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).
