Regional and Property Geology:The bedrock geology of the Kobeh property is covered by a shallow pediment, overlying the Mississippian Webb and Ordovician Formations. Historical mineralization on the adjacent Afgan property is hosted in outcrops of clay and silica matrix breccias within the basal Webb Formation and is associated with NNW and NW trending faults. The western side of the Kobeh property contains a fault contact between Tertiary basalt capped ridges and an area of shallow pediment. These fault contacts have been interpreted by airborne geophysical surveys as zones of potential alteration and gold mineralization within areas of low resistivity.
