CC19-06 was drilled downdip of CC19-02, the latter having ended in mineralization.
The first orientation drill hole, PDRC263, drilled in an easterly direction at Target 2, encountered pegmatite 'downdip' of the outcrop from which the 17 rock chips containing spodumene returned assays between 1.65% and 3.70% Li2O (See Table 1 for drill hole locations and Figure 2 in link below).
From this data, we look forward to designing a comprehensive exploration program for both vein- and disseminated-type gold mineralization, which will include geochemical and geophysical surveys, to identify additional high priority drill targets along strike and downdip.
Results of underground drilling continuously extended the major mineralized vein structures along strike and downdip and exploration tunneling exposed high grade mineralization zones within major production vein structures.
Some fine-grained sandstone layers display sigmoidal-like stratification (F12A) characterized by foresets that thin and flat downdip and updip into tangential bottomsets and topsets.
The strata offshore are known only by extrapolation downdip from the onshore, and from one borehole offshore Quebec in the vicinity of New Brunswick's jurisdiction (Bradelle L-49, Fig.
In this case, presence of highly viscous oil near the oil/water contact has forced production from updip and would be a serious obstacle for downdip water injection due to mobility difference [1].
The major reason for well failure is its location as it was drilled downdip making it unsuccessful.
Silvercorp Metals reports that a 23,000-m drilling program at its LM West and LM silver mines in the Ying Mining District, Henan province, China during the first half of 2012 substantially extended the downdip and striking extensions of previously defined mineralized zones within some major vein structures.
AASE-10X was spudded on December 13, 2011 and is located on the central western flank of the AASE field, downdip of the AASE-4X producer.
Pearson commented: 'The Titan 24 Survey, coupled with our drill results to date, confirms that the mineralized structure at Hope Brook is very extensive both along strike and downdip. This survey combined with Castillian's detailed IP surveys has outlined a number of targets for future drilling.
The Bucaramanga nest occurs on the downdip continuation of the Panama arc and may reflect ongoing breakoff of oceanic crust from the Panama arc block that has become impeded in the zone of shallow subduction.
