The thrust of additional work will have the immediate goal of assigning continuity and grade to the lithium bearing pegmatites, and will likely take the form of stripping - washing outcrop
areas, followed by channel sampling and bulk sampling.
Soil sampling will be trialled in areas of no outcrop
to assist in the definition of drilling targets.
It is likely that other burrows or ichnological structures formed by vertebrates exist in eastern Texas but have been unrecognized or unobserved due to limited outcrop
area and exposure.
OUT OF THIS WORLD: The Mars outcrops
scientists say point to ancient lakes
The Telluride Zone was discovered in outcrop
at 2600 meters (8500 feet) elevation on the northwest ridge of Mount Cairnes, approximately 4.
While Shefsky credits his exploration team for the success they have enjoyed, he also says luck plays a big hand in finding a diamond-bearing outcrop
so close to the highway.
During future field research in the area, Wegweiser plans to look for more outcrops
of ash so she can better determine the extent of the fire.
Strongly fractured rock exposed in small pits and outcrops
within the geochemical anomaly assay from the 10 ppb detection limit to 2220 ppb gold.
Vail says one reason for publishing theMarch SCIENCE paper, and for his recent move from Exxon to Rice University in Houston, is to develop a data base that is in the public domain: The new sea level charts of the last 250 million years are based on marine outcrops
around the world, which anyone can examine.
Erosion has produced topographic relief with some vein outcrops
more than 200 meters above the valley base with areas of quartz stock-work veinlets and broad argillic alteration suggesting open pit potential.
Prospecting, till sampling and reconnaissance stream sediment sampling have resulted in the discovery of eight kimberlites in outcrop
and an additional five areas with kimberlite rubble in glacial till where bedrock sources have not yet been found.
The assays announced represented four grab samples from small outcrops
in the mineralized area.
