Two rigs have been mobilised to site to accelerate exploration efforts

Saturn Metals Ltd (ASX:STN) has resumed exploration drilling at its Apollo Hill Gold Project near Leonora in the Western Australian goldfields.

An aggressive program of up to 10,000 metres of reverse circulation (RC) drilling has commenced at Apollo Hill as part of Saturn’s efforts to expand the newly discovered high-grade hanging wall zones and to rapidly grow the project’s resource, which currently stands at 20.7 million tonnes grading 1 g/t gold for 685,000 ounces.

Planned exploration and resource extension drilling locations relative to the published resource

Having finished the March 2019 quarter with $2.8 million in cash, and after successfully raising $1.5 million through a share placement in May, Saturn is well funded to accelerate drilling activity at Apollo Hill and has brought a second rig to site for that purpose.

Saturn managing director Ian Bamborough said: “We have been highly encouraged by the results we have seen to date from the newly discovered hanging wall zones and as a result we are ramping up exploration efforts.

“This new program of drilling will further test the potential of those zones and could deliver a step change in the size and grade of the Apollo Hill Mineral Resource.”
