ECR's ground is highly prospective for gold

Following the appointment of Dr Rodney Boucher to lead on-ground exploration activities in Victoria, Australia, ECR Minerals PLC (LON:ECR) is to drill multiple gold targets.

Dr Boucher has extensive exploration experience in the region, and has now visited most of the known prospects and carried out geological mapping in key zones. A programme of geochemical sampling at the higher priority prospects is already underway, and this will help define drill targets.
