Methodology, Quality Assurance/Quality Control
Diamond drilling was conducted using a Hydracore 2000 man-portable drill rig minimizing environmental impact. HQ diameter coring was conducted in the oxide, which averages approximately 25 meters deep, followed by NQ2 coring to the bottom of hole. A REFLEX EZ-TRAC multi-shot survey instrument was used for down-hole surveys every 30 meters, and a REFLEX ACT III digital core orientation system was used for core orientation.
Sampling was conducted at 1 meter intervals by sawing the drill core in half with a diamond saw and submitting half core to the Intertek Minerals Limited laboratory in Tarkwa, Ghana for 50g Fire Assay for gold. QA/QC samples, including certified standards, blanks and duplicate samples (1/4 split drill core), were inserted into the drill sample stream at a rate of one in eight samples. The QA/QC results for the assays received to date were within acceptable limits. The laboratory also performed their own internal QA/QC checks, which were also acceptable.
The true thicknesses of the two mineralized drill intercepts reported here are approximately 70% of the drill core length for hole DD21-001 and 65% of core length for hole DD21-002, which were utilized in the creation of an updated vertical longitudinal drill section (Figure 2) of previous and current drill intersections into the Pokukrom West mineralization.
