Drilling will start early April and is expected to take two weeks to complete

Arafura Resources Ltd (ASX:ARU) is set to commence drilling early April at its 60% owned Bonya tungsten project in the Northern Territory.

The reverse circulation (RC) drilling program of around 2,500 metres is scheduled for each of Samarkand, Jericho, White Violet, and Tashkent deposits.

Notably, each deposit has outcropping tungsten at surface, ensuring the drilling is into, or below, previously known mineralisation.

Further updates are expected on drilling progress, preliminary on-site XRF analysis, followed by formal laboratory assays.
