In addition to historical drilling and underground sampling data that could be verified, the Novoveska Huta resource estimate incorporates 17 diamond drill holes totaling 8,897 metres drilled by Tournigan between 2006 and 2011. These holes comprise 7 twin holes drilled to verify historical drill holes, 2 twin holes drilled to verify data from the historic shaft, 2 exploration holes drilled into the western block and 6 step-out holes (of which 5 were completed) that were drilled to explore and extend the deposit to the east.Historical data at Novoveska Huta were compiled during Slovakia’s communist period. They comprise 106 surface drill holes (of which 38 were used in this resource estimate), 371 underground holes and 5.5 Km of underground development from which were taken 2,081 radiometric channel samples. Only data which could be verified and had backup of hardcopy stamped original documents were used in the resource estimation. Data verification was reviewed by Tetra Tech, Inc. The data base comprises eU % (gamma) for historic holes and U % (chemical assay) for Tournigan holes. Tournigan carried out closed-can analysis at Energy Lab, USA, to confirm that there are no disequilibrium issues between radiometric gamma and chemical assays.
