2014 Annual Report
Criteria
JORC Code explanation
Commentary
Verification of
sampling and
assaying
The verification of significant intersections by either
independent or alternative company personnel.
The use of twinned holes.
Documentation of primary data, data entry procedures, data
verification, data storage (physical and electronic) protocols.
Discuss any adjustment to assay data.
ISABEL NICKEL PROJECT
Five core holes twinned existing INCO
or Kaiser Engineers pits.
One Axiom core hole was twinned by
an additional NQ triple tube core hole
1m offset.
An additional Axiom core hole was
twinned by a PQ triple tube core hole
2m offset for metallurgical studies.
WEST GUADALCANAL PROJECT
Significant intersections are prepared
by the company’s Competent Person.
No twinned holes.
No verification of significant intervals
reported from the trenching.
No adjustment to assay data; except
assays below lower level of detection (LLD)
reported as half the value of the LLD.
Location of data
points
Accuracy and quality of surveys used to locate drill holes
(collar and down-hole surveys), trenches, mine workings and
other locations used in mineral Resource estimation.
Specification of the grid system used.
Quality and adequacy of topographic control.
ISABEL NICKEL PROJECT
Initial collar location was by handheld
GPS reading to 5m accuracy.
WEST GUADALCANAL PROJECT
All drill hole collars are located using
a Garmin handheld GPS unit with an
accuracy to ±10m. They will eventually
be located using a differential GPS.
Downhole surveys are takenusing a
downhole Reflex survey tool and recorded
on the drillers’ log. Dip, magnetic declination
andmagnetic intensity are recorded.
All surface sample locations surveyed
using handheld Garmin GPS with
accuracy ±10m.
Trenches surveyed from handheld
GPS start point using tape and
compass. This level of accuracy is
deemed sufficient in the early stages
of the project.
Data spacing and
distribution
Data spacing for reporting of Exploration Results.
Whether the data spacing and distribution is sufficient
to establish the degree of geological and grade continuity
appropriate for the mineral Resource and Ore Reserve
estimation procedure(s) and classifications applied.
Whether sample compositing has been applied.
ISABEL NICKEL PROJECT
Holes were designed along a single
traverse based on:
––
INCO pitting and drilling
––
Kaiser Engineers pitting
––
INCO bulk test mining
––
INCO defined mineralised area.
WEST GUADALCANAL PROJECT
Trench sampling undertaken as
continuous cut channels with samples
aggregated overmeasured 0.5m, 1.0m
or 2.0m intervals.
All trenches and drill hole collar locations
are surveyed in coordinate system
UTM_WGS84_Zone 57S.
Lower cut-off intervals derived from
assay cut-off of 0.1 g/t Au and 1.0 g/t
Ag, minimum width of 0.5m, maximum
internal dilution of 1m.
Upper cut-off intervals derived from
assay cut-off of 1.0 g/t Au and 10.0 g/t
Ag, minimum width of 0.5m, maximum
internal dilution of 1m.
