About Berkwood Resources:
Berkwood holds a 100% interest in the Prospect Valley Gold Property near Merritt, BC. Several areas of gold mineralization have been identified on the 10,871 Ha property. The majority of historic drilling has taken place in the centre of the claim block along the Discovery Trend. This drilling has outlined an extensive low grade epithermal gold system with indications of potential for additional and higher grade mineralization. The system remains open for expansion and other known zones of gold mineralization have yet to be drilled (see Berkwood news release dated January 25, 2012 for details).
Berkwood also has an option to earn a 100% interest in the Lac Guéret East Graphite Property. The property consists of 63 claims totalling 3402 Ha and is adjacent to the eastern boundary of Mason Graphite’s advanced Lac Guéret Property which has NI 43-101 compliant measured & indicated mineral resources of 7.6 million tonnes grading 20.40% Cgr (Carbon as Graphite). The Lac Guéret East Graphite Property shares a similar geological environment as Mason Graphite’s Lac Guéret Property including along strike stratigraphic units and structures. During prospecting the first graphite bearing zone on the Property was discovered. In July 2013 the Company acquired 4 additional claims which cover a reported (MRNQ, 2013_031) graphite showing discovered in 2011 during geological mapping by Géologie Québec government geologists. The graphite mineralization is described as massive with elevated Cgr values.
In addition Berkwood has an option to earn a 100% interest in the Peter Lake Copper Property. The property consists of 87 claims totalling 5086 Ha and is located in the Mont-Laurier Terrane, in the Central Grenville Geological Province, Quebec. During prospecting six check grab samples were collected from the two main mineralized zones at Peter Lake and returned assays ranging from 0.42% to 22.83% Copper and 0.13% to 0.73% Nickel as well as elevated gold, silver and cobalt values.
