Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QA/QC)

Rigorous controls are in place to ensure the traceability of samples and their results. Upon delivery core is prepped and logged with intervals of interest and/or mineralization marked for sampling. The core is subsequently photographed prior to cutting. Half the core is retained for future reference and the remaining half placed in double poly bags and sealed for shipment. Samples are delivered to ALS Chemex in Fairbanks, AK where they are dried, crushed, and representative splits are transported to ALS Chemex labs in either Reno, NV or Vancouver, BC for assay. ALS Chemex complies with the requirements for the International Standards ISO 9001:2000 and ISO 17025:1999. Analysis includes Fire Assay with gravimetric finish for gold and ICP for 33 other elements. Gold assays results greater than 5 ppm are automatically re-submitted for screen metallic analysis. 

QA/QC is verified using external standards, blanks, and duplicates with 13% of all samples submitted being QA/QC check samples. Results are examined ensuring control samples fall within 2.5 standard deviations of certified values. Failed results are re-analyzed by the lab and/or additional samples from the remaining core are submitted for analysis.
