The Company has approximately 450 tons of sulphide gold mineralization grading an average of 1.1 oz/ton gold stockpiled on surface. The company is in discussions with an off site refining facility to process this type of mineralization. The processing of sulphide mineralization is different that that of the oxide mineralization which has previously been shipped to the Golden Sunlight Mill sixteen miles away.
Company is now focused on sampling and assaying oxide gold mineralization on Level I. Coronado will continue to mine and stockpile sulphide and gold mineralization from Level II underground.
Assay work was completed by Norris Labs, a local Montana lab using the wet copper iodide A1 precipitation method. Norris Labs is not registered by the International Standards Organization; they are used due to proximity and quick turn around results.
Eugene Larabie, P. Eng. is the "qualified person" overseeing the project. For more information and photos please visit the company's website at www.coronadoresourcesltd.com on the web.
