Drill hole PRH12241 intercepted 19m @ 0.53% copper within the sulphide zone. Located approximately 50m outside the southern perimeter of the current open pit design, mineralization remains open in this direction.
(3) South Eastern Zone
Drill hole PRH12200 has returned an oxide gold intercept from surface of 32m @ 0.44 g/t gold (incl. 10m @ 0.67 g/t gold). This drill hole is located on the southeastern perimeter of the current open pit design, where further drilling will be required outside the current pit with the potential to increase the overall gold resources.
Quality Assurance / Quality Control ("QA/QC")
Drill core from the diamond and reverse circulation (RC) drill holes are transported by Pershimco technical personnel from the drill site to the core and sample preparation facility on site. Once there, geologists and qualified technicians log, sample tag and half-split the core in 1 meter lengths using stationary saws. Individual sampled meter intervals of split core and RC chips are then put in tagged and sealed plastic bags with a standard, duplicate and blank inserted at regular intervals. The prepared samples are then sent to the Activation Laboratories (Actlabs) sample preparation facilities in Panama. Individual samples are inventoried by Actlabs personnel, dried, finely crushed to 70% at less than 2 mm, then pulverized to 85% at less than 75 um, and riffle-split to 150 grams. Prepared samples are then placed into sealed 5-gallon plastic containers and shipped by courier services to the Activation Laboratories main facilities in Ancaster (Ontario, Canada) for assaying using a multi-element ICP method and fire assay method with atomic absorption finish for Gold, Silver and Copper. Over limit assays are done on samples with results greater than to 2.5 g/t. The new protocol also includes that samples be dried at 125 degree Fahrenheit just before crushing and also immediately before pulverizing.
