Pistol Bay $PST has optioned two additional claim groups in the Confederation Lake greenstone belt, Ontario which brings their land position in this belt to approximately 9,450 ha over a 53 km length of favourable volcanic geology.
The two claim groups are called Lucky 7 and Moth groups. The Lucky 7 covers a number of mineralized zones which adjoin the Garnet Lake and Garnet East claim groups. A copper-gold sulphide zone, which apparently grades into a siliceous gold zone at its eastern end, was stripped and drill tested in 2002 by Kings Bay Gold Corp. A zone of massive to disseminated sulphides has been trenched but apparently never drilled.
The Moth group of 10 claims comprises 85 units over 1,360 ha and covers a 5.5 km length of favourable geology and its north boundary is only 2 km from former producing South Bay mine.The area was extensively explored between 1970 and the mid 1990s, with at least 14 diamond drill holes. Widespread hydrothermal alteration was noted and there were numerous indications of zinc and/or copper mineralization.
