The drill holes reported above were designed to test down plunge and across the Iron Cap deposit. Intervals reported are approximately normal to the strike of the mineralized zone, however hole orientations vary as collar locations are restricted due to topography. Additional drilling is required to confirm this thickness, which is anticipated as development progresses.
Mining iron ore begins at ground level. Taconite is identified by diamond drilling core samples on a grid hundreds of feet into the earth. Taconite rock comprises about 28 percent iron; the rest is sand or silica.
The drill pattern was established to test the continuity of iron formations over a wide area centred on Mt. Asonga. The drill hole spacing varies from approximately 750m to 3,000m over a strike length of approx. 4.5 km and approximately 600m across strike.
