“Our drilling angle was completely wrong.” Kiril Mugerman on StockPulse
Read an important excerpt from our recent interview with StockPulse, published December 20th 2019.
ALLAN BARRY: That’s a pretty major discovery for you to go from sub-vertical to sub-horizontal.
KIRIL MUGERMAN: Correct.
KIRIL MUGERMAN: What does it mean for us? First of all, volumes are easier to add up when everything is horizontal than vertical, drilling-wise. Second, our drilling angle was completely wrong. All the drill holes that we drilled in November and December are all vertical.
ALLAN BARRY: And this is why people like ANDRE GAUMOND and others are so thorough about their exploration efforts. It can change things on a dime.
KIRIL MUGERMAN: Yes, and I have school friends working for majors now who swear by trenching. A good trench can answer 50 questions, while a drill hole will answer one question and pose another 50!
KIRIL MUGERMAN: Drilling vertical holes is key. With an angle hole, you can easily drill in underneath the stacks without hitting almost any mineralization. Whereas, if you are drilling vertically then you will always hit your mineralization wherever your horizon is present.
KIRIL MUGERMAN: Think about that. With an angle hole, you can easily go and drill underneath the stacks without hitting almost any mineralization. When you’re drilling vertical, you’re always hit your mineralization wherever your horizon is present.
KIRIL MUGERMAN: On our website, we have a summary of all the drill results from last year. Those are angled holes.
KIRIL MUGERMAN: What is 120 metres of 0.34% Cu? Well, it included horizons of, say, thirty metres of 0.6% Cu. And then deeper another 20 metres of 0.6% Cu. Then sometimes it would be 60 metres-70 metres of 0.5% Cu.
