Grab samples returned highs of 5.5, 4.6 and 2.8 g/t Au. Detailed channel sampling identified two anomalous zones within the alteration returning 0.35 g/t Au over 5.0 m and 0.20 g/t Au over 2.0 m (MacDougall, 1990).
Dorset # 1: 0.25 m wide quartz vein with disseminated pyrite, grab samples up to 407.9 g/t Au. Dorset # 2: exposed by trenching for 110 m along strike, two veins up to 1 m wide, western vein is the best mineralized with visible gold, galena, chalcopyrite, sphalerite and bornite; grab samples assays up to 167.0 g/t Au and channel samples assays up to 41.6 g/t Au over 1.5 m. Dorset # 3: quartz vein with minor disseminated pyrite and chalcopyrite, up to 0.8 m wide, and exposed by trenching along a 70 m along strike length; grab samples up to 15.87 g/t Au.
Grab samples returned highs of 13.3, 13.7, 8.3, 2.46, and 5.3 g/t Au. Detailed channel sampling returned highs of 1.6 g/t Au over 1.6m and 1.39 g/t Au over 1.15m (MacDougall, 1990).
Initial grab samples returned highs of 314.0, 40.0, 31.4, 21.2, 19.2, and 14.8 g/t Au. Channel samples across the vein returned 9.5 g/t Au over 0.4 m; 5.7 g/t Au over 0.5m and 1.2 g/t Au over 0.65m. Best combined averages including vein and mineralized wall rock include 5.8 g/t Au over 1.9 m; 3.1 g/t Au over 2.0 m and 2.5 g/t Au over 1.5m (MacDougall, 1990).
Detailed channel sampling across the zone returned a combined assay of 56.0 g/t Au over 2.5 m. Two drill holes (DDH-88-9, 10) tested the Dorset #2 vein south along strike. The vein remains narrow (<0.5m) and returned low Au values up to 2.32 g/t Au over 0.5m.
