The Forester Lake project is 100% owned by Benton Resources Corp and was obtained by staking. The Property is located approximately 100km north of Pickle Lake, ON and roughly 25km southeast of GoldCorp’s Musselwhite Gold Mine. It is positioned at the southeast extent of the North Caribou Greenstone Belt.
The ground was acquired due to its location and geophysical similarities to the Musselwhite Gold mine located 25 km northwest of the property. Historic drilling intersected gold mineralization grading up to 16.2 g/t over 0.5m, 12.3 g/t over 1.5m and 13 g/t over 0.9m. Benton hired Universal Wing Geophysics to conduct an 897 line kilometer airborne magnetic survey.
In early 2011, Benton optioned the Forester project to Parkside Resources Corp. who has the right to earn up to 70% through cash payments totaling $50,000 and exploration commitments of $1,000,000.
