The 2013 Kaburi RC drilling program totaled 3,103 metres of RC drilling, in 33 holes, laid out in a 5 fence pattern designed to target the interpreted northwest-southeast and east-west structural mineralization trends the Company had identified through 2012 geochemical sampling programs. The drilling covered approximately 800 metres of strike length within the 2x4 km Seer gold-in-soil anomaly as defined by the Company during its 2012 exploration work and served to provide proof to the existence of a lode gold system associated with the Aurora-Gem Creek Regional Shear similar in nature to Troy Resources neighbouring Omai-Hicks-Kaburi Corridor Deposits of Smarts and Hicks. Given the recent acquisition of Azimuth Resources by Troy Resources management determined that moving forward with the drill campaign as quickly as possibly was pertinent to the creation of optimal value for stakeholders of the Kaburi PL asset, as both the Smart and Hicks deposits are planned for production within the next four years. The Company also is of the opinion that additional ounces will be required to ensure a long term and profitable operations in the West Omai Region and hopes to contribute to the ongoing development through this discovery. Given the location of the long intervals containing gold mineralization as seen in holes 13, 25, and 32 a mineralization trend(s) has been identified and remains open along strike, a more focused follow-up drilling program is now warranted and Company management expects a substantially higher hit ratio from any such program that in turn will define additional zones of potentially mineable material.
All samples collected during the Kaburi 2013 Drill program were analyzed by Acme Analytical Labs of Vancouver, B.C., utilizing a 50 gram G6 fire assay finish for gold. All samples were collected by Tajiri geological personnel and shipped to Acme Analytical Labs preparation facility in Georgetown, Guyana, where samples were sorted and crushed to appropriate particle size (pulp) and representatively split to a smaller size for shipment to Acme's Vancouver and/or Santiago, Chile analysis facilities. RC samples were collected and catalogued on 1 metre intervals at the Kaburi drill site and shipped to ACME's Georgetown preparation facility as such. At the Company's direction, certain sections of the 2013 RC drilling sampling were composited into 2 metre samples intervals for final assay. A system of standards, blanks and duplicates sampling was implemented in the 2013 drilling program and monitored by Company management throughout the program.
Due to the high grades of gold reported from the 2013 Kaburi drilling program, a comprehensive coarse metallic screening study is currently underway to better constrain the high gold grades encountered during this program. Additionally, selected high grade composited intervals returned from first pass analyses will be subject to individual assays from the maintained "B-Splits" to more accurately ascertain gold grades. Germane data from these studies will be released as it becomes available.
