Resource - Gold project at 150 km northwest of, Kalgoorlie, WA 6430 In The Council Area Of Kalgoorlie-Boulder of Private. Two exploration drill programmes and a review of goechemical and geophysical data were completed over the mine leases during the quarter. In total, 7 underground exploration diamond drill holes for 1,177.9 m were undertaken on lode extensions on Lo3 and to follow up a near surface intercept on 9 metres at 21.2 g/t gold on the Silverwing prospect. A drill programme comprising 38 angled holes and totalling 2,587 m was completed on the Anomaly 2, EMI, Lo5, Ultramafic Contact and Silverwing prospects.
