Ximen Mining (CVE:XIM) (OTCQB:XXMMF) has moved forward at its flagship Brett gold property in British Columbia, revealing it had submitted an application for underground development at the site.

Dependent on getting the go-ahead, the program could begin within this quarter and would take up to two months to complete, the resource group said.

A planned diamond drill program would follow.

Brett spans a 20,025 hectare epithermal gold district in southern British Columbia near the city of Vernon. Previous intercepts include up to 168 g/t over 1.3 meters and visible gold is common.

Ximen said the aim of the program was to explore the Main Zone to the northwest, along strike, where a number of significant gold intercepts were drilled from surface.

The team will also expose ground beneath a historic surface bulk sample, and explore the Main Zone and parallel structures by underground diamond drilling.

Ximen hopes this will lead to defining mineralized zones with potential for bulk sampling.

The work program includes:

  • rehabilitation of the workings,
  • excavation of diamond drill stations in the existing drift,
  • a 50 meter cross-cut from the exiting drift with a drill station,
  • new drifting to extend the current mine level up to 200 meters
  • additional drill stations in the new drift, and
  • a second 50 meter cross-cut and diamond drill station from the new drift.

Shares in Toronto ticked up 1.64% to $0.62 each.
