6月15日th, 2011, several claims in the McFaulds Lake and Koper Lake areas that belonged to MacDonald Mines Exploration Ltd. (“MacDonald) were cancelled by MNDM and declared open for staking on June 17th。麦克唐纳提到了这些性质Duncan和彭德（图6）。地面的西北角宣布开放近科佩尔湖（邓肯）是从Noront的鹰二，黑鸟和三倍J矿点，并从鹰巢存款2公里仅有600米跑马圈地。由于预计其他几个政党将有兴趣在跑马圈地，这些非常重要的要求，合景泰富从事由2架直升机是有以前的经验在开幕当天的规则，并在直升机的跑马圈地跑马圈地支持的14专业的跑马圈地船员，的实用方法在跑马圈地常用詹姆斯湾低地。这种方法的前提是跑马圈地法规没有规定铆接器的运输方式，而且虽然铆接器必须是现在，他并不一定必须要在地面上，提供了stakers佣工标要求边界上同时与要求后竖立在地上。随着＃1职位外，铆接器从直升机内，而徘徊在后位置刻职。该职位由从直升机上投下他们顺时针顺序启动，并在岗位＃1完成架设。相邻科佩尔湖两个16〜部权利要求书在刚刚超过一个小时进行押，后面两个在McFaulds湖（彭德）更多。 The only other stakers competing for the same ground were two individuals engaged by Noront to stake on foot. They completed staking two 2-unit claims by noon, and another two 2-unit claims by 4pm. The remainder of the open ground was staked during the following two days. MNDM accepted the recording of those claims staked on behalf of KWG on June 21st. MNDM later received applications to record claims on behalf of Noront as “filed only” status since their completion time was later than the KWG claims. Noront subsequently filed a dispute over the manner the KWG claims were staked. Almost 3 years later, on April 24 and 25th, a Mining Recorders hearing was held and ruled in KWG’s favour. Noront appealed that ruling to the Mining and Lands Commissioners office. That hearing has yet to be scheduled.
MacDonald let these claims lapse when the assessment credits gained from airborne geophysical surveys ran out. The surveys did not generate electro-magnetic conductors that warranted drill testing for volcanogenic massive sulphides that MacDonald was searching for. However, the combined magnetic and gravity surveys on the Koper Lake (Duncan) and Pender claims do indicate the presence of a mafic intrusion, a potential host to both chromite and nickel-copper mineralization.
On June 5th，KWG宣布购买由4个16单位的权利要求（4221150，4221151，4221152和4221153），并从麦克唐纳112-单元根据权利要求（4213083），称为霍恩比特性（图6）的特性的。权利要求书附连到大爸爸权利要求块的南部边界，并且也连接到Fancamp权利要求的东部边界。麦克唐纳上钻电磁目标搜索火山铜锌矿床没有成功四个孔。这个属性最有希望的目标是在西部的要求，其中火环入侵承载大爸爸铬铁矿床穿越要求。基于磁性的和重力数据时，根据权利要求包含大约一个从未被通过钻孔测试的入侵的1公里段。除了潜在的发现铬铁矿中，霍恩比属性应探索入侵托管镍铜矿床，火山托管铜锌矿床和黄金。
