate zones, quartz-sulphide deposits in lavas and tuffs, sulphide deposits and in talcchlorite schists, and in mineralized dikes. Quartz is the principal gangue mineral.
Secondary minerals are sericite,
carbonates, chlorite and pyrite. It appears that gold was the last to be deposited. It is found native in the vein minerals, and fractures, and with pyrite.
It occurs in the tellurides, calaverite (AuTe2) and
Silver is also found.
Other minerals are
chalcopyrite, hematite, galena, sphalerite, molybdenite, graphite, and the tellurides altaite (PbTe) coloradoite (HgTe) and melonite (Ni2Te3 ).

Economic Geological Considerations We hope for gold veins and base metal deposits.
this property the formations are similar to those found in assoc iation with the gold occurrences in the nearby producing mines. Base metal deposits are found associated with the rock types found on this property. Favorable structural conditions appear to be the allimportant factors, with faulting, shearing, schisting and breccia tion as the controlling conditions. A geological examination of the rocks outcropping on this property will be helpful in evaluating the geophysical con ductive and magnetic anomalies that are found on this property. Follow-up drilling will then determine the economic value of the anomalous zones.

THE GEOPHYSICAL SURVEYS The Geophysical Methods Used Two geophysical methods are used for this examination. The Very Low Frequency (VLF) method, made possible by the development of the Ronka EML6 receiver, is used to locate zones of relatively higher conductivity, usually caused by shearing, faulting, schisting, fracturing or brecciation and conductive sulphides in the bedrock. Accurate recordings of the intensity of the earth's magnetic field at the surface when suitably plotted will in dicate the relative distribution of the magnetic minerals in the underlying bedrock. A comparison of the results of the two methods may assist in the interpretation of the geophysical data into geo logical possibilities for mineral concentration. The VLF Method and Procedure for Geophysical Prospecting The VLF Transmitters Very Low Frequency (VLF) transmitters (15 to 25 kHz) are located all over the world.
These transmitters originate

VLF radiation has considerable penetration
DOUGLAS BURTON. P. ENO GEOPHYSICAL SURVEYS COBALT.
The radiation is vertically polarized and propagates radially in straight lines concentrically from the transmitter, The radiation is characterized by low path attenuation which is relatively stable with time. Changes in the usual propagation pattern of VLF radia tion are introduced by such factors as land-sea boundaries, topo graphic surface elevation differences, and changes in the ground characteristics.
Good conductors in the earth, such as sulphides
and graphite zones, and shears and faults of some considerable dimension, will have a tendency to concentrate and locally dis tort VLF radiation.
Artificial conductors such as pipe lines,
fences, electric lines and railroad tracks distort these fields, VLF transmissions are most strongly concentrated by electrically conductive zones with a strike or longitudinal dimension along the radial path of propagation from each trans mitter.
Where the strike of the conductive zones is not known
it is advisable to record the results from two VLF transmitters whose azimuth direction from the area of survey is about 90* apart.
In this case the radiation from the transmitters at
Balboa, C. Z,, and Jim Creek, Washington were used.
azimuth direction is about 180 C and 285 0 , respectively, The VLF Receiver The Ronka EM16 receiver for VLF radiation has two directional antenna at right angles.
By means of earphones and

null direction reception the azimuth to the transmitting station is determined, and also, the dip of the field at right angles to this direction, and the phase difference, from point to point in the area to be tested.
These parameters may be determined from
two transmitting stations, with the Ronka receiver. Readings are usually taken at 100 foot intervals along profile lines crossing the general geological strike of the area examined.
Conductive 2Dnes are indicated by anomalous dips of
the field in the vicinity, with a vertical orientation directly over a conductive zone. When the dips are recorded and placed on a map, the conductive zones may be traced and the dip of these zones may be indicated also.
For conductive zones parallel to the
profile lines a careful examination of the results is necessary to determine the location of the axis. The Magnetic Survey The magnetic recordings are made by means of an accurate Sharpe MF-1 flux-gate magnetometer adjusted to a sensitivity of twenty gammas per scale division. The magnetic component at any point on the surface will usually differ from the average value for the region. intensities are caused by magnetic minerals below.
susceptibility of rocks is generally accounted for by the contained magnetite although other magnetic minerals such as pyrrhotite may contribute to the observed intensity.

Dikes and faults
The depth to the upper magnetic pole may
be estimated under favorable conditions where large tabular magnetic deposits occur. Zones of stronger magnetic intensity indicate concentrations of magnetite and pyrrhotite.
These minerals often accompany valuable
non-magnetic mineral concentrations.
On the other hand a lower
magnetic intensity may signify important zones of alteration where magnetite is changed to non-magnetic minerals.

THE RESULTS OF THE GEOPHYSICAL SURVEYS The Maps (numbered 71-79-1, -2 and -3) Accompanying this report are three maps drawn on a scale of one inch equals 250 feet (scale ratio. 1:3000).
maps show the results of the VLF survey field work (Jim Creek and Balboa), and the magnetic survey. On all of these maps the picketed and taped northsouth lines are shown with their related east-west base- and tie-lines.
These are traced from a map dated December 2nd,
1971 by T. D. Brown who carried out the line-cutting contract. The Amikougami Creek is shown.
The Mining Claims are also
numbered on these maps. A Location Jfep, traced from the Township Claim Map, scale one inch equals 1320 feet, shows the sixteen contiguous mining claims.
It is shown in a box in a corner of the larger
map. The geophysical anomalies are shown on each of these maps, and also the drill locations chosen for further examination and testing. The dip of the VLF field together with a quadrature phase difference is plotted as a percentage using the picketed survey lines as a zero base.
These are distinctively colored
in red and blue for identification and correlation.
- 15 -
DOUGLAS BURTON. P. ENG GEOPHYSICAL SURVEYS COBALT.
The relative magnetic field intensity is shown in gammas at 50 foot intervals on the picketed profile lines. Lines of equal intensity are shown.
Areas with intensities
more than 8500 gammas are shaded with blue color, and areas with a magnetic intensity less than 7800 gammas are colored red. The Results of the VLF Surveys (Maps 71-79-1 and -2) 10.5 miles of profile were examined by means of VLF observations at 100 foot intervals.
At each observation point
the VLF parameters from the radiation from the Jim Creek trans mitter to the west in the State of Washington were recorded. At the same time, VLF readings from the radiation from the Balboa VLF transmitter to the south in the Panama Canal Zone were taken. Two east-west zones of VLF anomalies indicating con ducting conditions are traced on the western portion of the property.
These zones should be tested for economic concentra
tions of minerals. In the vicinity of Amikougami Creek a north-south zone of conductivity is indicated by VLF anomalies.
This zone should
be tested by drilling. Maps numbered 71-79-1 and -2 show the results of the VLF field work, and also the location for the drilling recommended to test the zones located.

GEOPHYSICAL SURVEYS COBALT.
The Results of the Magnetic Survey (Map 71-79-3) The earth's magnetic field is measured at 50 foot intervals on the lines on the property.
The magnetic intensity
varies from a low of 52,125 gammas, to a high of 63,870 gammas, with an average intensity of about 58,000 gammas. The magnetic variations do not appear to be related to the VLF anomalies, but they de show evidence of north-south fault ing and movement. 10.5 miles of profile line are examined by means of a magnetic survey. Drilling Recommendations A number of geophysical anomalies indicating conductive zones should be tested for economic concentrations of gold or base metals.

CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS The property is well located with respect to geo logical and structural conditions favorable for mineral con centrations, and the geophysical surveys show anomalous con ditions that are interpreted to indicate sheared and mineral ized zones. It is recommended that these zones be tested for economic deposits of minerals, gold and base metals, by drilling. On the accompanying maps the sections recommended to be tested by drilling are shown.
About 2000 feet of drilling should
test the zones geophysically indicated.
Further drill holes to
check the results obtained may be laid out by reference to the anomalous zones indicated on the maps. After the drilling is completed a decision may be made about further exploratory work on this prpperty. In the meantime, this report is, Respectfully s

In order to simplify the filing of geological, geochemical and ground geophysical surveys for assessment work, the Minister has approved the following procedure under Section 84 (8a) of the Ontario Mining Act. This special provision does not apply to airborne geophysical surveys. . . , If, in the opinion of the Minister, a ground geophysical survey meets the requirements prescribed for such a survey, including: (a) , (b) ' (c)' (d)
t * ' ' '
substantial and systematic coverage of each claim line spacing not exceeding 400 foot intervals stations not exceeding 100 foot intervals or the average number of readings per claim not less than 40 readings
it will qualify for a credit of 40 assessment work days for each claim so covered. It will not be necessary for the applicant to furnish any data or breakdown concerning the persons employed in the survey except for the names and addresses of those in charge of the various phases (linecutting contractor, etc.). It .will be assumed that the required number of man days were spent in producing the survey to qualify for the specified credit. . . . ' ' -- , - ; ' V **"- : Each additional ground geophysical survey using the same grid system-and otherwise meeting these requirements will qualify for an assessment work credit of 20 days. A geological survey using the same grid system, and meeting the requirements for submission of geological surveys for maximum credits will qualify for an assessment work credit of 20 days. If line cutting has not previously been reported with any other survey and is reported in conjunction with the geological survey a credit of 40 days per claim will be allowed for the survey. Similarly, a geochemical survey using the same grid system with the average number of collected samples per claim being not less than 40 samples, and meeting the requirements for the submission of geochemical surveys for maximum credits, will qualify for an assessment work credit of 20 days. If line cutting has not previously been reported with any other survey and is reported in conjunction with the geochemical survey a credit of 40 days per claim will be allowed for the survey. Cjredits for partial coverage or for surveys not meeting requirements for ful| credit will be granted on a pro-rata basis. If the credits are reduced for any reason, a fifteen day Notice of Intent will be issued. During this period, the applicant may apply to the Mining Commissioner for relief if his claims are jeopardized for lack of work or, if he wishes, may file with the Department, normal assessment work breakdowns listing the names of the employees and the dates of work. The survey would then be re-assessed to determine if higher credits may be allowed under the provisions of subsections 8 and 9 of section 84 of the Mining Act. If new breakdowns are not submitted, the Performance and Coverage credits are confirmed to the Mining Recorder at the end of the fifteen days.
