1/ Read final part of #BobMoriarty and #TheUnknownGeologist conversation on @Anaconda_Mining's Goldboro project back in August 2017: ceo.ca/@Newton/more-f…
2/ Part 1 of the conversation here: ceo.ca/@newton/the-un…
3/ What interested in Bob Moriarty in $ANX Goldboro project from the first time he heard about it? In one word: Bendigo. And two words for a bonus round: Saddle Reef.

1/ The Unknown Geologist: There are a couple of key aspects of the Goldboro property. The thickness of the stacked units/belts there are great. All belts plunge 25 degrees to the east...
2/ the best example of this is the Boston Richardson Mine itself, which was one belt mined from surface down to 700 feet. It had a 400-foot shaft. We drilled out to the east down to 1250 feet and it's still there. There was one sample that ran a half-ounce over five feet.
3/ That was in the deepest hole ever drilled on the property. The Boston Richardson still has high-grade gold at depth!

1/ It was tough to sit on the transcript of the call where #TheUnknownGeologist introduced #BobMoriarty to the Goldboro Project owned by @Anaconda_Mining, but the waiting makes it all the better to release now with permission: ceo.ca/@Newton/the-un…
2/ The Unknown Geologist: When Osisko was drilling the property a few years back, they had a deal to take 50-70% of the company. They drilled it as a low-grade, high-tonnage open pit mine and weren't happy with the results.
3/ They were looking for a hundred-meter-wide zone, like in Malartic where they had a mine that was eventually running at something like 55,000 tonnes per day at 1.1 grams per tonne. They were looking for the same thing in Goldboro but they didn't find it.

1/ See another excerpt from the #NewtonInterviews with #TheUnknownGeologist and #BobMoriarty on the @Anaconda_Mining Goldboro Project recorded back on August 24, 2017!
2/ The Unkown Geologist: Back in 2000, when Orex did some follow-up work on it I reached out to them and said, "I can help." Then, I joined the Board. It was unfortunate that all the people on the Board didn't really know what they had.
3/ They raised a lot of money and got Osisko in there to look, which helped them gather a lot of information, but they didn't find what they were looking in terms of a big open pit. Nobody followed up on all these high-grade intersections, even though I was beating the drum

1/ Thanks to #BobMoriarty and #TheUnknownGeologist for allowing me to publish a transcript of our first conversation on the Goldboro Project owned by @Anaconda_Mining! ceo.ca/@Newton/the-un… This interview was recorded back on August 24, 2017!
2/ Check out this excerpt from the interview:
3/ Bob Moriarty: I am fully on board. Nova Scotia is probably the best place in Canada that I've ever seen for exploitation, not just exploration. With those saddle reef deposits, there's no telling how many deposits could be there.
