Capsule Geology

The Bet showing is located on Crowfoot Mountain, approximately 8 kilometres north of Shuswap Lake.

The property is underlain by Devonian age chloritic schists and minor limestone, that are probably equivalent to the Eagle Bay Formation. Foliation in the schist strikes 055 to 085 degrees and dips 42 degrees north. The rocks are intruded by diorite dikes.

Mineralization occurs as replacement of limestone and marble bands. A sample of ore assayed 28 per cent lead, 17 per cent zinc, 2400 grams per tonne silver, and trace gold (Assessment Report 5133).

The area was originally explored from 1927 to 1932 with the construction of several pits, shallow shafts and adits. In the 1960's and early 1970's various companies performed programs of geochemical and geophysical surveys. In 1984 and 1985, the area was explored under the Silver Weasel claims.
