The turnaround is three to four weeks meaning first assay results are expected in the second week of September.
This follows the completion of the first four holes at Lorraine earlier this month.
The Lorraine drill program comprises 7 holes for 1,445 metres with 2,500 metres budgeted with additional drilling as warranted based on results.
The first hole CM-19-06 was completed at 135 metres and was designed to intersect the modelled priority-one versatile time domain electromagnetic (VTEM) plate at a depth of 90 metres.
The hole ended in a 40-plus metre gabbro body with minor sulphides but did not intersect a massive sulphide source that would explain the strong VTEM conductor.
Pending the outcome of hole CM-19-07 which is being drilled to a depth of 350 metres, CM-19-06 will be deepened to test the footwall contact zone of the gabbro to host nickel-copper mineralisation as well as gold mineralisation.
