"Did Snowden drill results confirm selection bias?"
That's perhaps a bit harsh, YP.
The June 28, 2012, release was seemingly attributed to Geoex by BGM in its news release. This was tempered considerably in the July 7, 2012, news release by the company, which was itself not supported by an authorization letter signed by Geoex (and neither was the June 28, 2012, BGM news release).
The SEDAR-filed Geoex report of Agust 13, 2012, did not contain the ounces released by BGM, yet was attributed to Geoex.
If the twinned holes drilled under the supervision of Snowgen were "dusters", that can hardly be held against Geoex as it's unlikely that the original holes were drilled under Geoex's supervision.
Snowden would be unlikely to apportion blame, as they were likely hired to create a resource estimate...come what may, but based on verifiable data.
