The West Timmins (Bristol Township) Project, which is currently under option to Lake Shore Gold corporation, consists of two blocks totaling 832 hectares in 52 claims.
The nearby Timmins-Porcupine mining camp is a world-class district, with in excess of 70 million ounces of gold mined over the last century. It has long been recognized that the Timmins West camp, located along strike from the Timmins-Porcupine camp, is a highly prospective area for the discovery of similar mineralization.
The West Timmins Project is strategically located adjacent to Lakeshore's 1.2M ounce Timmins Mine Project and less than one kilometre from Lakeshore's recent high-grade gold intersection in the Rusk Zone on the Thunder Creek Joint Venture. The Rusk Zone intersection represents one of the broadest intercepts reported from the West Timmins camp grading 12.75 g/t gold over an extraordinary 83.4m. Previous drilling on the southwestern section of Probe's West Timmins property identified alteration similar to that associated with peripheral phases of this discovery. Probe believes the property has the potential to host similar gold mineralization.
