Work in 2016 also included surface and underground mapping, surveying and sampling. Highlights include an underground channel sample returning 4.5 grams per tonne gold over 25.5 metres in the Idaho Zone, and surface samples returning 7.45 grams per tonne gold over 4.5 metres and 4.08 grams per tonne gold over nine metres in the McMaster Zone. New Carolin consolidated its land position in the Coquihalla Gold Belt and now has a 100 per cent interest in the property. Bear Mountain Gold Mines Ltd. is working toward permitting of an underground bulk sample at Harrison Gold. Great Thunder Gold Corp.'s 2016 program included mapping, hand trenching and lithogeochemistry at the Valentine Mountain gold project. Porphyry (copper-gold, copper- molybdenum) projects Northisle Copper and Gold Inc. is proceeding with a PEA of its North Island project. In 2015, Northisle added the Red Dog property to its holdings. New diamond drilling will upgrade historical resources to a compliant estimate. A 1992 estimate had 20 to 25 million tonnes grading 0.35 per cent copper and 0.44 grams per tonne gold. Initial drill results in twinned holes are consistent with historical results. The deposit is about 7.5 kilometres west-northwest of Hushamu, which has an indicated resource of 304 million tonnes grading 0.21 per cent copper, 0.29 grams per tonne gold, 0.01 per cent molybdenum and 0.55 parts SOUTHWEST (SOUTH COAST AND WEST COAST) REGION Drill core from the Idaho Zone at New Carolin Gold Corp.'s Ladner Gold project.
