The property area, or parts of it, has been held by a number of companies and at least three individuals over the last fifty plus years.

The Initial discovery of chalcopyrite and molybdenite on the property was made in a shallow excavation on the newly constructed Dungate Creek logging road about 1962.

The last drilling at Dungate was done in 1976.   Only one deep hole (333m long) was drilled in 1975 which 142 m of chalcopyrite reported at the bottom of the hole.

Drilling planned for 2021 will be comprised of 6 - 500 m holes to comprehensively test all targets at depth.
