Claims 9326 consist of 8 units and are located about 1 km south of Murray Brook Lake & approximately 60 km west of Bathurst. A good gravel road leads to the property.

In 1986 assessment report # 473335, authored by Ken Whaley, indicated that a panned silt sample collect close to the south boundary of claim 9326 returned a value of 3935 ppb Au.

Also in 1986, NBDNR located a 450 ppb Au Anomaly in the area, the highest in their till survey. Other geochemical samples by Mr. Whaley ran 520 ppb in a gram, 1500 ppb Zn in a gossan zone.

The Murray Brook property overlies a sequence of Silurian siltstones trending northeasterly to the Bay of Chaleur, the sedimentary rocks are intruded by diorite dykes (Davis 1995)

2020 project: 165 soils samples done.

The soil survey was completed to test the splay faults from the Major Rocky-Millstream fault.
