Peter Sandstone, as with all the other units discussed in this report, not all surface exposures
of the formation shown on the Figure maps and in Plate 1 are suitable for frac sand mining.

dating of boulders from Central Asian moraines.
Phase II drilling will be angle holes to accurately reflect the true thickness of the target units as well as their relationship with surface exposures
noted during the recent detail mapping.
The results of the survey indicated a large surface exposure
of enrichment in high levels of both gold and silver was evident following testing with the Niton pXRF, a hand-held tool used by geologists to X-ray materials to determine if there is evidence of specific mineralization.
In addition, the samples were subjected to extended leaching times in ceramic vessels containing ceramic grinding media, resulting in enhanced surface exposure
of the rock sample to the leaching chemicals.
is excellent and there were numerous workings at various elevations that can be roughly traced from one elevation to another.
At Amazing Grace, southeast of Castlegar, British Columbia, the exploration target is an extensive surface exposure
of gold-bearing veins and altered wall rock that holds the potential for a bulk-tonnage open-pit gold operation.
Bulk-Tonnage Open-Pit Target - Medallion believes that the Amazing Grace surface exposure
of gold-bearing veins and altered wall rock holds the potential for a significant, easily accessible bulk-tonnage open-pit gold target.
Two mine levels (adits) were excavated to explore the vein, at approximately 20 meters and 50 meters below the surface exposure
In its surface exposure
, the vein is typically 18 to 24 inches wide; however, reports of underground thickness indicate widths in excess of 4 feet and up to 6 feet.
Both holes intersected stockworks sections indicating that the surface exposure
extends at least 150m-200m downdip.
This intersection is 150 meters down-dip from the surface exposure
of the mineralization.
