Saturn Metals Ltd (ASX:STN) has resumed resource expansion drilling yesterday at its Apollo Hill Gold Project near Leonora in Western Australia.

The newly planned 3,600-metre reverse circulation (RC) program aims to rapidly grow the 20.7 million tonnes grading 1.0 g/t gold for 685,000 ounces resource.

Following the completion of broad-spaced step-out drilling that confirmed the continuation of the Apollo Hill system, to the north and south late last year, the new program will seek to infill these corridors of mineralisation.

Saturn’s managing director Ian Bamborough said: “Significant potential exists to find higher grade zones between the step-out intersections reported in December last year and the northern and southern ends of the current Apollo Hill resource envelope.

“That is what particularly excites us about this new program.”
