The company said at the end of June 2018, a total of 66 holes (10,809.3 metres) have been completed since initiation of the planned 20,300 metre drill programme on 6 May 2018.

Robin Young, CEO of Amur Minerals, said: “Drilling at two of the largest areas where infill drilling for Russian regulatory considerations was required, has already been completed and we are now drilling at Kubuk and are progressing well towards completing the infill effort there.”

He added: “Drilling of the Inferred high grade zone at Ikenskoe / Sobolevsky is also confirming the continuity of the mineralisation with regard to thickness and grade.  With continued successful drilling here, we anticipate its conversion to a JORC Indicated resource allowing for its full and unqualified inclusion in the mine production schedule.”

"We are extremely pleased with this year's drill results so far and they are allowing us to clear various hurdles meaning that we can move toward production as swiftly as possible," Robin Young said.
