Cardinal clarifies Namdini drilling descriptions
CARDINAL RESOURCES Ltd. is issuing this press release to clarify its disclosure on the Namdini gold project. The company wishes to clarify the description of drill intersections highlighted in the company’s press releases dated Aug. 9 and Aug. 22, 2017.
In the press releases, the company disclosed a series of individual weighted average grade mineralized intercepts which were derived using a common industry guideline. The company defined a mineralized intercept to include a minimum of three consecutive metres of 0.5 gram per tonne gold separated by no more than three consecutive metres of internal dilution at less than 0.5 g/t gold.
Once the individual intercepts were established for each hole, they were added up in schedule 1 and the grade was averaged without the inclusion of any material below a cut-off grade of less than 0.5 g/t gold. The company wishes to clarify that these total aggregate mineralized intervals do not represent continuous weighted-average intercepts. The company understands that this presentation methodology may have caused confusion in the market therefore it withdraws this method of disclosure.
The company believes that this press release now clarifies the readers understanding.
This press release was issued as a result of a review by the Ontario Securities Commission and Australian regulators.
