Quality Assurance/Quality Control:
Tawsho Mining Inc. is implementing the standard QA/QC protocol for its exploration and diamond drilling of its Whisker Valley Project. NQ core size has been used to provide adequate sample size for each sample being submitted for analysis and if necessary to enable the possibility for undertaking additional petrographic and step-down sampling if required. In the field, core was picked up by one of Tawsho's designated personnel or the driller and transported to a secure Core Shack. During logging, in addition to noting core recovery parameters, geologic attributes including lithology, alteration, quartz veining, presence and identification of sulfide and oxide mineralization along with other geologic parameters normally associated with mineralization were noted and recorded. Core intervals are marked on basis of selected geological parameters, and those intervals showing veining or mineralogical characteristics that may be indicative of mineralization are selected for splitting and assaying. Prior to splitting, all core was photographed and individual sample intervals submitted for analysis were photographed in more detail. Core splitting is done with a diamond core saw and 1/2 of the drill core is submitted to Eastern Analytical Laboratory in Springfield, NL. The remainder of the core is stored on the grounds of Barker's Construction Ltd. adjacent to the Core Shack.
Conventional fire assay sample preparation consists of crushing the selected core sample such that all the crushed material passes -10 mesh (2 mm) screen. This crushed portion is riffle-split to produce an approx. 300 gram sample that in turn is pulverized so that plus 95% of the sample passes 150 mesh (.075mm). This pulverized sample constitutes the pulp sample. The unused (non-pulverized) split portions of the -10 mesh sample are collectively returned and constitute the reject- portion of the sample. From the pulp sample a 30 gram sample is taken for standard fire assay for gold with AA finish. Following completion of fire assaying, a 30 g of the pulp sample is also geochemically analyzed for multi-elements using 4-acid digestion followed by ICP analysis with OES finish (Inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectroscopy). Samples returning gold values over 1 ppm are resubmitted in the lab for fire assay with gravimetric finish. Tawsho inserts gold standard samples, blank samples and duplicate samples into the sample stream at a rate approximating 10% of total number of original samples. Occasional check analyses are conducted by resubmitting the crushed reject as a separate duplicate sample to Eastern Laboratory.
For those samples having high gold values (usually greater than 2ppm or for which visible gold has been observed), the sample rejects were resubmitted for duplicate analysis. The reject portion was completely pulverized and screened. The total plus 150 mesh sample and 30 grams of the minus 150 mesh sample are analyzed separately by fire assay with gravimetric finish and the results weight averaged.
The samples are normally transported by a Tawsho employee from the Property to the analytical laboratory. Chain of custody protocols require signatures and the maintenance of logs and receipts each time the samples are picked up from or delivered to a new location. When utilizing commercial transportation, all shipping sacks are sealed with a numbered tag, the removal of which is recorded upon receipt by Eastern Analytical Laboratory Inc.
