Due to wet conditions, the program was delayed and the company began hole preparation on Friday, October 18.
The 300-metre hole is now underway and as of today was at 75 metres with completion expected on Wednesday, October 23.
Hopes to grow shareholder value
Upon completion, the equipment will be moved to the Alotta project with work aimed at extending the high-grade nickel-copper-platinum group elements (PGE) deposit based on the latest interpreted geological and structural model.
The company hopes to grow shareholder value with early-stage exploration success at its Canadian projects it picked up a year ago with the acquisition of Zeus Minerals Pty Ltd and Zeus Olympus Sub Corp.
At Lorraine Chase hopes to intersect both DHEM conductors as well as better understand the extent and style of the zinc-copper anomalous brecciated sulphide mineralisation the team had intersected in the primary hole.
