Next Steps at the Clermont gold project

QXR plans to conduct its maiden drilling programs and other activities at the Red Dog, Ibis and historical Belyando open pit and extensions. The company has already conducted a soil sampling and geophysical program at these prospects.

At Ibis, the infill soil sampling program had uncovered a massive 600m diameter gold anomaly.

QXR is well-funded in the eyes of its management to fast-track its exploration and development activities at the gold projects. The company recently raised over AU$2 million.
