The AB property lies in the Backbone Ranges of the Mackenzie Mountains in the western Northwest Territories. Exploration work in this area first began in the 1970's but was very sporadic after 1980 due to falling metal prices and the remoteness of the area.
Carbonate hosted Zn-Pb deposits are found in this region including the AB-Main Zone showing covered by the AB claim.
The AB claim has been under development by Eagle Plains Resources Ltd. since it was acquired in 2005.
During the 2008 exploration program, 8 days were spent on the claim by a 2 person crew, as well as contractors from helicopter and exploration companies. Environmental consultants were also employed during the program. The exploration program was based out of the Border Lake camp which was supplied by float equipped fixed wing aircraft from Norman Wells, NWT.
