The Smiley property was staked in October 2009 to cover the potential of fairly pure, white limestone, which had been known from rock exposures on old logging roads in the general area. Recent logging by WFP has exposed the area long the mapped limestone-intrusive contact.
The present program consisted of prospecting and mapping in mid-2012. Prospecting and mapping at a scale of 1:5,000 was also completed in 2010 along the overgrown access roads to the west.
Previously, the area was examined by Achermann and Duncan G. Ogden for Industrial Fillers and by David Coffin for Vanguard Consulting between June 15 and 19, 1988. A short diamond drilling program was conducted to the west of the property between August 2 and August 10, 1988. Some regional geological mapping was completed by Howard Brown for Pleuss Stauffer in 1984.
Initial discussions have taken place with WFP Logging on the possibility of using the private deep water dock facilities at Beaver Cove. In the past the Kelsy Bay-Beaver Cove Ferry used the ramp and the Nimpkish Iron operation also loaded barges at Beaver Cove.
