Another mining operation known as the Blake Gold Mine Prospect was reported to have been uncovered by a prospector who was identified as R.G. Gilson. He additionally had uncovered a gold occurrence in 1929, which would make the Blake Prospect go into further explorations procedures. During this time period the prospector himself had decided to sell this claim off to the Consolidate Mining and Smelting Company of Canada in 1931. Company officials from the Consolidated Mining and Smelting Company of Canada, had started doing their own prospecting within this claim zone. Once this had all commenced, the company was underway with a series of pits and trenches to see what was hidden beneath the solid hard rock. In addition the company would uncover a massive quartz vein that was cut to the length of 1,200 feet. This whole entire exploratory phase had soon encountered a promising vein structure of Pyrite and Pyrrhotite occurrences. Further into examination the company would end up encountering a sulphide mineralization which had started a whole new exploration of diamond drilling. These results from the core samples had soon assayed 0.13 ounce of gold per a ton. 6.4% Lead, 8% copper, and 17% zinc. With not enough encouraging results the mining operation was now lapsed and completely abandoned from any more exploration or developments
By 1941, the mine was being re-staked by R.G. Gilson who started his own explorations of the Blake Gold Mine Prospect. He addition had started this procedure by stripping away at the overburden to uncover any more potential findings. However nothing encouraging had came from these explorations to continue further mining operations within this claimed area. With not enough encouraging results the mine was later sold to the Halkin Mines Limited in 1952.
During 1952, the Halkin Mines Limited would end up going under more explorations when the mine was being once again examined. Some of these things had included 3 diamond drill holes, sampling, and more trenching explorations. But the mine it self was reported to have not continued operations as the company did not come across any potential discoveries within this claimed area.
The Canadian Astoria Minerals Limited would end up staking this potential gold mining zone in 1956. Company officials soon had other plans when they decided to conduct some of their own testing's on the future Blake Gold Mine Prospect location. These massive exploration methods had included mapping, Geological and Geophysical Surveying's, and ten diamond drill holes that totalled 2,004 feet of core sampling. But nevertheless, the Blake Gold Mine Prospect had not contributed any new finding to commence more explorations or development. So the company it self had decided to completely abandoned this small scale prospect in 1963. By this time the company would sell this prospect location to the Goldray Mines Limited. Additionally the company had commence a small drilling program of three holes that would total 2,681 feet of core sampling.
Another company known as the Heritage Exploration Inc. would end up staking this claim in 1998. During this time the company had other plans when it would commence its own explorations of the Blake Gold Mine Prospect location. A huge amount of prospecting and sampling had taken place but did not intersect any good findings for this exploration company. One last staking was done in 2005, when Mobridge Exploration Inc. had done some ground geophysical surveying on the property before abandoning mining operations.
