DESCRIPTION OF DEPOSIT
Sulphides occur in Precambrian metasediments and metavolcanics (schists and gneisses), on the eastern limb of the Threehouse Syncline. The tabular deposit strikes N65E and dips 60W. It is 823 m (2700 ft) long, along a plunge of 55N, although, its average strike length is 122 m (400 ft). It extends from 137 to 808 m (450 to 2650 ft), below surface, averaging 5.5 m (18 ft) wide.
The ore is richer in copper (Cu) for 0.6 or 0.9 m (2 or 3 ft) along the footwall where pyrrhotite is found. Disseminated chalcopyrite and pyrite occur sporadically in chlorite-biotite schists and in quartz-sericite schists. The pyrite contains interstitial chalcopyrite and gold and silver were found during processing.
ASSOCIATED MINERALS OR PRODUCTS OF VALUE
Zinc, gold, silver, kyanite
HISTORY OF EXPLORATION AND DEVELOPMENT
The deposit occurs at the northwestern part of the bend in Anderson Lake. The mine is at the end of a road, branching from Provincial Road 395.
The Lynx group of claims was staked in the 1920's. Nothing further is known about these claims.

Year Activity
1944 Dike 1 (P 7035) staked by C.J. Olsen
................Assigned to B.F. Smith
1945 Assigned to E.E. Ott.

Snow Lake Mines Ltd. and Weir Syndicate may have had options on the property (Mining claim maps in Manitoba Mines Branch, Unpublished Information File, 63J/13).
In 1952, the claims were cancelled. Astra 25 Fr. (P 35461) was staked by J.H. Kerr in 1955, and assigned to Walter Johnson shortly thereafter. Later that year, it was optioned to Hudson Bay Exploration and Development Company Limited (H.B.E.D.). Electromagnetic surveys were made and nearby claims, including the adjacent Astra 23, were diamond drilled.
In 1956, H.B.E.D. took up its option. Three years later, the claim was assigned to Hudson Bay Mining and Smelting Co. Limited (H.B.M. & S.), lease M-5721 was issued in 1959.
The discovery of the deposit was announced in 1964. Diamond drilling, to follow up detailed geophysical surveys between Stall Lake and Chisel Lake, was credited with finding the deposit. By April 1964, 590 000 tonnes (t) (650 000 tons) averaging 2.9% Cu were outlined to the 396 m (1300-ft) level (Northern Miner, April 30, 1964). By the end of 1964, the reserve estimate was increased to 817 000 t (900 000 tons) of the same grade (Northern Miner, September 10, 1964). Surface development began late that year. An access road was cleared, a 3-compartment shaft was started and sunk 14.6 m (48 ft), and the powerline was completed in 1965.
The shaft was 643 m (2110 ft) deep, by the end of 1966, and underground development was underway. In 1967, 2897 m (9506 ft) of exploration diamond drilling was completed. The shaft reached its final depth, in 1968, of 874 m (2866 ft). Levels were established at: 91 m; 183 m; 229 m; 274 m; 328 m; 381 m; 434 m; 488 m; 541 m; 594 m; 648 m; 707 m; 754 m; and 808 m (300 ft; 600 ft; 750 ft; 900 ft; 1075 ft; 1250 ft; 1425 ft; 1600 ft; 1775 ft; 1950 ft; 2125 ft; 2300 ft; 2475 ft; and 2650 ft). Diamond drilling and development work outlined 145 000 t (159 800 tons) of ore, averaging 4.3% Cu to the 701 m (2300 ft) level (H.B.M. & S., 1968 Annual Report). This is in addition to the previously known reserves of 1 616 600 t (1 781 500 tons) grading 3.79% Cu, 0.38 g/t (0.011 oz/ton) Au, and 5.83 g/t (0.17 oz/ton) Ag (World Mining, February 1969). Mining widths of ore averaged 5.5 m (18 ft) wide, but ranged from 1.5 to 15 m (5 to 50 ft).
In 1969, H.B.M. & S. expected to develop 1 043 560 t (1 150 000 tons) of ore in 10 stopes (Northern Miner, May 1, 1969). Reserves were increased by 481 000 t (530 000 tons) grading 4.7% Cu, by drilling and development work to the 808 m (2650-ft) level (H.B.M. & S., 1969 Annual Report). As of January 1, 1970, proven reserves were stated to be 2 243 000 t (2 472 000 tons) (2 742 000 a misprint) grading 4.01% Cu (Northern Miner of April 30, 1970).
Mining commenced on November 9, 1970, at a rate of 907 t (1000 tons) per day. See History of Production for production figures. The mining method was changed from open stope to cut-and-fill in 1972, due to poor ground conditions.
As of January 1, 1974, reserves at the Anderson Lake mine were 1 931 500 t (2 128 500 tons) grading 3.96% Cu, 0.1% Zn, 6.17 g/t (0.18 oz/ton) Ag and 0.41 g/t (0.012 oz/ton) Au (Cranstone and Hamilton, 1976). In 1974, drilling increased reserves by 166 000 t (183 000 tons) below the 808 m (2650-ft) level (H.B.M. & S., 1974 Annual Report).
The mine was shut down in February 1978, to permit deepening of the shaft by 132 m (434 ft), with a crusher to be installed below the bottom (914 m) level. Development was completed, in 1979, to the 914 m (3000 ft) level and production resumed with the new vertical-crater-retreat section supplying most of the ore. Production rate was 13 160 t (14 500 tons) of ore per month (White, 1981).
A shortage of skilled miners and tradesmen continued to affect production in 1980.
In 1981, diamond drilling from the 914 m (3000 ft) level located a new ore zone to the west of the main orebody. An exploration drift was driven to allow drilling down the plunge of the zone (White 1981). Recent drilling had apparently located the main orebody at a depth of 1036 m (3400 ft).
Surface samples were collected for an industrial minerals study by Yamada (1984). A further study by Gunter and Yamada (1985), concluded that the dump, which had been examined in a series of 60 cm deep test pits, was not a large source of kyanite, but that the footwall rocks of the mine had better concentrations of kyanite
The following measured and indicated reserves were reported:

Reserves as of December 31, 1984, were 996 054 t grading 3.54% Cu, 0.1% Zn, 0.75 g/t Au, 5.5 g/t Ag, 0.016% Pb (Lemieux and Laughlin, 1985). Production plus reserves, as of December 31, 1984, were 3 190 000 t grading 3.45% Cu and 0.1% Zn (Bamburak, 1990).
The Anderson mine closed in 1988 (Northern Miner, March 20, 1989). A joint Federal/Provincial 1:5 000 scale geological mapping program was done in 1989-1990 (Bailes, 1990). A till sample was collected for geochemical analyses by Gobert (1990), as part of a regional till sampling program.

REMARKS
Diamond drilling in 1972 to determine the structure of the deposit found "significant copper mineralization" 609 m (2000 ft. southwest of the mine that "merits further investigation by surface or underground exploration" (HBMS, 1972 Annual Report).
Astra 25 Fr. is described here because the shaft was sunk on this claim. The Anderson Lake deposit is covered by several claims.
May 55-3 indicates the presence of copper at the southwestern end of Anderson Lake and copper with pyrrhotite on the southeastern shore near its outlet.
