Quality Assurance / Quality Control


For each batch of samples sent to the laboratory, Cartier inserts 5% of the number of samples in the form of certified standards and another 5% in the form of blanks to ensure quality control.  The samples are analyzed at the Techni-Lab (Actlabs) laboratory in Ste-Germaine-Boulé, Quebec, Canada. Samples weighing 3 to 5 kg are crushed by the laboratory to 90% passing 10 mesh (2.00 mm), then a 500 g fraction of each sample is pulverized to 90% passing 200 mesh (0.07 mm).  The resulting 50 g pulps are analyzed by fire assay with an atomic absorption finish.  Samples with results ≥ 1.0 g/t and < 10.0 g/t are re-assayed by fire assay with an atomic absorption finish.  Results greater than or equal to 10.0 g/t Au are analyzed by fire assay with a gravimetric finish.  For samples containing visible gold, a 500 g subsample of rock is analyzed by the metallic sieve method.
