Follow-up drilling program
Earlier this month the company scheduled a follow-up drill program of five diamond holes at the Boda prospect within the Northern Molong Porphyry Project in New South Wales.
The 5,000 metres of drilling will test the substantial Boda porphyry gold-copper mineralisation identified in drill hole KSDD003 along strike and down dip.
This hole returned an intersection of 502 metres at 0.48 g/t gold and 0.20% copper from 211 metres with extensive alteration indicative of the core zone of a substantial mineralised porphyry system.
