The fractal model could be applied for defining sulfidic mineralized zones, especially high accumulation of sulfide minerals from the wall rocks
, or from the background, based on data obtained from IP/RS exploration.
This alteration type commonly occurs as replacements of wall rock
adjacent to early stage quartz-pyrite-fluorite [+ or -] hubnerite [+ or -] sphalerite veins and represents a greisen type of alteration.
In this method, wall rock
has to be cut to make operation space.
No evaluation of possible larger scale open pit mining of lower grade material including the high grade shoots, their lower grade portions, stockworks of small veinlets, and intervening low grade, but extensively altered wall rock
These consisted of grab samples of quartz veins and enclosing wall rocks
left in piles next to the workings by the artisanal miners.
As previously reported, the first round of sampling over the mineralized zone on the property included 79 samples of jasperoid and siliceous wall rocks
discontinuously exposed over about three quarters of a mile of strike length.
2 g/t Au in narrow veins while granitic wall rocks
The first round of sampling included 79 samples of jasperoid and siliceous wall rocks
discontinuously exposed over about three quarters of a mile of strike length, assays of which averaged almost 6 ounces of silver per ton.
Radius' historic sampling indicates that the veins and their oxidized wall rocks
have the potential to host significant gold mineralization.
Samples Z-3 and Z-4 were taken from the wall rocks
adjacent to the main Solaga vein.
These consist of grab samples of quartz veins and enclosing wall rocks
, and also of rejects brought to the surface by artisinal miners.
A key finding was that, as suspected, significant gold values continue into the wall rocks
of the veins opening up potential for a bulk tonnage target.
