Anova Metals to start drilling at Nevada gold project

Anova Metals to start drilling at Nevada gold project

Anova Metals (ASX:AWV) will soon start drilling at its Big Springs gold project in Nevada after receiving approval from the United States Forestry Service for its Exploration Plan of Operations.

The company plans to carry out infill reverse circulation drilling of the proposed 601 open pit and underground zones plus minor diamond core drilling for geotechnical and metallurgical sampling purposes.

In addition, further geotechnical diamond core drilling is planned for the potential 701 underground zone plus hydrogeology drilling and pump testing of the proposed North Sammy underground zones.

The program also includes exploration drilling into resource extension targets for the 601 underground zone and Beadles Creek.

Clearing of drilling pads has commenced and the program is planned to start in October.

Big Springs is located about 90 kilometres north of the city of Elko, which is on a major transportation route, Interstate Highway 80 (I80), between Salt Lake City in Utah and Reno in Nevada.

At present, grid electrical power is available within 2 kilometres of the project site. 

The project area was mined between 1987 and 1993 producing 386,000 ounces of gold from six open pits.
