Sampling and QA/QC
All core samples were split in half, placed into plastic bags, labeled with sample number, closed with zip ties, and placed in rice sacks by Aztec Minerals. Samples were typically collected in 2.0m intervals with occasional exceptions of 1.5 or 3.0m intervals. Blanks, duplicates, and certified standards were inserted into the sample stream and subsequently reviewed without any outliers or abnormal results. The samples were delivered to Bureau Veritas Laboratories in Hermosillo and analyzed for gold using a 30gram sample by fire assay fusion with AAS finish. Samples were shipped to Vancouver and analyzed with a 0.25gram sample using 4-acid ICP-MS providing analysis on 45 elements.
