Technical report 34442 - (1988) describes the northern Quesnel Highlands as underlain by four geological terranes, three of which are fault bounded. The terranes are defined by their unique stratigraphic successions. The easternmost is the Cariboo Terrane consisting of sedimentary rocks in fault contact with the western margin of the Precambrian North American Craton along the Rocky Mountain Trench. The Barkerville Terrane consists of mostly sedimentary rocks and is west of, and in fault contact with, the Cariboo Terrane. The Barkerville and Cariboo Terranes are overthrust by the Slide Mountain Terrane which is composed of basic volcanics and intrusives as well as generally fine grained clastic rocks. The root zone of the Slide Mountain Terrane is considered to be serpentinite and sheared mafic rocks that exist locally at the western boundary of the Barkerville Terrane. West of that root zone is the Quesnel Terrane composed of volcanic, volcaniclastic and fine grained clastic rocks.
Technical report 34442 - 1983 B.Mickle staked NOR1-4 mineral claims totaling 2000 hectares, located anomalous gold in silts near the southern headwaters of Porter Creek and subsequently optioned the ground to Sheen Minerals Inc. 1984 Gold in shear zones on NOR1-4 were noted by Sheen Minerals geologist, Cardinal, and further reconnaissance prospecting across the property was conducted. The gold in silts reported in 1983 could not be duplicated (Assessment Report 13372) 6 1984 Mickle staked MAR4-6 mineral claims (1500ha) immediately southeast of the NOR property and Cardinal recorded prospecting work. Report duplicate of report 13372 with direct dates and same map but is on the adjacent ground (Assessment Report 14529) 1996 The first set of Miller’s claims are staked and named the AMP group. 2000 More staking conducted by Miller this year. This set is called the ASP. 2001-2002 Miller stakes 10 additional units on the ASP group in 2001 and further explores his ground. His assay results and sample sites are published in Assessment report 31239. 2004 Miller stakes 2 final units on the ASP group which now adds up to 31 units. 2005-2006 Neighboring ‘North Mineral Star Exploration Company Inc’ conducted field work, sampling and detailed testing of their rocks. Gemologists confirm the primary target area on tenure 520531 hosts nephrite jade. The serpentinite was investigated as an industrial mineral and for use as dimension stone. (Assessment report 28819) 2009 Gruenwald conducted a geochemical survey of the Miller Property including 1.85Lkm of soil sampling (Assessment report 31239) 2010 Miller contracted Tenorex GeoServices to conduct a geochemical survey adjacent the 2009 survey. 103 samples were taken over a distance 2.24 line kilometer
