Garth Kirkhma was the sharp-eyed reader who caught a mistake in the Net News article last week about bcMetals’ Red Chris mine in British Columbia. He writes: “Not to be picky, but based on the tonnage and grade numbers used in the Red Chris article and using 33.104 grams per troy ounce, the in situ gold should be approximately 2.3 million ounces not 119 million.” The “119” number came from the press release issued by bcMetals. But (oops) the decimal place slipped away. The number should have read “1.19 million”. So sorry. It has been corrected on our website.
