Drilling at Hillside project
FEL recently encountered strongly anomalous gold and high levels of base metals during reconnaissance work in three different locations at its Hillside project, part of its tenement package in Western Australia’s Pilbara region.
The company’s landholding comprises 18 tenements held in an earn-in agreement with Macarthur Minerals Limited (CVE:MMS) and is prospective for lithium, gold, copper, base metals and iron ore, with many known deposits within and around the tenure.
Preliminary planning for initial drilling is underway with the arrangement of heritage and earth works for logistical and access requirements.
Final drill sites will be determined following detailed mapping and ground truthing of targets already identified from desktop aerial mapping that is also underway.
