About the Holy Grail property

The Holy Grail property starts about 10 kilometers north of the town of Terrace in the Province of British Columbia, Canada. It is easily accessible by highway 16, the Nisga’a highway and a network of logging roads. It covers about 700 square kilometers and forms a horseshoe that encloses our fully owned Knauss Creek property in its southeastern part.

Prospecting led to the discovery of several gold, silver, copper, lead and zinc showings. Gold rich grab samples with values up to 50 g/t Au were obtained.

The southern tip of the Golden Triangle arrives just northwest of PRR properties. The Bowser Lake and the Hazelton Groups hosting most of the deposits and mines of this area are also underlying the Knauss Creek and Holy Grail.
