QA/QC Process

For the sample results reported in this release the Company’s QA-QC protocol consists of collection of field grab samples which were delivered by Company personnel directly to AGAT. AGAT received, recorded and tracked all samples. All samples were assayed at AGAT Laboratories Ltd. (“AGAT”) in Sudbury Ontario.

AGAT is accredited to ISO 17025 by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC). Subsequent to drying, crushing grinding as required, the samples are analysed by lead fusion fire assay with Atomic Absorption Spectroscopy (AAS) finish. PerkinElmer A Analyst 400 AAS instruments ae used in the analysis. All samples undergo standard fire assay analysis for gold and some samples are processed using ICPOES (Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectroscopy) analysis for 33 additional elements. Prepared samples, sample replicates, duplicates and internal reference materials (both aqueous and geochemical standards) are routinely used as part of AGAT’s quality assurance program.
