Comments

Comment (Reserve-Resource): MATRIX GRADES AND TONNAGES ARE BASED ON WET TONNES THERE ARE THREE SETS OF COSTS; ORIGINAL 1975 COSTS, COSTS UPDATED FROM 1975 TO 1979, AND COMPLETELY RECOSTED 1979 COSTS. DEPOSIT LIFE IS 77 YEARS AT A PRODUCTION RATE OF 2670000 TONNES PER YEAR. THE MILL CAPACITY CAN BE INCREASED TO SHORTEN THE LIFE, OR OTHER MILLS CAN BE ADDED SUBSE- QUENTLY OR CONCURRENTLY AND OPERATED FOR 25 YEARS AND 27 YEARS, RESPECTIVELY, IN ADDITION TO THE CURRENT MILL WHICH WOULD OPERATE FOR 25 YEARS.

Comment (Reserve-Resource): MATRIX GRADES AND TONNAGES WERE DERIVED FROM BUMINES DRILL HOLE INFORMATION AND USGS GEOLOGICAL DATA. SEE IDAHO PAMPH. 109, P. 7. MATRIX TONNAGE AND GRADE FIGURES WERE DERIVED FROM IDAHO PAMPHLET-109. THE FIGURES HAVE BEEN MULTIPLIED BY THE APPROPRIATE CONVERSIONS TO ACCOUNT FOR METRIC TONNES AND MOISTURE CONTENT. THE SIO2 AND LOI ANALYSIS ARE ESTIMATES.
