* Intervals shown are mineralized lengths of core; all cut across bedding but fold geometry is not well enough understood to reliably calculate true widths. Based on core axis to bedding angles, true widths are estimated to be 70 to 90% of the interval lengths.

** This interval was previously announced as a partial result (see October 19, 2009 news release)

*** Multiple oxide and sulphide intervals occur within the mineralized zone.

**** No recovery internals assigned zero value.


Gold determinations were carried out at ALS Chemex in North Vancouver, B.C. where samples were fine crushed before a 250 gram split was pulverized to better than 85% passing 75 microns. The pulverizing circuit was cleaned with quartz sand twice between samples. Splits of the pulverized fraction were routinely dissolved in aqua regia and analyzed for 49 elements using inductively coupled plasma (ICP) together with mass spectrometry (MS) or atomic emission spectroscopy (AES). Gold analyses were by the Au-AA26 procedure that involves fire assay preparation using a 50 gram charge with an atomic absorption spectroscopy finish.

Rigorous procedures are in place regarding sample collection, chain of custody and data entry. Certified assay standards, duplicate samples and blanks are routinely inserted into the sample stream to ensure integrity of the assay process.
