TwoGeology of the Showing
     The showing, originally referred to as 50-RR-7, is located 0.38 miles (0.6 km) northeast of Hardin Lake on the RR Concession.
     The area of the showing is underlain by granite and granite gneisses which contain numerous mafic bands such as amphibolite and quartz-rich chlorite-epidote rocks.  The general strike is northeast and the area is cut by strong northeast and east lineaments which are probably fault zones.
     The showing consists of uranophane and pyrite mineralization associated with fractures that are deeply weathered and filled with rusty vuggy vein quartz.  Sampling returned a maximum assay of 0.63% U3O8 equivalent from two narrow parallel fractures 5 ft (1.5 m) apart in granite.

ThreeExploration History
     Showing 50-RR-7 was found and examined in 1950.  Athlodge Uranium Mines Ltd. located many anomalous areas during geiger and geological surveys and stripped the overburden from the most promising.  Sampling returned the values listed again.
      By 1955, the showing was covered by JUDY claim no. 2 owned by June Allen. In this year, 1 trench was completed in the immediate showing area and a second trench was completed to the west on JUDY claim no. 1 (AF 74N10-0274). No assay results are given.    
      By 1967, the showing was within CBS 1151. Consolidated Skeena Mines Ltd. completed an airborne scintillometer survey and a ground follow-up program of radiometric prospecting (AF 74N10-0404). A second small radioactive zone was located 0.7 miles (1.1 km) to the southwest along the southeast shore of Harding Lake.
