On December 2018, the company already underwent testing of gold targets in the area covering twenty kilometers of prospective Greenstone in the Stanley project through air core and reverse circulation drilling programs.
The Stanley air-core program drilled approximately 65 holes at a depth of 2,661 meters and reverse circulation was used to targets at Brays and McDougall with eight holes at a depth of 866 meters. The assay results of these programs are expected during this month.
The reverse circulation program had a plan of drilling six holes, including holes in the Stanley Hill prospect. However, these were rescheduled to match the harvesting activity. The rig will be remobilized to the site later during the week to start further drilling with the expected results to arrive approximately within 3-4 weeks post completion of the drilling.
After the completion of the Stanley program, the reverse circulation rig will be used to drill the Jeffries prospect on the Bencubbin project that the company has. The WA government is supporting this project with its co-funding initiative.
