Please see the Drill Hole Assay Tables for further information of drilling at Bald Mountain. A 2016-2017 drill program was completed looking to expand upon the initial discovery made in 2013. This drilling did not return any significant results
The work completed to date and the data available are insufficient to determine the length, width, or continuity of the mineralization. Gold Standard has not performed any preliminary economic assessment or other study of the Bald Mountain target and these metallurgical results do not constitute and must not be construed as an economic analysis of the potential viability of the Bald Mountain target.
Drill Hole Assay Tables*
*The gold intervals reported in these assay tables are based on a 0.14 gpt Au cut-off. Weighted averaging has been used to calculate all reported intervals. The reported gold intervals may, or may not represent true thicknesses and, or widths. In general, the gold distribution within these large, complex breccia bodies tends to be irregular and will require additional drilling to establish true widths. Sampling Methodology, Chain of Custody, Quality Control and Quality Assurance: All sampling was conducted under the supervision of the Company’s project geologists and the chain of custody from the project to the sample preparation facility was continuously monitored. A blank or certified reference material was inserted approximately every tenth sample. The North Dark Star core and RC samples were delivered to Bureau Veritas Mineral Laboratories preparation facility in Elko, NV. The samples are crushed, pulverized and sample pulps are shipped to Bureau Veritas certified laboratory in Sparks, NV or Vancouver, BC. Pulps are digested and analyzed for gold using fire assay fusion and an atomic absorption spectroscopy (AAS) finish on a 30-gram split. All other elements are determined by ICP analysis. Data verification of the analytical results includes a statistical analysis of the standards and blanks that must pass certain parameters for acceptance to insure accurate and verifiable results.
