While there were some initial delays experienced in testing assays, the process is expected to be completed within 10 days.
Sampling to test continuity of mineralisation
Anson’s sampling program at Gold Bar Unit 2 aims to confirm that the supersaturated brines in the Long Canyon area were continuous to the north.
The company is also looking to confirm that they are contained within the other clastic horizons.
In addition, the sampling program aimed to identify if the five minerals, including lithium, boron, iodine and bromine continued from the southern section of the project area.
Brine sampling is to establish JORC resource
This brine sampling program is part of the exploration program that is required to prove a JORC compliant resource.
This exploration program will continue until December 2018.
The JORC resource is required for the feasibility study that needs to be completed to obtain funding for a large-scale production plant.
