The drilling will target three main zones: A 1.5km long, broadly west-northwest-trending anomaly; an artisanal mining site in the northeast of the licence and a gold anomaly extending over 400m.

A diamond drill rig has also been mobilised to validate the two best intersections previously reported by Oriole: MBDD-002 in the southeast and MBRC-117 in the west.

Holes will be drilled towards the east and to a depth of 100m and 150m (87m and 130m true depth) at each target, respectively.
