Location and accuracy The West Eva prospect is near hill 3812, about 2 miles northeast of the junction of My Creek and Molly Creek. Two holes were drilled about 0.5 mile apart and the coordinates are between them, about 0.3 mile west of the center of section 7, T. 27 N., R. 11 E. The location is accurate.

Geologic setting

Geologic description

There was little information about the West Eva prospect until Full Metal Minerals Inc. began to work in the area in 2006. The country rocks in the area are amphibolite-facies Paleozoic metamorphic rocks of the 40-Mile assemblage (Stevens, 2010). The West Eva prospect is marked by geochemical soil anomalies in lead, silver, zinc. Full Metal explored the anomalies with two holes that were drilled in 2010, one 192 meters deep and the other 298 meters deep. The best intercepts were three, 6-meter intervals with 15-30 grams of silver per tonne, 0.0 to 0.04 percent copper, 0.36 to 0.96 percent lead, and 0.04 to 0.6 percent zinc; and a 1.4 meter intercept with 23 grams of silver per tonne, 0.01 percent copper, 0.5 percent lead, and 0.33 percent zinc.
