DESCRIPTION OF DEPOSIT
The deposit is situated within pegmatite dykes and quartz veins occurring in Archean metavolcanic rock, close to a contact with a porphyritic granite. A 4-foot wide pegmatite dyke, striking N 60 E and dipping slightly to the southeast, contains molybdenite in lamellar masses up to 2 or 3 inches in diameter and in scales and small crystals. Where a very acid layer cuts across the dyke, fine grained molybdenite occurs as clots, several inches in diameter. A flexible greenish coloured mica is prominent in parts of the dyke.

HISTORY OF EXPLORATION AND DEVELOPMENT
The deposit is located approximately one mile north of the west end of Falcon Lake. The Gull claim was staked by Jas. Cuddy in 1917 probably for gold. Molybdenite crystals were hand-cobbed during World War I until the high grade material was exhausted. In places the molybdenite content was estimated to run as high as 1%.

This property has been restaked many times.
