Richard Wank wrote to us last week to say that the 184 ounces per ton (6,307.53 g/t) of gold reported last week was not the highest grade intersected from the depths of GOLDCORP’s Red Lake gold mine in northwest Ontario.

“Actually, they had a hole that was even better than that. If you look at Slide 25 in the November 2007 exploration update side package on the Goldcorp website, you’ll see the following hole: 184 oz over 28 ft including 839 oz over 6 ft!”

For the metrically inclined, that’s a whopping 28,760 g/t Au over 1.83 metres.
