With claims originally staked by Don McKinnon (of the Hemlo gold deposit), the Hawkins Project consists of 419 optioned claims and 520 E2Gold Claims. The current focus of exploration activities is the McKinnon Deposit, which consists of the original McKinnon claims, along with the historical Shenango shafts, from which 66oz Au was produced.
The initial focus will be on enlarging the McKinnon gold deposit with current Inferred Resource of 6.20 Mt at 1.65 g/t Au for 328,800 oz Au. Drilling will focus on in-fill, step-out, and at depth of the McKinnon deposit. Exploration of the lesser known areas will take the form of reconnaissance mapping.
The project is accessible year-round through paved roads, logging roads and railway lines. Located strategically just south of the Trans-Canada Highway and on the confluence of two active railway lines. The land consists of both semi-boggy and dry areas, allowing for year-round drilling.
