FEL holds a 20% interest in all minerals in five exploration licences within Auris’ Forrest project and will be free carried until a decision to mine.
Auris is planning to drill eight reverse circulation holes at Forrest and 10 holes at Wodger for 2,170 metres and 2,330 metres respectively, totalling 4,500 metres.

The aim of this drilling is to prove geological and grade continuity within and between sections and to confirm the dip and plunge of previously intersected mineralised zones, which remain open.
It is worth noting that recent analysis of historical drilling pulps revealed an intersection of 9 metres at 5.8% copper from 76 metres at the Forrest prospect.
The drilling is targeting several zones of potentially high-grade copper mineralisation.
Along with its highly prospective copper-gold ground in Western Australia’s Bryah Basin, FEL is advancing its Kasombo Cobalt-Copper Project in the DRC towards production in the first quarter of 2020.
The company has completed extensive mapping, sampling and preliminary drilling at Kasombo which has returned strong copper-cobalt results to date.
