Castillo Copper gears up for drilling at Big One Deposit
The geology team at CCZ has finalised a drilling campaign at the Queensland-based Mt Oxide project. The campaign follows a geophysics survey conducted in the area across a 1,200-metre strike event at the Big One deposit.
The campaign will include 26 drill holes for 2,828 metres to extend known mineralisation. It will cover 108 metres of HQ diamond core coring in two drill holes, designed to collect the detailed assay, density, and geotechnical measurements.

The company is completing the construction for the second drill site with phase II drilling at the project scheduled to start in mid-June.
