The company is focusing on the West Musgrave joint venture with OZ Minerals Limited (ASX:OZL) in Western Australia with a number of other opportunities to provide exposure to exploration success.
At West Musgrave, in which OZ Minerals has 51% and is earning up to 70%, the partners are undertaking a pre-feasibility study (PFS) on the Nebo-Babel deposits.
A local and regional exploration program is running concurrently with both activities funded by the JV earn-in agreement.
Field crews have recommenced infill drilling at Nebo-Babel and further drill testing of regional exploration targets.
The immediate priority for exploration drilling is at One Tree Hill prospect where a recently defined large EM conductor will be tested.
Following One Tree Hill drilling, and subject to results, drilling will move to test extensions to mineralisation at Nebo (Sugar Lode) as well as further infill drilling at Succoth.
The PFS remains on track to be completed by the end of the June quarter of 2019.
Cassini is also reprioritising its remaining project portfolio following work in 2018.
