Key points

As­say re­sults have been re­ceived for 165 un­der­ground drill holes to­talling 127,720 feet (38,929.1 me­tres). This drilling fo­cused pri­mar­ily on in­creas­ing the con­fi­dence level in the cur­rent min­eral re­source es­ti­mate, as well as ex­tend­ing min­er­al­iza­tion to the north, south and updip. As­say re­sults con­tinue to sup­port high-grade min­er­al­iza­tion con­ti­nu­ity along strike and ver­ti­cally.


Drilling con­tin­ued to test the north­ern and downdip ex­ten­sions of veins 31, Honeyrun­ner and Karen from the north­ern most por­tion of the mine work­ings. Re­sults show high grades and wide drilled widths of­fer­ing an op­por­tu­nity for fu­ture bulk-ton­nage min­ing. Con­tin­u­ous min­er­al­iza­tion on mul­ti­ple veins has been ex­tended to the north along strike by ap­prox­i­mately 750 feet (228.6 me­tres) and 500 feet (152.4 m) downdip.


The updip drilling along Joyce, Joyce Splay, Karen, Honeyrun­ner and Vein 21 has re­turned sig­nif­i­cant as­say re­sults along a cu­mu­la­tive strike of ap­prox­i­mately 1,000 feet (304.8 m). Min­er­al­iza­tion has been ex­tended updip above the ex­ist­ing mine work­ings by 50 to 200 feet (15.2 to 61.0 m). As­says sug­gest min­er­al­iza­tion con­tin­ues with sim­i­lar grades and widths to what has tra­di­tion­ally been mined along th­ese veins.


The drilling to the south­west has shown a clus­ter of sig­nif­i­cant as­says on pre­vi­ously known and un­known veins. Th­ese veins are ap­prox­i­mately 200 feet (61.0 m) from cur­rent mine work­ings and will be an area of fo­cus in the 2018 drill pro­gram.

As­says were per­formed by ALS Global of Reno, Nev., and Amer­i­can As­say Lab­o­ra­to­ries of Sparks, Nev., as di­rected un­der the su­per­vi­sion of Klon­dex staff. Th­ese or­ga­ni­za­tions are ISO 17025-ac­cred­ited in­de­pen­dent lab­o­ra­to­ries.
