Smufty recently threw up a post regarding ATAC Resources so I decided to take a look at them. I did and ran across Manson Creek Resources. I believe they border each other. This is literally a penny stock. http://www.manson.ca/During the course of my DD I ran across the term “Gossans”. Maybe someone knows the correlation between them and the likelihood of a big PM “strike”. You can see one in the corporate presentation I have a link to, below.This is not a recommendation. I just think they deserve a more extensive “look”.Full disclosure: My New Year’s resolution was to have investment themes each quarter in 12’. This quarter it is buying stocks under $1 with potential. There is just something I like about pulling the trigger for several K shares at a time. BTW: I am getting used to using “threads” here. If you get / see a post from me that is totally out of context, now you know why.Sky PilotOfficial Web Link Assistant to Sinch**re: ATAC: Next to property:Manson Creek Resources - MCX.V / MCKRF pkhttp://www.manson.ca/http://www.manson.ca/news/http://www.manson.ca/projects/http://www.manson.ca/pdf/financials/September%2030%202011%20...Manson Creek Resources Ltd. (Manson Creek) is a mineral exploration company. The company was incorporated in 1997. It principally involves in the acquisition, exploration and development of gold, silver, and base metals properties. It operates in British Columbia and the Yukon as well as a uranium project in Saskatchewan. Its projects include Black Lake Uranium, Meridian Gold Silver, Gillman Silver Lead Zinc, CR Copper-Molybdenum property and Molygarchy Molybdenum project. The Black Lake Uranium project comprises of two claim groups encompassing 5,848 hectares in Northern Saskatchewan. The Virgin Arm Gold property is located 65 km north of Gander, Newfoundland covering 1047 hectares.Corporate presentation:http://www.manson.ca/pdf/presentation/January%202012%20MCK%2...** Management:http://www.reuters.com/finance/stocks/companyOfficers?blob=&...*** Dr. Shane Ebert of Northern Abitibi is involved……… See corporate presentation, above & Directors below.**http://www.manson.ca/projects/tell_project.phpThe Company’s 100% owned Tell property, 107 claims totalling 2,226 hectares, is located approximately 140 kilometers east of Mayo, Yukon and is contiguous with Strategic Metals Ltd. Goz claims and ATAC Resources Ltd. Rau claims. Many of the recent gold and silver discoveries in the region have been made in areas of prominent known, but not drill tested, gossan zones that contain anomalous zinc, lead and pathfinder elements. Coring the Tell project is the large and undrilled Tell natural spring gossan and vegetation kill zone which extends over 300 meters. The Tell gossan is extremely significant due to the number of successful drill discoveries made on gossans in the region.http://www.manson.ca/pdf/news/News%20Release%20-%20January%2...http://www.manson.ca/pdf/news/News%20Release%20-%20November%...http://www.manson.ca/pdf/news/New%20Release%20-%20June%2027%...http://www.manson.ca/pdf/news/News%20Release%2010-11%20MCK%2...**Directors: Shane Ebert Douglas Porter Regan ChernishJean Pierre JutrasGordon ClarkeOfficers: Regan Chernish, PresidentJean Pierre Jutras, Vice-PresidentShari Difley, Chief Financial Officer**1/24/12http://www.manson.ca/pdf/news/News%20Release%20-%20January%2...http://www.stockhouse.com/financialtools/sn_newsreleases.asp...http://www.stockhouse.com/Bullboards/MessageDetailThread.asp...

(TSX VENTURE:MCK)**Manson Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MCK)Manson Creek Secures Diamond Drill For Tell Property in Yukonhttp://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/45929118/ns/business-press_relea...1/19/12CALGARY, ALBERTA — Manson Creek Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:MCK) ('Manson Creek') is pleased to announce that a diamond drill rig has been confirmed for the upcoming exploration season on the Tell property located in the Rackla Gold Belt in the Yukon. The Tell property, located immediately south of ATAC Resources Ltd. Rau claim block, witnessed the discovery of six additional mineralized natural spring gossans in 2011.“The gossans are the result of fluid movement through relatively shallow polymetallic zone(s) with the resultant strongly mineralized fluids reaching the surface and producing the identified gossanous zones. The Company speculates that the complex structural history of the region has produced a series of normal and other faults which have provided the plumbing system necessary for the fluids as well as elevating the mineralized zones closer to the modern day surface.”“Manson Creek believes the seven Tell property gossans to be of extreme significance due to the number of successful drill discoveries made on similar gossans in the region. ATAC Resources Ltd.'s Ocelot discovery was made by targeting an undrilled natural spring surface gossan that has associated strongly anomalous zinc and other pathfinder element sample results. Like the Ocelot zone, the seven Tell property gossans are located near regional carbonate units within structurally complex geology in, and proximal to, the Rackla gold belt. The seven Tell property gossans have never been drill tested.”**6/1/10http://www.marketwire.com/press-release/manson-creek-acquire...Manson Creek Resources Ltd.: Virgin Arm Gold Project Exploration Update**M&A History:http://www.alacrastore.com/mergers-acquisitions/Manson_Creek...http://panarc-resources.com/panarc_003.htmMISC:Exploration in 2011 focused on the Tell Project in the Yukon and the Virgin Arm Gold Project in Newfoundland. The first pass of exploration on the Tell property yielded the remarkable discovery of six new gossan zones proximal to the main Tell showing gossan. The Company has now identified and outlined seven mineralized natural spring gossans on the Tell property. Exploration on the Virgin Arm gold project involved detailed soil sampling, trenching of newly discovered geochemical anomalies, and the successful completion of a seven hole diamond drill campaign. These two exciting projects provide excellent opportunity in a market of record high gold prices. Manson Creek geologists, prospecting in the area of the original Tell natural spring gossan and vegetation kill zone, have discovered six new, well developed, active and previously active natural spring gossans; Crystal Springs, Ash Springs, Area 51, Roswell, Majestic and Corona. The new discoveries extend over an area 600 meters roughly east-west, from the large Tell Zone and 450 meters north-south. Many of the gossans contain numerous active and previously active spring vents. Soil and rock samples collected from the Tell Zone, Crystal Springs, Ash Springs, Area 51, Majestic and Corona zones have returned highly anomalous zinc, nickel, lead, arsenic and numerous other gold pathfinder element values. Results from the Roswell discovery are pending. Property-wide stream sampling has outlined two additional, regional geochemical anomalies Area 13 and Area 15, located 2 kilometers and 4 kilometers west of the main Tell showing respectively. Manson Creek believes the seven Tell property gossans to be of extreme significance due to the number of successful drill discoveries made on similar gossans in the region. ATAC Resources Ltd.’s Ocelot discovery was made by targeting an undrilled natural spring surface gossan with associated strongly anomalous zinc and lead sample results. Like the Ocelot zone, the seven Tell property gossans are located near regional carbonate units within structurally complex geology in, and proximal to, the Rackla gold belt. The seven Tell property gossans have never been drill tested.**Sky PilotOfficial Web Link Assistant to Sinch
