The sites for the initial four holes have been selected. The first three holes will retest historic drill holes to confirm the Imperial vein. The fourth hole will test an identified gold anomaly south of the main Imperial structure.
Minimal site construction work will be needed for the 2020 drill programme. The sites will initially be post-marked in preparation of the drill programme. Three of the four holes are already accessible via an existing road. The fourth site will require the construction of a short stretch of road of less than 100m. JNC's management is confident that infrastructure costs will be minimal, allowing Earthworks, the contractor that the company has retained, to efficiently construct the road and the pads required for the drill programme.
JNC CEO Michael Mulberry said: "We are extremely excited to start the preparation work on our much anticipated 2020 drill programme. The initial drill programme will help delineate a resource and provide a road map for our next stage of drilling. We would like to thank Richard Kern, president of Great Basin Resources, for his excellent work in helping us advance our gold project during these difficult times. We remain laser focused on preparation, efficiency and being cost-effective and we are grateful to be able to tap into Richard's 25 plus years of experience to further delineate our resource."
