“The results show that aside from high grade typical veins, we also have wider, bulkier veins that are amenable to higher volume mining methods. So we’ve got a mix, basically, of extremely high grade, narrower veins and wider average-to-good veins. The results are consistent with the large mine next door, the Rice Lake Mine; it’s just that the Hinge Mine has only been developed in the last year or so, so it’s relatively new.
“We’re extremely pleased both with the consistency of the results and that they’re proving that our Hinge deposit goes deep. We expected this, but now we’re seeing it proved out.”
