ASX-listed mineral explorer Raiden Resources Limited (ASX:RDN|DAX:YM4) announced the successful completion of the maiden diamond drilling program on its Vuzel Gold Project. The project lies in the highly prospective Tethyan metallogenic belt running through Bulgaria.

The drilling program commenced on 31 March 2022 to drill test the core of the target area, which is characterised by broad gold mineralisation. The target area extends over several kilometres and includes high-grade sections defined through historical channel/rock chip sampling.

RDN’s initial plan was to drill around 1,500m of diamond holes to unlock the gold potential of the project. The Company ended up drilling 11 holes with a total depth of 1594.8m.

The drilling program targeted outcropping and broad zones of mineralisation, which were delineated from historical workings in the tenement area. The previous explorers did not carry out any drilling campaigns over the central segment of the target area. This was the first time a drilling operation was carried out with permit access, as per the Company, in the most prospective zones of the project.

All the cores from the drilling program have been cut and sent to the laboratory for further analysis. RDN has logged core samples for the geology, structure and analysis of alterations. The final interpretation will be carried out once the full report is received from the lab.
