John Nicholson, Chief Geologist of Touchstone Gold Limited, is a qualified person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 and prepared or reviewed the preparation of the scientific and technical information in this news release with respect to the assay results from the drilling program. Mr. Nicholson has a B.Sc. from the University of British Columbia, is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and has been an accredited member of the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists since 1992. Mr. Nicholson has verified the data disclosed in this release, including the sampling, analytical and test data underlying the information presented. Verification included a review and validation of the applicable assay databases and reviews of assay certificates.
The core samples were split by diamond saw, and half of the core was sampled. Core samples were prepared by Acme Analytical Laboratories ("ACME") in Medellin and were assayed at ACME in Vancouver, British Columbia. All samples then undergo analyses by method 1Dx2 where a 15 g split is leached in hot Aqua Regia and then analyzed by ICP-MS for 36 elements including Au. The larger 15 g split of the samples was chosen in order to give a more representative analysis of elements subject to nugget effect (e.g. Au). Method G601, 30 g lead collection fire assay, was performed on analyzed drill core samples with greater than 5 g/t Au from the ICP analyses. An automatic over limit analysis (G6Gr), 30 g lead collection fire assay with gravimetric finish, was performed on assayed drill core with greater than 10 g/t Au from the 30 g fire assay. Blank, standard and duplicate samples were routinely inserted for quality assurance and quality control.
