Saturn Metals Ltd (ASX:STN) has resumed diamond drilling at its 100% owned Apollo Hill Gold Project near Leonora in Western Australia.

The diamond drilling follows the recently commenced reverse circulation (RC) program.

All drilling at Apollo Hill is aimed at rapidly growing its JORC resource, which stands at 20.7 million tonnes grading 1.0 g/t gold for 685,000 ounces.

This diamond program, which will initially comprise three holes for 300 metres, will be funded by the Western Australian government’s exploration incentive scheme.

Saturn’s managing director Ian Bamborough said: “We are pleased to be able to test a couple of new ideas with this drill program. We have been planning on testing these positions for some time.

“The diamond core will provide us with a wealth of information and help us to continually improve our targeting.”

The diamond program is aimed at testing for higher grade plunging shoots in hanging-wall positions to the existing JORC resource.
