5/21/20 | Super Sacks
On the 13th of May, 2020 sampling continued from our stockpile of Super Sacks which contain material pulled out of the 240ft level of the Bates Hunter Mine. Our stockpile to date is at about 302 tons or 193 Super Sacks.
Material consisted of muck, remnant vein ore and altered wall rock material. Bags are not consistent or representative of what future ore values could be but could represent a snapshot of currently available material for milling.
Samples were selected in a “Grab Sample” type fashion to attempt at sampling each super sack as equally and most representative of that bag.
Samples were sent to Hazen Research, Inc. in Golden, Colorado who performed fire assay analysis with gravimetric finish. Results presented in Table 1.0 are from Analytical Report 20M01828
*SSS: Super Sack Sample
* You may notice a few sample numbers are missing and that is due to the inability to read labels because of exposure to sun which has bleached any ink or because the sampler could not safely access a label.
