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.
Newcrest is now in the process of relogging
the previous diamond and reverse-circulation drill holes to further refine their understanding of the target.
The work program will consist of geologic mapping, relogging
of existing core, and conducting a gravity geophysical survey over a substantial portion of the 6,075-acre property.
Crystal Lake's team was fortunate to recover an extensive amount of historic boxes of core onsite and an ongoing relogging
and resampling program has returned very encouraging results, including 28.7 g/t Au and 3.65 g/t Ag over 0.9 m (207.6m to 298.5m) from 2008 drill hole R08-03 (true width unknown at this time).
The technical elements of the work program will consist of geologic mapping, relogging
of existing Lik core and conducting a gravity geophysical survey over a substantial portion of the 6,075-acre property.
By sharing ULLOs with other learners and relogging
the other learners' ULLOs, the acquisition of knowledge is enhanced.
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.
This census was conducted only at GP, because the SM transects had been destroyed unexpectedly by illegal relogging
. This census also coincided with the next community mast-fruiting event at GP.
& block model analysis of over 24,000m of drilling at Bronze Fox), the acquisition of additional geophysical data (Induced Polarization, gravity & magnetics at both projects) and first phase drilling at ETS since late 2016 under the current technical team has advanced both projects significantly, resulting in new and large geological targets.
