Comments

Comment (Production): QEENSTAKE SHIPPED 7,633 ST OF FLUX GRADING 0.32 OZ/ST AU TO THE HIDALGO SMELTER IN THE FIRST HALF OF 1990 IN 1989, QUEENSTAKE COMPLETED A DRILLING PROGRAM ON THE GOLD PRINCE MINE PROPERTY (0040030144). FURTHER RESEARCH SHOULD BE UNDERTAKEN TO DETERMINE WHETHER THE DOS CABEZAS AND GOLD PRINCE PROPERTIES SHOULD BE COMBINED IN THE MAS DATA BASE INTO A SINGLE PROPERTY.
