This consisted of surface mapping, trenching, drilling and the driving of adits and cross-cuts. Data from 12,000 metres of trenching, 17,000 metres of drilling and 11,000 metres of underground development was recovered and compiled into a database.
It is, however, interesting to note that when the Company carried out a drilling program of 33 holes in 1998/9, it encountered a number of discrete lenses which yielded intercepts of up to 12 metres at 25.1 g/t Au and 2.3% Cu.
1997 Resource Estimate for Sakdrisi
Bolnisi has reported high-grade gold intercepts from its Sakdrisi project in the former Soviet republic of Georgia. Best intersections include 1m @ 512.5 g/t Au, 12m @ 3.5 g/t Au, 4m @135.3 g/t, and 8m @ 24.9 g/t.
