Blackdome-Elizabeth Gold Project

Tempus recently initiated a drilling program at the Blackdome-Elizabeth project to focus on verifying and expanding upon the known gold and silver mineralisation within the 350 square kilometre licence area that remains relatively unexplored.

The company has drilled 11 holes for a total of 2,165 metres and geological logging indicates that in all the holes drilled so far, the alteration zones and veins have been intersected and the area is expected to host mineralisation.
