Trump Island Copper-Cobalt Property, Newfoundland and Labrador
King’s Bay Resources’ North Trump Island Property consists of 8 mineral claims encompassing an area of 2 square kilometers and is located 7 kilometers south of town of Twillingate, Newfoundland and Labrador. The property’s history dates back to the mid 1860’s when a 20-foot (6.1 m) shaft was sunk on a mineralized zone of massive chalcopyrite. At the bottom of the shaft, it was reported that the mineralized zone expanded with depth but, due to limited technology, no further excavation could be safely continued. Follow up grab sampling in 1999 by G. Lewis, an experienced local prospector, revealed mineralization assaying up to 3.80% Cu, 0.30% Co, 2.90 g/t Au and 10.9 g/t Ag near the old Clymo mine shaft. The property has not been drilled to date. The compilation of the recent 1998-99 field work done by Lewis suggests that a more detailed exploration program is warranted.
