Advanced mineral exploration and related resource estimation of narrow vein deposits often begin with diamond drill core sampling. As early exploitation of an economic deposit proceeds, access to the mineralization becomes easier, and channel sampling of underground production stopes and mining tunnels are carried out. Learn how one can quickly compare and use the geochemical information from both data sets to enable more effective grade selection and resource estimation decisions.
