Three Minfile occurrences are located on the Rhod property, the Alice (Minfile 082ESE225), Roderick Dhu (Minfile 082ESE125) and Lady of the Lake (Minfile 082ESE127). The Alice occurrence represents the northern on-strike continuation of the Amandy vein, which is located on Ximen's Gold Drop property and which has historical production (1936-1941) totaling 1,059 tonnes at an average grade of 10.0 g/t Au and 185 g/t Ag (1165 tons averaging 0.29 oz/t Au, 5.41 oz/t Ag). On the Alice claim, the vein reportedly ranges from 30-46 centimetres in width and has been traced on surface for 61 metres. Gold grade on this portion of the vein is unknown. The Roderick Dhu and Lady of the Lake occurrences cover similar veins, located a few hundred metres to the east of the Amandy-Alice vein. At the Roderick Dhu showing, the vein is reported to range from 5 to 30 centimetres and to be well mineralized with galena, pyrite and tellurides. It has been traced on surface for a strike length of about 150 metres. At the south end, a 23 meter deep shaft and a 30 metre long area of stoping to surface explore the vein. A separate 7.6 meter deep shaft tests the vein at the north end. A 1921 historical reference reports values of 1.12 oz/t Au and 1.5 oz/t Ag from the Roderick Dhu vein. Historic production from the vein, dating to 1940, is 25 tonnes averaging 19.92 g/t Au and 275 g/t Ag (27 tons averaging 0.59 oz/t Au and 8.2 oz/t Ag). Several veins are known at the Lady of the Lake occurrence, including a 40 centimetre vein that is exposed in a small pit, and 180 meters to the south of this, a 75 centimetre wide vein that has been explored by a 30 meter long adit. Gold grade is unknown.
