In addition to Flame & Moth and Bermingham, Alexco's exploration team was kept busy with a number of other, earlier stage targets during 2012, conducting drilling programs on no fewer than 10 targets during the year. This prolific and historic silver district encompasses geology that lends promise of many more discoveries to come. The Husky prospect, at the site of yet another historical mine near Alexco's site administration offices, was drilled at depth below the main historical mine workings with 14 drill holes. Results included a new footwall vein discovery that assayed 14.5 ounces of silver per ton over 0.65 meters, providing yet another new future target. Other prospects included in the 2012 exploration drilling program were Mackeno, McQuesten and Mom & Son.
