During site visits to Secret Pass in July 2019, Northern Lights collected 6 rock and selected 11 assay pulps from reverse circulation drill holes TC-10, TC-30, TC-32 and FM-4 (drilled by Santa Fe Pacific Mining between 1984-1986) as part of due diligence verification. All samples were collected by Mr. Alan Morris (CPG, QP) who maintained chain of custody until delivery of the samples to Bureau Veritas-ACME Labs in Elko Nevada for preparation and analysis. Bureau Veritas' facility is accredited to the ISO 9001 standard for gold assays and all analytical methods include quality control materials at set frequencies with established data acceptance criteria.
The rock samples were crushed, split and pulverized to -200 mesh. The drill pulps were sieved and split. Analysis for gold, platinum and palladium was completed using a 30-gram fire assay fusion with ICP-ES finish (FA 330/530) with a lower limit of 2 parts per billion for gold and upper limit of 10000 ppb. Samples with gold assays greater than 10000 ppb are reanalyzed using a 50-gram fire assay fusion with gravimetric finish. All samples also were analyzed using a 36-multielemental geochemical package (AQ300). Sample splits of 0.5 g were leached in hot Aqua Regia and analyzed by ICP-ES with analytical results reported in ppm and ppb levels.
With reference to Table 1, the check assay results provide confirmation within an acceptable range of the historic results for the holes and intervals tested.
