DESCRIPTION OF DEPOSIT
The Burnt Timber Pit is located within the Waskekwan Property, on the north side of Waban Creek and approximately 300 m west of Shortie Lake. The deposit lies within the hangingwall of the T1 fault, which is a post mineralization fault. The T1 fault strikes east-northeast and dips steeply to the north, running along the Johnson Shear. The Burnt Timber deposit is situated in highly altered, deformed sequence of Waskewan group mafic volcanic and metasedimentary rocks, Massive basalts in the area become carbonized, silicified and develop primarily pyrite mineralizations towards the fault. The majority of the gold mineralization is localized within shear laminated, mylonitic and silicified metasediments, and mafic volcanic rocks, which occurs adjacent to the T1 fault (Richardson; Ostry, 1996).
The metasediments and mafic volcanics that contain the gold mineralizations contain occurrences of 1-5% disseminated and fracture controlled pyrite, minor galena, chalcopyrite, and sphalerite. Three different types of gold occurrences have been documented in the Burnt Timber Deposit (Richardson, Ostry, 1996):
1.) The main gold mineralizations are situated in the hangingwall, 40 m or less from the T1 fault. These zones are well fractured or brecciated and form elongated north-dipping lenses. The gold occurrences also contain abundant chlorite, carbonate, and pyrite.
2.) High grade, galena-bearing quartz veins containing foliation-parallel pyrite occur primarily in the eastern end of the deposit, but can occur throughout as well.
3.) High grade, narrow, foliation parallel, intensely silicified, laminated shear zones, occur up to 3m wide in to the hangingwall. The shear zones can locally contain up to 200grams/tonnne (g/t) gold (Au).
The footwall, on the south side of the fault, consists of gabbro, variably altered basalts, metasediments or metavolcanic tuff (Richardson, Ostry, 1996).
The Reserve was defined, in 1988 by Lynngold, to have 997 000 t (1.1 million tons) grading 3.8 g/t (0.111 oz/ton) and has been delineated to a depth of 122 m (400 ft.) Additionally, a zone of lower grade envelopes the deposit consisting of 1.9 million t (2 146 941 tons) grading 12 g/t (0.034 oz/ton) Au (Lynngold Resources Press Release, October 19, 1988).

HISTORY OF EXPLORATION AND DEVELOPMENT
The Burnt Timber (BT) property was discovered in 1988, by TransAmerica acting on an option from Sherrgold to carry out $3 million in exploration to earn a 49% interest on the Wasekwan Property, on which Burnt Timber is located. 7735 m (25 377 ft.) of diamond drilling was carried out by Lynngold in 1988, delineating the deposit to 122m (400 ft.) Sherrgold, under the new ownership of Hayes Resources, changed its’ name to Lynngold in late 1988 (Northern Miner, May 4, 1987).
LynnGold put forth plans for a feasibility study on the deposit, to be completed late 1989 (Northern Miner, May 30, 1989). Lynngold declared bankruptcy in 1989, following the closure of the MacLellan mine (See: Mind No. 640), all assets including the BT deposit was held in trust by DCC Equities.
No further work was completed until 1993, when Black Hawk Mining Inc. purchased the property, as part of the Keystone Gold Project (Black Hawk Mining Inc. Annual Report, 1993). Granduc Mining Corp. (formerly Cazador Exploration Inc.) administered a deal for the option to earn up to 50% interest, by investing $10 million in the project.
Four diamond drill holes were drilled, in early 1993, intersecting two bodies of ore along the Johnson Shear. Drill hole W8952 intersected a large orebody returning 23.8 m at 5.18g/t. DH W88114 intersected the same body returning 19.8 m at 4.42g/t. The next two drill holes, W8855 and W88115, both intersected the larger ore body and a smaller lens. W8855 intersected the smaller lens first, returning 7.9 m at 4.32 g/t, then intersected the larger orebody returning 13.7 m at 6.89 g/t. W881155 also intersected the smaller lens first, returning 2.1 m at 6.69 g/t, and then intersected the larger orebody, returning 14.0 m at 2.61 g/t (See Figure 2).
In September 1993, with reserves at 3.2 million t grading 2.37g/t, Black Hawk commenced open pit production on the deposit. In 1994, production reached its target rate of 1088 t (1200 tons) per day. In early 1996, Granduc and Black Hawk amalgamated into one company under the Black Hawk name for 100% ownership of the BT deposit (Northern Miner, February 2, 1996). Mining was completed at the BT pit, in June 1996 and all mining operations were transferred to the nearby Farley Lake mine (See: Mind No. 996).
As of 2002, the property held by Black Hawk, but no further work is being completed. Resources stand at 1.0 million t grading 2.9 g/t, for a total 2940 t (94 500 oz) Au (Black Hawk Mining, Annual Report, 1998).
