Evaluation of Old Tailings 1982

In February of 1982 a report was prepared by Jean Depatie (B.A., M.Sc.) for Boville Resources Ltd. The document is entitled “Preliminary Report on the Evaluation of Old Tailings at Montauban, Quebec.

The study focused on tailings which came from the first period of mining in the region (between 1914 and 1944), of the Montauban lead-zinc-silver deposit. It goes on to mention that in 1960, Ghislau Mining Corporation processed a 24,000 pound bulk sample of the tailings (or 2000 short tons) in Quebec City. The bulk sample gave the following results.

Key points of this study;
      •    property easily accessible by a paved road
      •    property is only 6 miles away by road to a railway
      •    estimate average silver (Ag) grade of 2.42 oz/ton (or 75,26 g/t)
      •    estimate average gold (Au) grade of 0.0416 oz/ton (or 1,29 g/t)
