ECR Minerals PLC (LON:ECR) will shortly commence drilling at the Black Cat prospect within the Bailieston gold project area in the state of Victoria, Australia.
This programme is in addition to the previously announced drilling which will be taking place at the Creswick gold project and the Blue Moon prospect at Bailieston.
ECR will undertake 450 metres of rotary air blast drilling at Black Cat.
Black Cat is among the high priority targets identified by the geophysical interpretation and targeting study completed by Terra Resources in late 2017.

“The Bailieston project is at the epicentre of the current gold exploration boom in Victoria, being located close to the successful Fosterville mine owned by Kirkland Lake Gold,” said ECR chief executive Craig Brown.
“This point is underlined by the arrival of Newmont Exploration in the district with an application for ground immediately to the north of the Black Cat prospect.”
