Ground exploration for the 2020 season will begin with the first geological assessment over the project since 2007.
An initial site visit has been designed to assess logistical requirements to facilitate access by field staff and drilling contractors for exploration drilling at the project.
Negotiations are progressing with drilling contractors and helicopter support companies to facilitate exploration drilling during the NT dry season.
Meetings have also been arranged with the Northern Land Council (NLC) and traditional owners to negotiate conditions for granting of adjoining exploration licences ELA31065 and ELA31770, which will add considerable prospective ground straddling Ranger Fault and radiometric anomalies to the east and southeast from Devil’s Elbow.

The program will also aim to locate, re-define and resample sites of historical high gold, palladium and uranium samples and radiometric anomalism.
Historical drill holes will be located where possible and accurate positions recorded for coordination with recently interpreted radiometric anomalous zones.
The company is aiming to begin full-scale field exploration and drilling in the near-term.
