|There are 101k assumed mineable tons with 87.5k of that in the Crystal zones (C3000 and C3300). 90% of this multi-million dollar fantasy riding on ore that cannot be mined. Is there 6 months worth of mineable sulfide ore available, scratched from multiple sources (Southern Cross & Mystery) that St Andrews somehow missed? Even that optimistic assumption seems a very large stretch.|
And what of that nebulous water table? Well holy krap, this ultra dopey promotion has finally admitted, sort of, that there's a problem in the henhouse.
"Mining to Depth: Approximately 50% of the mineral inventory is at depth in the Crystal Mine. At present this is a zero-discharge operation. The water table has not been defined at present. The mine is quite dry with inflows of <1.0 l/s, though the water level at the bottom of the mine is known to fluctuate seasonally by as much as 6 vertical metres. The Company has several plans in place to facilitate mining to depth, including the installation of dammed reservoirs in the mine to contain mine water, recycling mine water for drill requirements, using spraying misters to evaporate excess water."
|Yeah sure. Alaskan evaporation will save the day, if underground dams won't do the trick, don't be bloody damn ridiculous.|
More utterly frikkin insulting smoke and mirrors, and EVERY possible plan was examined in detail by St Andrews at great expense and discarded as not feasible. And the water table is "not defined" ? Absolutely defined according to the environmental assessment filed with the Alaska government ... or the Golder Associates study on grouting and pumping ... if we had it of course.
