Santa Cruz Property, BCN: Prospecting and regional geochemical surveys located a large Au anomalous area. Parallel and sub-parallel qtz-bearing vein and stockworks have been identified over 8 km of strike. At least 6 samples of 1.0-1.5m width gave values from 3-12 grams Au. Exploration to resume in mid-January, 1997 on 38 square kilometres Ruperts work to date has discovered six locations with visible gold along a strike length of a 10.5 kilometre long structure. An extensive gold-bearing quartz vein/stockwork system is associated with this major regional structure. The Santa Cruz area is one of considerable historic gold production by local artisans, several old pits and short vertical shaftswere noted by Rupert field exploration crews. No evidence of drilling was found.

El Soccorro Property, BCN: 72 square km. The property is adjacent to an area with a long history of small scale placer and hard rock mining which ended in 1910 at the time of the Mexican Revolution. The property has the potential to contain the extension of this mineralization.
San Jose Property, BCN: 50 square km was acquired for its potential to contain the extension of epithermal gold bearing veins known to occur on an adjacent ground.
