I'd like to clarify why the 50 degree angle

Geological formations are often like a layer cake, but usually tilted a bit (or a lot)

Grand Canyon (of the Colorado) is fairly level East-West but rises a bit to the North, maybe 1-2 degrees
Evidence of this is that the same layer sequence is found in Bryce and Zion Canyons but about 5000 feet higher

Red Rock Canyon, California, is tilted 17 degrees (you have probably seen this area in Western movies)

Where I live is a bit more chaotic, with some if the strata pretty near 90 degrees, a few miles away it is only 10-20 degrees

All of the above areas were originally an inland sea bottom, as was most of the western US

What the drilling is trying to do is cut as many layers as possible, they do this by drilling at a normal (90 degree angle) to the strata, this usually causes drilling to be at some angle

share your opinion; still, it appears that WOLV BoD takes a long time to learn their lesson ....
how about this one? saw this theory put forward for another "puzzling" exploration situation on another Cu/Ni exploration project:
The conductor (ore body or other) could be vertical. This might explain the "ghost" reading. A very strong vertical conductor (along with some other factors) could off-set the EM survey. A vertical structure would also make a more difficult drill target, and that would explain why the results of the drilling haven't confirmed the Strong EM readings. An accurate 3-D model will quickly prove or disprove this theory.
In any event, it appears JV will be necessary to get to the bottom of this....
