The Western area drilled from 2003 to 2006 includes 44 boreholes totalling 9,448ft and covers an area of 6.33 acres. Of 216 samples collected, 185 were tested for their mineralogy (XRD) and 131 for their chemistry (XRF). This area is dominantly altered Monzonite with some veins and fissures of whitish clay with kaolinite, halloysite and alunite. One area covering 0.8 acres shows an average value of 25.6% halloysite. Within the altered monzonite visible pyrite is observed.
