Exploration to date has included a projectwide airborne geophysical survey, extensive lithogeochemical sampling and diamond drilling. All of the claims making up the Break projects are subject to a 1.5-per-cent net smelter return royalty on production greater than 100,000 ounces of gold, or its equivalent, in favour of the aforesaid Cadillac Mining founders and insiders. Visible Gold Mines has acquired an exclusive option to earn a 60-per-cent interest in 217 of Cadillac Mining's 228 claims in its Break projects, covering approximately 7,423 hectares, in Rouyn, Beauchastel and Dasserat townships, west of Rouyn-Noranda, Quebec.
