Explanation:
All Mineral Resource results reported are rounded to one decimal place, except Phosphorous (P) which is rounded to two decimal places. FeTOT is the total iron value. Any differences between totals and sub-totals are a function of rounding.

Also appears here after 'Fe', the chemical symbol for iron on the periodic table, with 'tot' written in smaller letters; like the '2' after O2 (chemical symbol for oxygen).
