Galileo Resources PLC (LON:GLR) will start a second drill programme at the Star Zinc project in Zambia after an independent review of historical gravity geophysics data matched well with its own results.
Colin Bird, chief executive, said there was a good correlation with known zinc mineralisation at Star Zinc.

“We will use this modelling data to target new boreholes in our forthcoming second drilling programme.”
A first drilling programme that comprised of 26 holes finished in May and hit zones of exceptionally high-grade copper.
From those results, Galileo constructed a conceptual grade-tonnage (CGT) model of 485,000 tonnes at a grade of 15.4% zinc.
