*Cyanide Soluble grade reported except for hole STR17-032C, which is reported by fire assay with and without gravimetric finish due to individual samples being higher grade than can be accurately assayed using Cyanide Soluble assay techniques (>50 g/t Au). Where available in hole STR17-032C, cyanide soluble grade averaged 84% of fire/gravimetric assay grade.
