Exploration activities conducted during 1997 included a helicopter-borne geophysical survey over the Bear claim group. Telkwa Gold Corporation contracted out to Frontier Geophysics the acquisition of magnetic, electromagnetic and VLF data to assist in the interpretation of structures and alteration zones and to expand on ground geophysics carried out in previous years.

As a follow-up to the geophysical survey which was completed in March, 1997, the Corporation undertook a modest field program consisting of  geochemical soil sampling on the Bear claim group during August to examine an area of anomalous geophysical response. Results of the geochemical survey were plotted and revealed anomalous copper, zinc and silver, parallel to the major structures. As well as an area measuring 200 meters by more than 600 meters of anomalous arsenic with coincident antimony and elevated gold.
