The 2020 drilling improved drill density to further uniform spacing of ten metres. It therefore allows ore zones’ improved definition.

Mineralisation remains open to the north and south. Mineralisation at the project lies within the supergene enrichment zone. The Company advised that it has received all single RC assays that highlight shallow high-grade intercepts.
