EXPLORATION AND DEVELOPMENT
The deposit lies on the north shore of Wanipigow Lake and is
approximately 4.8 km north of Provincial Road No. 304.
The Lakeshore M.C.
(44784) was staked by E. Bonus in 1928. Some surface work was done before the
property was assigned to The Grand Central Gold Mines Limited in 1929.
Pits and trenches were dug.
In 1932 the Walsh brothers optioned the claim by
unregistered option. In 1933 a two-compartment shaft was sunk to approximately
33 m and a five head stamp mill moved to the property.The mill ran only a few
months, and operations were suspended in late 1933, with only 272 tonnes of ore
milled. Termination date of the option is unknown.
The property has had
several owners since 1938 and considerable surface work has been completed. The
shaft, however, was not deepened.
