In 2009 Red Mile Minerals purchased the option for the Blue Quartz property from Russet Lake Resources who had the original option agreement with Thundermin Resources Inc. and Wesdome Gold Mines Ltd.
The Blue Quartz project is favorably located, straddling both the Pipestone Fault and a subsidiary sub parallel fault, the Painkiller Lake Fault. The rocks along the trace of these two faults have been silicified and are anomalous in gold. The project hosts a number of historic exploration prospects that include underground exploration and development. The most prominent include the Blue Quartz Mine and the Clifford Shaft on the Blue Quartz property.
In the fall of 2010, the Company announced results from a four hole, 1500 meter diamond drilling program with significant intersections of 5.3 g/t Au over 2.8 meters, 23.8 g/t Au over 1.0 meter and 57.4 g/t Au over 0.2 meters.
In December of 2010, the Company entered into an option agreement with McLaren Resources Inc. whereby McLaren can earn 50% of the Company’s interest in the Blue Quartz Property by spending $200,000 on the property before September 2011. In addition, upon McLaren earning a 50% interest, McLaren will have the right of first refusal for the remaining 50%.
