Bates Hunter Gold Mine
Channel Sample Assays | 500 Level – East Drift
On January 21st, February 2nd, and February 26th of 2021, 17 channel samples were cut from the east drift of the 500 level. After adequate utilities and rehabilitation were completed, the drift was cleaned of residual mud and oxidation. Channel samples were cut utilizing a battery-powered angle grinder, chiseled out and collected into sealable sample bags. Additionally, January 21st channel sampling was overseen and guided by Jim A. Paschis to help ensure consistent sampling.
Samples were cut and collected where vein was visible and accessible, heading east from the 500 Level station towards the Becker-Bates shaft. ~6 feet spacing was followed between channels; however, due to faulting and overhead lagging from stopes, there are sections where samples could not be taken. All the samples were cut from the back, which is overhead. Channels were cut perpendicular to the vein with the exception of one sample, BH500E-010, which was a whole sample of the vein that protruded from the surrounding alteration and host rock.
The samples were sent to Hazen Research, Inc. in Golden, Colorado on March 1st, 2021; where fire assay analysis with gravimetric finish was performed. Results of the analyses are presented in Table 1, from Analytical Report 21M01378.
