Comments Geologic mapping continued by Xanadu in 2011, based on results to date indicating strong possiblilty of discovering additional mineralized porphyry copper. Previous exploration between 1999 and 2004 identified a large (> 7 square km) zone of porphyry-related advanced argillic alteration that is highly anomalous in Cu, Mo, Au, Ag and Ba.
