Drill core is logged and split (all by saw) on site with crushed half core being dispatched to, and assayed by accredited laboratory ALS–Chemex in Townsville, Australia.

Thirty duplicate samples re-split from remaining crushed samples from a selection of KVD diamond drill holes from the last 12 months have been sent for gold assay at ALS Townsville. In addition, pulps from this duplicate assaying will be sent to Genalysis Townsville to further check gold assay.
