This year, a total of 3,160 m were drilled in 49 holes to test the COD and COD North veins, reported Ximen. In another deep hole, 719 m were drilled. Today's assays hail from holes 28 to 48.

Other highlight assays included 0.32 m at 58.30 g/t gold and 384 g/t silver and 355 parts per million (ppm) tellurium in one hole. Also recovered was 0.48 m at 41.20 g/t gold, 431 g/t silver and 314 ppm tellurium.

Greenwood is one of the most prolific gold-copper camps in North America and Gold Drop is the high grade, near surface project, which was mined intermittently from 1919 to the 1980s.

Historical production

Historical production amounted to 7,572 tonnes at an average grade of 5.2 g/t of gold and 93.4 g/t of silver, with the majority of production coming before 1942.

The wider Greenwood district was once home to 26 mines, which produced more than 1.2 million ounces of gold and over 270,000 tonnes of copper, as well as silver, lead and zinc.
