Elena Nikitenko, Chief of Sample Preparation, Matrosov Mine, Polyus Gold Company, will tell about "Improving the efficiency and quality of the exploration of objects with low-grade gold on the example of the Natalka deposit". For calculation of stocks and estimations of economic efficiency gold objects at prospecting works serve as a basis the given definitions of con-tents of gold in prospecting sample. Therefore, delimitation depends on quality and reliability of results of the analysis of sample mineralization and geometrization of bowels at calculation of stocks of gold. Definition of contours industrial mineralization according to approbation is the most actual for the objects which are not having precise geological borders. Improvement of quality and reliability of definition of contents of gold in sample probably due to new methods. One of them is preparation of sample to fire assay with preliminary gravitational concentration gold.The way is realized on Natalka deposit, which is characterized by low contents of gold. Mikhail Evtushenko, Director, STC "Magnetic fluid", will follow the previous presentation.
