TwoGeology of the Showing
     The showing, also referred to as RR-50-1, is located on the western shore halfway down the southwest arm of Hardin Lake.
     The area of the showing is underlain by granite and granite gneisses   containing numerous mafic bands, such as amphibolites and quartz-rich       chlorite epidote rocks.  The host rocks trend northeast and the area is cut by strong northeast and east lineaments which are probably fault zones.     
     The mineralization is concentrated in narrow shears which parallel the gneissosity of the host rocks and occur at or near the granite-mafic contact.  The zone was traced for 300 ft (91 m) over narrow widths along the south side of a depression.  An assay of 0.53% U3O8 equivalent was obtained from a sample of biotite gneiss exhibiting considerable stain but no visible mineralization.

ThreeExploration History
     Showing RR-50-1 was found in 1950 on the RR Concession by Athlodge Uranium Mines Ltd.  It was outlined by geiger and geological surveys and the most promising areas stripped of overburden.  The zone was traced and sampled and returned the values listed above.
     By 1968, the showing was within CBS 1153. Consolidated Skeena Mines Ltd. completed an airborne scintillometer survey and ground follow-up prospecting (AF 74N10-0357). Numerous low grade uranium showings (< 4,000 cps) were located. SMDI 1358 was re-located.
