SOIL SAMPLING RESULTS: The -80 mesh soil grid has been expanded to cover an area measuring approximately 2km by 1.5km with a sample spacing at 25m x 100m. Image enhancement of the soil data for gold and silver (Figures 3 and 4) shows coincident anomalies associated with known structures and provides strong evidence for extension of the vein systems.
