The immediate area of the claims has little in the way of historical recorded work. Denison Mines and Amax Exploration were very active through the 1970’s to the east and south of the property
In 2005 Triex Minerals Corp., in a joint venture agreement with Roughrider Uranium Corporation, conducted an airborne DIGHEM survey that covered in part the Flowerdew Lake property. An interpretation of the results revealed moderate to strong formational (correlation with magnetics) electromagnetic conductors trending northeast. There are several inferred north-south breaks that are probably faulting as evidenced by the offset in magnetic anomaly and conductor axes. A possible fold nose and overturned strata were also interpreted.
In 2006 Triex followed up the airborne results with a detailed induced polarization survey. Interpretation showed a significant northeast trending resistivity low zone that may correspond with a contact between semi-pelites and granite gneiss. A correlation was also found between a northeast trending moderate magnetic high zone and the resistivity low zone. This could indicate mineralization within the pelite-granite gneiss contact zone.
