Collectively, there is said to have been 382 assay reporting inconsistencies by Red Pine for the period 2019 to 2024. The inconsistencies represent a total of 95 intersections within 69 drill holes over that time period.

The majority of these falsified assay results were contained within the Jubilee and Minto Shear, however the current mineral resource estimate is said to not be impacted. As a result, the contribution from the Surluga South Zone to an updated mineral resource estimate is said to be reduced, while there is also a reduction is prospectivity of the Core Shack and the Surluga North Vein Networks, which are located near the Jubilee shear.
