Drilling is expected to be completed by early June

Rox Resources Ltd (ASX:RXL) has commenced a 1,200-metre reverse circulation (RC) drill program at the Currans Find prospect within the Youanmi Gold Project in Western Australia.

Drilling will focus on two main gold prospects Currans North, and Red White and Blue Middle Workings.

In addition, shallow RC drilling is also planned at the Taylor’s Reef discovery where recent shallow excavation and trenching uncovered strongly gold-mineralized vein quartz.

The Youanmi Gold Project, which hosts a 1.19 million-ounce JORC-compliant resource grading 2.97 g/t gold, is in the Murchison region of Western Australia and comes with a historical database of 550,000 metres of drilling.

The mine ceased operation in 1997 when the gold price was just above $400 per ounce.

Rox and Venus have recently gained access to over 600 square kilometres of tenure along the Youanmi Greenstone Belt.
