Student/Industry Lunchtime Technical Talk 2016
On Wednesday, February 24, CIM-NB (Canadian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy – NB Branch) hosted a Technical Talk by Dr. Allan Armitage, Geovector Management Inc, at the University of New Brunswick, Fredericton Campus. Allan presented “The San Gregorio/Las Carolinas Intermediate Sulphidation Ag-Pb-Zn-(Cu-Au) Epithermal Deposit, La Cigarra Project, Chihuahua Mexico”. Dr. Armitage outlined where the project was located, the complicated geology of the area, as well as the methods used to determine the extent of the mineral resource. Mr. Armitage also discussed the “NI” 43-101 resource estimates for the project, cut-off grades, as well as some of the economics surrounding the mineral resource.
Approximately 35 people attended the event, from academics and students, to other consultants and geologists. Mr. Armitage answered many questions, and stayed behind after the talk to answer any extra questions and meet those who attended.
