Orientation of
data in relation to
geological structure
Whether the orientation of sampling achieves unbiased
sampling of possible structures and the extent to which
this is known, considering the deposit type.
If the relationship between the drilling orientation and the
orientation of key mineralised structures is considered to
have introduced a sampling bias, this should be assessed
and reported if material.
ISABEL NICKEL PROJECT
The nickel laterite is a weathered
geomorphic surface drape over
underlying ultramafic source units.
All holes and pits were vertical and
will be 100% true intersection.
3D logging in the walls of an excavator
trench indicated dip of marker units
varied from 0 to 5 degrees – and any dips
related to terrain slope.
WEST GUADALCANAL PROJECT
Most long trenches are oriented north-
south as mapping has shown that
this is the optimal orientation for the
overall mineralised trend. Some smaller
east-west oriented trenches completed
to specifically target smaller lower order
structures having closer to north-south
orientation.
The lack of reliable core orientation
data has meant that any bias has yet
to be established. Drilling is planned
to intersect the target as normal to the
predicted orientation of the structure
as possible.
Sample security
The measures taken to ensure sample security.
ISABEL NICKEL PROJECT
All samples were escorted offsite to a
secure locked facility at the site camp.
Onsite security was provided for in
transit samples.
Chain of custody protocols were in place
for transport from laboratories.
WEST GUADALCANAL PROJECT
A chain of custody procedure is
implemented by the company from site
to Intertek Honiara.
Audits or reviews
The results of any audits or reviews of sampling techniques
and data.
ISABEL NICKEL PROJECT
No audits have been undertaken.
WEST GUADALCANAL PROJECT
No audits have been undertaken.
