On March 11 the company developed the Yunndaga (Princess May Lode), Lady Shenton Lode and First Hit exploration targets.
A diamond drilling program is designed to test these systems, with the drill rig scheduled to arrive on site today and begin drilling tomorrow.
Around 14 RC pre-collars and 10 RC holes have recently been completed for 3,402 metres at three targets areas.
Assay results for the RC holes are pending with full details on completed holes to follow, along with assay results in two weeks.
