Bates Hunter Mine Assay Results
Sampling conducted – 2/28/19
Cut Sample Assay work
In February of 2019 two cut samples were taken from the 163 level at the face of the westerly drift. Both samples taken were from an easily and safely accessible location for a two-person crew to cut out of the drift face. The cut samples were for practice purposes in determining a more representative ore grade for a mineable dimension. Practice was over seen and introduced by Jim Paschis who has his M.S. in Geology from Colorado School of Mines as well as multiple decades of underground mining experience.
Samples were sent to Hazen Research, Inc. in Golden, Colorado who performed fire assay analysis with gravimetric finish. Results presented in Table 1.0 are from Analytical Report 19M01374.
Tools used to obtain these cut samples include hammer and chisel, electric grinder, sample bags and appropriate personal protective equipment. These samples are the fifth set of samples taken by the current operator of the Bates-Hunter mine, BH Mining Company.
Sample 1: 163-006: 13 ft to the west on the face of the drift. The first cut sample was 32” wide by 1” tall and 1” deep at about the breast level of the face.
Sample 2: 163-006H: 13 ft to the west on face of the drift. The second cut sample was only representative for the heart of vein body spanning 4” wide by 1” deep and 1” tall, just above the other cut sample.
Near-term planned work includes additional samples to be taken from the 240-foot level. Mineralized material located in fill and easily accessible vein remnants is being gathered as it becomes safely accessible for bulk sample analysis to include metallurgical recovery and mineral processing properties.
