Hi and welcome to the forum. Congratulations on your discovery and I hope it proves successful! While I am certainly not a mining engineer, I would suggest providing some detail as to the topography above the vein as it trends east. What is the pitch and dip of the vein in relation to the topography? Have you done any drilling to determine this? Maybe someone with a solid mining/engineering background can chime in. We would be very interested in hearing of your progress so please feel free to share. Thanks.
