Meteoric’s managing director Dr Andrew Tunks said: “Meteoric’s maiden drilling program at Mulligan of 11 holes has now been safely completed.

“Our drilling contractors G4 Forage were outstanding, and along with fantastic field support from Orix Geoscience, the program has been completed ahead of schedule.

“Tony is currently travelling to site to conduct logging of the core, conduct sampling and generate a 3D model for Mulligan and plan for follow-up drilling.”


Tunks added: “With results from the drilling eagerly awaited along with our extensive airborne program commencing across multiple projects and drilling planned for Burt, Lorrain and Joyce, we certainly have a lot ahead of us and have demonstrated that we have the right team in place to execute.”

Canadian-focused cobalt explorer

During the June quarter, Meteoric's Canadian cobalt portfolio strengthened with three further acquisitions.

A target generation exploration program across the portfolio of projects commenced following commencement of Canadian field season.
