Arrow Minerals Ltd (ASX:AMD) has commenced a 26,000-metre aircore drill program at its 100% owned Strickland Gold Project (formerly Barlee Gold Project) in the Eastern Goldfields of Western Australia.
Drilling will focus on the T1, T2, T6 and T8 prospects, where significant gold mineralisation was intersected with first-pass drilling in 2017.
Drilling has commenced at the T8 prospect where late-2017 drilling confirmed thick, continuous gold mineralisation with multiple high-grade intersections.
The T8 prospect comprises a 1.7x0.6 kilometre gold-in-soil anomaly and previous results including 27 metres at 0.64 g/t gold from 9 metres including 1-metre at 8.95 g/t gold.
The 86 holes planned at T8 will be complete by mid-April with assay results expected four weeks after drilling completion.
Program will then target T6, T2 and T1
After T8, drilling will continue at the T6, T2 and T1 prospects, with a similar density of drilling.
The entire drill program is expected to be completed by June 2018.
Assay results will be released separately for each prospect.
