Orix will evaluate historical drillhole databases and mapping datasets to identify weaknesses, inconsistencies, and errors during a rigorous review process. The assessment will consider rock types, alteration, mineralization, structural information, and assays currently existing in the database. The review will identify the challenges and provide suggestions for increasing the quality of the database.
The audit involves statistically analyzing the data in the database by counting the number of times a unit occurs in the database and it's cumulative length. This process will identify inconsistencies and areas where standardization is required.
The audit will also include comparing the raw data (paper logs and maps) and verifying the information captured in the digital database.
