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.
Rattlesnake and Pikes Peak contain numerous historical workings that consist of, milling facilities several adits
at different levels, underground workings with vertical shafts, and a network of existing roads providing access to connect all the historical workings.
Where exposed, the Adit
Shear Zone contains quartz veining occurring over widths from 1 to over 30 metres.
are horizontal passages leading into a mine for access of water drainage purposes.
Shortly after the sighting, Cimatu had five teams inspect the tunnels and mining items were confiscated: 53 adits
, 34 drums for cyanide (both empty and full) and more than 2,000 kilograms of ore from Cab-owan, Last Creek, Paltekan 1 and Paltekan 2 and Demo area.
For Diamer Basha Dam, laboratory testing data and geological mapping of two adits
(total length 1183 m) have been used as the input parameters to classify the rock mass.
In our first eight months, we have already negotiated contracts worth pounds 10m ( the best performance among all the regional Adits
It has been found both in the lower adits
and in quartz veins in the upper trenches.
The main problems in planning East Boulder's muck handling systems were the long adits
and the orebody's long strike length.
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.
A total of 464 soil samples were collected, which defined a 60 metre X 300 metre copper soil anomaly on strike with known mineralization exposed in 3 adits
. A 2.3 kilogram composite grab sample of mineralized quartz vein was also collected and is reported to have assayed 2.69% copper, 14.4 grams per tonne silver and trace gold.
It is anticipated that this work will commence immediately upon receipt of the necessary permits for the upgrading of existing adits
to current standards and bulk sampling.
