Sampling and Assay Protocols

Drill Core

All drill holes are photographed wet.  Magnetic susceptibility, foliation, and rock quality determination (“RQD”) measurements are systematically collected.  All cross-cutting (potentially mineralized) quartz veins and adjoining alteration envelopes are individually photographed.  Core logging records lithology, structure, and alteration.  Visible gold is identified, measured, photographed, and then excluded from the assay sample for that interval.  Assay samples from drill core are cut using a diamond saw.  Half the core sample interval is bagged, tagged, and sealed; the other half is returned to the core box with a corresponding tag and retained for reference.  Sample bags are aggregated into rice bags, sealed, and submitted by Klondike Gold personnel to Bureau Veritas Mineral Laboratories (“BV Labs”) (formerly Acme Labs) preparation facility in Whitehorse, YT with chemical analysis of sample pulps completed in Vancouver, British Columbia.  Bureau Veritas Labs is an accredited ISO 9001:2008 full-service commercial laboratory.

At BV Labs each rock sample is crushed to 80% passing 2 mm size.  A 500 g subsample is pulverized to >85% passing -75 microns size (Code PRP70-500). The 500 g subsample is then sieved to 106 microns (140 mesh) for “metallic screen” assaying. The plus 140 mesh fraction is then weighed and assayed for gold by fire assay (“FA”) fusion with a gravimetric finish (Code FS631). A 30 g subsample of the minus 140 mesh fraction is assayed for gold by fire assay (“FA”) fusion with an atomic absorption (“AA”) finish (Code FA430).  All over-limit results in excess of 10 ppm (10 g/t) for both silver and gold are re-assayed using a 30 g subsample and assayed by FA with a gravimetric finish (Code FA530-Au/Ag).  Total gold grade is then calculated using a weighted average of the plus and minus fraction assay results. Samples were also analyzed for multi-element chemistry by ICP-MS analysis (AQ201+U code).  Samples over-limit in lead are rerun by a high-detection limit ICP-ES procedure (Code MA370).  QA/QC includes the insertion and continual monitoring of Klondike Gold standards, blanks, and duplicates within each batch, in addition to BV Labs QA/QC samples.

Prospecting Samples

Klondike Gold prospecting samples are selective in nature, non-representative rock grab samples of bedrock or boulders collected to test for the presence or absence of gold and other ‘economic’ minerals.  Systematic additional test results may vary significantly.  Samples are usually 0.5 kg to 2.0 kg in weight.  The Company’s samples are spatially located to within 5 meters using a hand-held Global Positioning System (“GPS”) in NAD83 datum, assigned a unique assay tag, described, photographed using a GPS-enabled camera, then placed in a plastic bag and sealed.  Groups of sealed sample bags are aggregated in large fiber bags then security sealed for shipment.  The fiber bags are retained in locked storage in the Company’s Dawson office before being delivered by Company personnel directly to the lab.  Samples are submitted to Bureau Veritas Mineral Laboratories (“BV Labs”) (formerly Acme Labs) preparation facility in Whitehorse, YT with chemical analysis of sample pulps completed in Vancouver, British Columbia.  Bureau Veritas Labs is an accredited ISO 9001:2008 full-service commercial laboratory.

As per Klondike Gold’s instructions, at BV Labs each 1 kg rock sample is crushed to 80% passing 2 mm size.  A 250 g subsample is pulverized to 85% passing -75 microns size (Code PRP70-250).  A 30 g (1 assay ton) subsample is assayed for gold by fire assay (“FA”) fusion with an atomic absorption (“AA”) finish (Code FA430).  All over-limit results in excess of 10 ppm (10 g/t) for both silver and gold are re-assayed.  The re-assay uses a 30 g subsample and is assayed by FA with a gravimetric finish (Code FA530-Au/Ag).  Samples were also analyzed for multi-element chemistry by ICP-MS analysis (AQ200+U code).   Samples over-limit in lead are rerun by a high-detection limit ICP-ES procedure (Acme code MA370).

Soil Samples

Soils are collected using a soil auger or mattox and placed in a Kraft paper soil sample bag.  Soil samples were aggregated into rice bags, sealed, and submitted by Klondike Gold personnel to Bureau Veritas Mineral Laboratories (“BV Labs”) (formerly Acme Labs) preparation facility in Whitehorse, YT with chemical analysis of sample pulps completed in Vancouver, British Columbia.  Bureau Veritas Labs is an accredited ISO 9001:2008 full-service commercial laboratory.  Samples were analyzed for multi-element chemistry by ICP-MS analysis (AQ201 code).  QA/QC includes the insertion and continual monitoring of Klondike Gold standards, blanks, and duplicates within each batch, in addition to BV Labs QA/QC samples.
