On April 9, 2010, Chatwin staff member Chris Zamora, R.P.Bio. and Matt Cleary,P.Geo a staff geologist with Piteau Associates Engineering Ltd. (Piteau) completed a site visit of the Queen’s Cove reserve and lands to the north, located at the head of Queen’s Cove and within the area locally known by the Doctors Lodge.The purpose of this visit was to select locations for test well construction.
Two locations were chosen. The first was located in the village close to the existing dwellings. The second located approximately 1.5km north of the village adjacent to the newly constructed access road to Queen’s Cove. It was hoped that the village test well would be successful, but the second location was considered to have a higher probability to produce adequate flow.
