APEX Geoscienece, Consultant. Apex will undertake a work program to create a wire frame model of the underground workings by digitizing all data developed by the Company, along with all historic data, and the recently acquired Cordex data, and will include new digital and laser surveys of all historic accesses, haulage ways, stopes and drill collars. By incorporating this data into a comprehensive 3 dimensional underground model the Company will be better able to plan any proposed mining operations along with planning any future underground sampling and drilling programs. Based upon the new survey information and the underground model, APEX will also establish the most effective methods required to convert the reported historic resource into a NI-43-101 resource.
