To date, drilling is 75% complete, with 75,000 metres having been drilled on the property. Preparation is being conducted for underground drilling platform development, as while technical studies continue to be conducted to support future resource estimates and feasibility studies.
The underground drill platforms are being establish so as to enable the company to drill to greater depths and obtain a stronger resource estimate with a higher degree of confidence. These platforms are being established as part of the 2020 drill campaign, which is expected to have total expenditures in the area of $42 million.

Wallbridge currently estimates that 10 to 15% of drilling conducted over the multi-year drill plan will be conducted on regional targets across the Detour-Fenelon Gold Trend.
Following the 2020 and 2021 exploration programs, the company expects to continue to have significant reserves thanks in part to recent financings conducted. Presently, the company has no debt and $97 million in the bank.
