Four days ago the West Perth-based company reported it was due to start drilling at its Joyce Copper-Cobalt-Gold Project in Western Ontario, Canada.

An initial 8-hole diamond drill program at Joyce River will take in 500 metres.

Meteoric’s managing director Dr Andrew Tunks said: “Although the initial plan is to test the western end of the system for only 500 metres of drilling.

“Effectively we will be drilling at shallow EM targets that sit immediately below massive and disseminated sulphide mineralisation mapped at surface.

“We will continually evaluate our success during the program and as such, elect to extend the program further.”
