The Cowtrail (DDH-01) showing is located approximately 600 metres west of the BM (093A 116) showing, and is part of the Cowtrail property.

The oldest rocks on the property belong to the Upper Triassic-Lower Jurassic Nicola Group and consist of a submarine sequence of augite basalt flows and wackes that are overlain by massive felsic tuff breccias (probably volcanic equivalents of crosscutting alkalic intrusions), which in turn are overlain by a dark grey siltstone. The youngest units are maroon-coloured analcite-bearing basalt flows and breccias of probable subaqueous origin. At least three intrusive centres are known to exist on the claims including the ‘Middle Lake alkalic entity’, the ‘Hooker Lake syenodiorite’ and the carbonate altered ‘BM’ felsic unit. Two of the known intrusive centres, the Middle Lake entity and the Hooker Lake syenodiorite, may be coeval with the younger volcanic lithologies and are probably subvolcanic in origin. They occur as virtual windows in a till-covered terrain and may coalesce under this cover.

Drillholes at DDH-01 have observed mineralization in potassium-altered micro-diorite in contact with a pyritic metavolcanic unit, and a dark-green to grey aphanitic basalt, with moderate to intense alteration to chlorite, epidote, calcite and pyrite as well as silicic and potassic alteration. Pyrite occurs in blebs and stringers and is disseminated throughout the basalt.

In 2006, Dajin Resources Corp. established approximately 20 kilometres of cut grid line and completed induced polarization and magnetometer surveys on this grid.

In 2007, Dajin Resources Corp. completed a drill program on seven of the ten identified IP anomalies from 2006. Highlights of this program include drillhole DDH-01, which assayed 1.16 grams per tonne gold and 0.043 per cent copper over 18.3 metres (Assessment Report 30539).

In 2011, Dajin Resources Corp. conducted a seven-hole drill program on the Cowtrail property. Highlights of this program include drillhole 2011-12, which assayed 0.11 gram per tonne gold and 0.2 per cent copper over 38 metres (Press Release, Dajin Resources Corp., March 5, 2012).
