Bates Hunter Gold Mine
Channel Sample Assays | 500 Level – East Drift
On March 31st and April 2nd of 2021, 9 channel samples were cut from the remaining accessible areas with visible vein in the back/rib of the 500-level east drift, finishing the channel sampling on the 500-level east drift. 2 additional channel samples were taken from the Rainbow Stope, the closest stope to the Becker-Bates shaft where 2 grab samples assayed at 5.95 and 11.7 opt of gold. Channel samples were cut utilizing a battery-powered angle grinder, chiseled out and collected into sealable sample bags. One grab sample from the sump muck being removed from the 730 level was dried and sent for assay as well.
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.
A majority of the channels were taken from the back, whilst some were upper rib channels due either to deviation of the vein or the drift being driven off-vein originally. The 2 channel samples of the Rainbow Stope preceded the bulk sample blasting and give insight into the grade of the bulk sample taken.
The samples were sent to Hazen Research, Inc. in Golden, Colorado on April 12th, 2021; where fire assay analysis with gravimetric finish was performed. Results of the analyses were received April 19th, 2021 and are presented in Table 1, from Analytical Report 21M01656.
