The first phase of the 2016 exploration program has been budgeted at approximately $500,000 and consisted of soil sampling, trenching, prospecting, ground magnetic surveys, and relogging
of historic core holes.
Work planned for the current field season includes approximately 2,000 m of drilling; relogging
of existing drill core; surface mapping and regional soil sampling over a 105-km strike length to develop new targets for future seasons; and prospecting to investigate promising contacts and structures.
confirmed the West Orebody deposit remains underexplored by short, historic underground drilling and a few widely-spaced surface holes.
By sharing ULLOs with other learners and relogging
the other learners' ULLOs, the acquisition of knowledge is enhanced.
This census was conducted only at GP, because the SM transects had been destroyed unexpectedly by illegal relogging
During the year, the company began a relogging
and assay project in conjunction with the NRRI, reassaying much of USX original drill core for precious metals.
The company initiated its first drilling program on the project in August, which will focus on developing an updated geologic model for the project through detailed relogging
of the existing core, and an initial 2,000 meters of new core drilling.
Trend has obtained all available drill-core samples and is conducting a relogging
program, including assays on portions of drill core that have not been previously assayed for PGMs.
core, the team recognized that the highest gold grades were associated with "Kink" zones in the deposit.
