B2 reports that the trench results continue to show good potential to develop an open pit gold resource at Pavon Norte, where a total of 42 trenches have now been dug. B2 continues to take large bulk samples for metallurgical tests.
B2 has completed a Lidar (“LIght Detection And Ranging”) survey at Trebol. An area of 225km(2) was flown using helicopter mounted Lidar equipment flying at 400m altitude. The raw Lidar data is currently being processed. Once complete, the processing will yield a highly accurate topographic base map, and should allow the geologists to locate faults more easily as well as other topographic anomalies for follow-up.
Activities in July are focusing on trenching the northernmost anomalies at Trebol to assess the potential strike length of gold mineralization there, with plans for future drilling to assess the resource potential. Some 500 samples were recently shipped from Trebol to B2′s Limon mine laboratory for preparation.
