To date, only four of the 18 identified prospects have been drill tested, with zinc-lead mineralisation being intersected at very shallow depths at all four prospects.
Additional field exploration programs will be carried out to further assess identified prospects and generate new targets.
Drilling being planned
Furthermore, planning and logistics are progressing for drilling programs aimed at defining sufficient shallow, open-pittable, high-grade zinc-lead mineralisation.
Drilling aims to justify the commencement of feasibility studies.
Apollo plans to use a track-mounted reverse circulation (RC) rig suitable for a rapid drilling program over multiple channels.
Future drilling would be working towards estimating a maiden JORC resource, which would feed into feasibility studies.
