Lithological mapping and rock chip sampling
completed across 30km
Savannah noted that rock chip sampling
results from the Gaddamah prospect have shown grades of up to 5.
They include: emergency repairs, owner occupied co-ops and condos, areas where lead based paint was removed and certified lead free by a licensed inspector and areas certified lead free via XRF analysis or paint chip sampling
by a certified lead testing firm.
Reconnaissance chip sampling
at "La Patriota" returned a best result of 81.
The earlier program reported a chip sampling
grade of .
of bedrock trench walls created through the artisanal workings is ongoing and is being completed with the objective of indicating the distribution of gold throughout near-surface section, and the presence of gold in different lithologies.
Over the radiometric anomaly, soil and rock chip sampling
returned anomalous values over a 1200mx1900m area.
Geochemically copper appears to be the most enriched metal from the rock chip sampling
with 25 samples having greater than 1,000 ppm Cu and a high value of 11.
The chip sampling
of the 17 x 27 meter area returned an average of 7.
Prior rock grab and chip sampling
from numerous small-scale historic workings, located within the large gold soil anomaly, returned some spectacular gold values (see previous News Releases).
17 grams / tonne gold over 50 metres of chip sampling
In 2004, airborne magnetic and stream sediment surveys were completed over the Petancol license along with rock chip sampling
and detailed geologic mapping.
