  • Athelstan-Jackpot (A-J): 2 former gold mines.
  • 2,000m drilling to target new lode-gold deposit target in North Zone. Targeting multi-coincident geophysical anomaly on strike with neighboring gold trend and gold mines.  Drilling to start 2nd week of August
  • Crackingstone Uranium-REE: Some of the highest grade Rare Earth Elements (REE’s) are being discovered in Northern Saskatchewan due to the presence of Uranium, Thorium & Pegmati Crackingstone project meets the criteria for potentially discovering a large REE’s deposit with its high grade uranium along with thorium and pegmatite. A review of 3,000m of 2008 drill data shows a 1.3km pegmatite dyke drilled but only assayed for uranium at that time. 2023 plans are to re-assay pegmatite sections for REE’s ;
  • Come By Chance (CBC): 2021 geophysics delineated potential large copper-gold porphyry;
    2022 drilling provided further vectors towards potential core of porphyry;
  • The Crackingstone uranium/REE project in the uranium/REE Beaverlodge district of northern Saskatchewan.
  • The Lone Star Copper-Gold: optioned to Australian Marquee Resources ASX:MQR; MQR has spent $2.5M in drilling, completed new resource in Dec. 2022  and is currently producing a Preliminary Economic Assessment in order to earn 80% interest
  • The Kibby Basin Lithium project located 60 kilometers north of the lithium rich Clayton Valley Basin: Optioned 80% of the central Kibby Playa claim block to Australian Marquee Resources MQR. MQR has spent $3.0M in drilling in 2022 for potential deep seated lithium brine. 2022 Drilling confirmed high levels of lithium-bearing sediments along with dissolved lithium in the groundwater. Mineralized intervals containing up to 924 ppm lithium with greater than 300 ppm lithium over thicknesses in excess of 450m have been identified in core samples of clay-rich playa sediments.
