New gold and base metal targets
On June 29, the company identified new gold and base metals drilling targets at the Abra Base Metals Project as well as within a recently expanded nearby Jillawarra project area.
Recent work has identified gold mineralisation trends and associated key structures potentially controlling ingress of base and precious metals rich fluids into the deposit from depth.
The company has subsequently developed priority drilling targets specifically for gold and copper at Abra, which is in Western Australia's Mid-West.
Managing director Alex Molyneux said at the time: “Whilst financing is underway we tasked our geological team to focus on ‘game-changers’ for Galena, including the identification of high-priority target zones for gold and copper mineralisation at Abra, and finding the ‘next Abra’ on our now 76 kilometre-strike of 100%-owned tenements to the west of Abra.”
