Well I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend, I can honestly say it was a quiet one for this mining photog. With the Covid isolation in effect and photography not an essential service, I cannot create any “new” images which gives me a lot of time to organize my website and catch up on some essential reading in the industry.
From www.puregoldmining.ca instagram is an image I created in the core room while on site in Red Lake. Pure Gold currently has 1.2 million meters of drilling in their database.
Stay safe everyone and I hope to see you all on site soon.
A Geologist takes notes of the thousands of core samples stacked column after column at this Northern Ontario Mine Site. These Core samples are obtained by drilling into the rock using a core drill tipped with a Diamond Drill Bit. The core samples are then analysed to detect the properties of metals and alloys.
