Over 10,500m has been completed from 60 plus drill holes targeting resource definition and expansion areas. Sample shipments to the laboratory are ongoing with assay results anticipated for early August.
John Williamson, CEO said: "The addition of this third diamond drill rig increases our total drills on the project to five, which will help us quickly advance towards our 50,000m programme.
"The drilling programme is going exceptionally well with the two diamond rigs performing around 30 per cent ahead of anticipated drill meterage.
"Drilling at the Cliff Creek zone has intersected zones of alteration, veining, and mineralisation in all holes to date. The geological field teams are performing detailed geological mapping, soil and rock sampling and the geophysical crews are near completion of ground magnetic and IP surveys at a number of zones."
All 2020 drilling to date is focused on defining and expanding a mineral resource from three key areas: 1. Cliff Creek Zone, 2. Dukes Ridge to Phoenix Zones, and 3. AGB Zone. Field work has been effective at advancing new drill targets for potential new discoveries at the Silver Pond Porphyry target and the Marmot Zone.
