What all these passages are, of course I cannot say, but we thought that they must be the ancient workings of a mine, of which the various shafts and adits
travelled hither and thither as the ore led them.
But when she tried to sell the house in Tilewright Close, Kidsgrove, Stoke on Trent, seven years later, she and her husband Richard discovered there were two adits
- entrances to mines - running close by.
Samples from the vicinity of the El Paso adit
returned assay values of 2 ppb, 9 ppb and 149 ppb Au.
Rare Earths recently received the approval to re-open the Last Chance northern adit
to allow for the retrieval of up to 2,500 short tons of metallurgical sample material from the adit
and a historic surface stockpile.
Students at three North colleges will soon get access to hi-tech IT learning and resources after the first broadband services contract was awarded by Adit
We estimate that the opening of the Last Chance existing adits
will save the company approximately $6 million and reduce our development time by at least three years, which places us well ahead of our peers and well on our way of executing our strategy of providing a complete domestic supply chain solution of critical rare earths which are made in America.
Based on the preliminary plan, the development method will be an adit
driven to the ore body to provide access and raises will be used to develop the ore.
The locations of the two decline adits
have been determined based on the results of 29,115 m of diamond drilling completed between 2003 and October 2005 in 129 holes along 2.
Also during 2005, the Company erected a gold recovery plant in the Manganeso area to process underground bulk samples from the decline adits
and cross drift adits
The three adits
occur over a strike length of 250 metres (m) in that area of the Boss Extension where abundant copper oxide mineralization is exposed in outcrop (see news release dated May 15, 2008).
Our Chinese partner has done excellent exploration work to date in the form of adit
sampling and surface mapping.
Old maps show the mine has three adits
; the lower adit
originally had 2500 feet of tunnel with three veins showing; the middle adit
had 2550 feet of tunnel, showing two veins, and the upper adit
was shown to be caved.
