The company started the aircore drilling program in mid-April and drilled 109 holes for a total of 3,265 metres. The company drilled mostly at Carey’s Well (95 holes for 2,736 metres). The initial observation of this drilling shows the kaolinised resource has extended beyond the prevailing boundary. In north?east, it is up to 300 metres, while in the south, it extended to 100 metres and in the east, it extended to 200 metres. Further, the company installed three hydrogeological wells at Carey’s well to collect data needed for a feasibility study in the future and for the application process of mining lease. Bureau Veritas is likely to provide elemental assay results in early June, while CSIRO and the University of Newcastle would provide halloysite results by next quarter. After getting these results, the company will complete the revised mineral resource (JORC 2012) calculation. This is expected later in this year only.
Moreover, according to a company announcement in May 2019, the company completed extensive test work on Carey’s well deposit and is working towards applying for mining lease, needed for evaluation of the feasibility of the project.
