Comments on the geologic information

  • Geologic Description = Six reverse circulation holes were placed over a strong narrow, northeast trending gold-bismuth anomaly (Freeman and others, 1998). The holes were drilled near a 947 ppb and 1,337 ppb gold anomaly. Although altered upper plate rocks were encountered in all of the holes, assays returned only scattered intercepts ranging from 100 to 400 ppb Au.
