The Glenrock property contains several gold showings at surface and has been explored since 1951 when high-grade gold was discovered at the Glenrock and Bjornaa showings by Glenrock Mines Ltd. Subsequent to the discovery a series of trenches further uncovered gold-bearing quartz veins over a distance of 250 m. Shallow drilling tested the first 30 m vertically below surface with most holes intersecting anomalous gold.
In 1988 Duration Mines drilled a series of shallow holes focused on a trend that included the STP showing, a gold-rich sulphide-bearing quartz vein located in the northeast section of the property. Drillhole DM88-03 intersected 1.91 g/t Au and 3.06% Cu over 6.21 m. This intersection was never fully followed up and remains open in two directions.
In 1991 Noranda undertook an exploration program at Glenrock consisting of surface mapping, sampling and trenching. Two trenches located over the main Glenrock trend encountered 3.96 g/t Au over 8.0 m and 4.56 g/t Au over 6.0 m and were separated 50 m apart along trend.
In 1997 Aurogin Resources Ltd (Aurogin) drilled a series of holes, some at Glenrock and others across the rest of the property to test known surface showings. Highlights from this exploration program included 1.34 g/t Au over 13.7 m in AR97-08, 1.97 g/t Au over 2.0 m in AR97-14 and 3.36 g/t Au over 4.17 m in AR97-04 at 43 m.
In 2010 Hudson River acquired a 100% interest to the mineral claims that include the Glenrock, Bjornaa and STP showings from the RRS Syndicate for 2.1 million common shares of HRM, $10,000 in cash and a 1.5% Net Smelter Return (NSR). Hudson River also staked additional ground around the area for a total of 18 unpatented mineral claims totaling 2,515 Ha. This entire property is referred to as Glenrock.
In 2010 Hudson River completed a high resolution airborne magnetic gradiometer survey over the entire property. This survey identified two major structural trends, one of which is parallel to the known mineralization at the Glenrock showing.
In late 2010 Hudson River sampled two main trends (Glenrock-Bjornaa) and STP. Highlights from that program included a 58.5 g/t Au sample at the Bjornaa showing and a 6.58 g/t Au sample at STP.
In 2011 Hudson River plans to drill a series of up to 12 shallow drillholes to test for the continuity of the Glenrock trend over a distance of 450 m and at depth.
Glenrock is located 75 km north of Sault Ste. Marie and is easily accessible from the Trans- Canada Highway via a well maintained logging road.
