Drilling is focused on ten distinct target areas identified through a 6,200 line kilometre deep penetrating GEOTEM airborne electromagnetic and magnetic survey flown in the fall of 2003.

A $1,000,000 program began in mid-February, consisting of horizontal loop electromagnetic and magnetic ground geophysical surveys and 3,000 metres of drilling in 10 to 12 diamond drill holes.

In previous exploration work on the 4,400 square kilometre Square kilometre (U.S. spelling: square kilometer), symbol km², is a decimal multiple of the SI unit of surface area, the square metre, one of the SI derived units. 1 km² is equal to:
  • 1,000,000 m²
  • 100 ha (hectare)
Conversely:
  • 1 m² = 0.
 Stephens Lake Project, both sulphide iron formation and ultramafic rocks have been separately intersected in diamond drilling Diamond Drilling is a highly specialized industry used for mineral exploration around the world. Most commonly using wireline and core bits with diamond encrusted matrix. To drill holes to max depths of twelve thousand feet, for the recovery of core used in verifying mineral . Sulphide iron formation and ultramafic rocks are key ingredients in the Thompson Nickel Belt model.

The Stephens Lake Project is a joint exploration effort by Donner and Falconbridge Limited focused on exploring the Circum-Superior boundary, northeast of Thompson, for magmatic nickel, copper and platinum group element deposits. The Circum-Superior is host to the Thompson Nickel Belt and Falconbridge's Raglan deposits, and is one of the key nickel producing belts in the world.
