Sample Preparation, Analyses and Security

All drill cores are BQ in size and assays are completed on split half-cores, with the second half kept for future reference. The samples were then analyzed using standard fire assay procedures with AA finish at Swastika Laboratories of Swastika, Ontario. When visible gold is observed in the core, both pulp and metallic assays are requested. In addition to the standard quality control of the laboratory, a blank sample is inserted in every shipment of 20 samples for quality control purposes. The blank is used to detect any possible contamination at the laboratory.

Cline Mining Corporation is a mine development company focused on the exploration and development of gold in Canada, uranium and iron-ore in Madagascar and metallurgical coal in Canada for the international seaborne coal trade market.
