A total of 6,779 metres was drilled within Western Flanks North, with the goal of upgrading the current inferred mineral resource. Highlights from the drill program within the main shear and hanging wall zone include 3.8 g/t gold over 9.9 metres, 3.0 g/t gold over 17.8 metres, and 8.1 g/t gold over 6.6 metres, including 13.7 g/t gold over 3.3 metres from three separate holes.
The new footwall zone meanwhile features highlights of 4.6 g/t over 9.4 metres, 6/0 g/t gold over 5.3 metres and 7.0 g/t gold over 8.6 metres among others.
Select holes were also utilized to test continuity of nickel mineralization in the region, with results indicating a potential for shoots to occur above the Western Flanks gold mineral resource.
