|Well the BCSC was sleeping as usual for the initial release of Barkerville news and were only awakened from that permanent snooze with the howls of millions as the story went National. The Financial Post, Northern Miner, and other influencial writers went to work while the local Vancouver press were silent.|
The highly respected Mr. Brent Cook put it well and mildly ...
"Let’s get this out of the way at the start: The technical report is deficient with regards to the inclusion of details of the project database and many aspects of the resource modeling procedures; so much so that a complete understanding of the process and conclusions could not be arrived at."
The Northern Miner had this to say
For Kirkham though, the biggest source of concern is the sample data on which the resource was based. He sifted through the lengthy sample database in the report that apparently backed up the resource, and found that while the database shows roughly 125,000 foot-long samples, only 22,355 samples were plugged into the Amine software George used to calculate the resource."
