I exchanged emails with my junior mining company insider to get some interpretation of the results and affirmation of my view: "These nugget deposits are very difficult to model and drive mining engineers absolutely nutz!

The gold is coarse and not equally and predictably distributed, so the consultant had a very difficult time modeling the deposit and therefore coming up with an agreeable resource estimate.
