Preliminary geological evaluation of the property shows the area to be underlain by Tertiary aged volcanics and volcaniclastics of an andesitic to rhyolitic nature. The area is crossed by several structural lineaments, one of which is seen to host precious and base metal mineralization. No previous exploration work has been conducted on the property and as such, work contemplated and completed by the Company is preliminary in nature at this stage.Under the terms of the option agreement, Geologix has the right to earn a 100% interest in the concession by making staged payments totaling US$375,000 to the owner over a period of four years from the date of execution of the option.
