About Falcon Gold Corp.
Falcon Gold Corp. is a Canadian mineral exploration company focused on generating, acquiring, and exploring mining opportunities in the Americas. Falcon is focussed on exploring its 100% owned Washington Silver project located in the historic Republic Mining District, northeastern Washington, USA, and is actively evaluating additional exploration opportunities. Falcon's 2012 drill results demonstrate the high grade potential of the Washington Silver project with an intersection of 167 grams per tonne (g/t) Ag over 36.5 metres (m) including a high grade intercept of 511.57 g/t Ag and 0.83 g/t Gold (Au) over 9.14 m. The Company is reviewing its 2013 exploration plans for this project and subject to financing intends to recommence exploration activities in the approaching spring/summer field season.
Sampling and QA/QC
Diamond drill core is logged by qualified geological staff on site at the Burton Gold Property. Upon completion of geological and geotechnical logging, the core for sampling and assaying is transported by Company personnel to the Falcon offices in Sudbury Ontario. The core is cut using a diamond saw. One half of the sample is bagged with a sample identification tag. The remaining half sample is returned to the core box with the corresponding sample tag and is archived, in a secure facility, in Sudbury. Samples are delivered by Company personnel to Agat Laboratories in Sudbury. Upon receipt at Agat Laboratories, the samples are dried, weighed and are crushed to 90% passing 2 mm. A 250 gram riffle split of the crushed sample is pulverized to 85% passing 75 microns. Au concentration is determined on all samples from a 30 gram split of the pulverized sample by Fire Assay with Atomic Absorption finish.
Falcon Gold uses quality assurance and quality control ("QA/QC") procedures that include the analyses and evaluation of Certified Reference Materials and blank samples as well as the routine analysis of duplicate samples.
