Abstract. Poorly designed sampling protocols generally result in high project risk by artificially increasing grade variability (ie the nugget effect). Sample collection, preparation and assay ...Step #6 – Mining samples and determining processing. Once mining gets underway, samples must be taken to determine the precise metallurgical qualities of the ore. This is done in order to determine the appropriate processing technique. Step #7 – Processing (on-site) Once ore is extracted, processing it into pure gold must be done.
