Diamond drilling to commence at Blind Calf
Drilling crews are in the process of transitioning to diamond drilling to focus on testing down-plunge extensions to the high-grade Blind Calf-Dunbars Copper Lode system.
RC drilling in July 2019 increased the footprint of the known and interpreted high-grade core in the Blind Calf-Dunbars copper lode system with 10 metres at 4.32% copper from 176 metres.
Diamond drilling is expected to continue for the remainder of January and throughout February 2020.
Talisman is also advancing its plans for a 2,000-metre drill program at the Lucknow Gold Project with land access now secured and an application submitted to the NSW authority.
