Prospectors discovered mineralization at the Tom site and Hudbay staked the ground

A number of small to medium exploration programs were carried out at Tom that included geological mapping, geophysics, geochemistry and drilling
1970-1971
 
 
 
 
An underground exploration adit and workings totalling 6,189ft (1,887m) were excavated for bulk sampling and underground drilling of the Tom deposit

The Jason deposit was discovered and staked by the Ogilvie Joint Venture. Additional exploration programs were carried out at Tom and Jason including geological mapping, geophysics, geochemistry and drilling

Additional exploration drilling was carried out on both Tom and Jason to outline additional mineralization and improve economics
