BacTech Environmental Corporation (CNSX:BAC) reports its release on the assay results from its 33-hole sonic drill program on the Snow Lake arsenopyrite stockpile in Snow Lake, Manitoba.
The press release is quoted as saying:
At site, samples were taken every 50 cm, which were shipped to the Saskatchewan Research Council in Saskatoon for fire assaying. A total of 432 samples were generated, of which 236 are to be used for a resource calculation. Given the large number of samples, the Company advises the reader to visit the BacTech website at www.bactechgreen.com to view a complete list of the drill holes and related samples.
It is anticipated that the Company can now complete the National Instrument 43-101 report on the stockpile with these results. In addition, bioleach test work has begun at the Inspectorate lab in Vancouver, B.C. These results should be available in 3 – 4 months.
BacTech’s President and CEO, Ross Orr says:
“We are pleased that the program went smoothly and that the results appear to confirm our understanding of the content of the concentrate stockpile. The good thing about tailings or, in this case, concentrate, is that we can use a sonic drill to obtain samples from the silt-like material. This allowed us to generate 33 holes in roughly 7 days at a fraction of the cost of a normal drill program.”
