  • Final government approvals received for drilling at the high priority Cringle Gold-Silver Prospect.
  • Highly prospective targets highlighted by 800 metres of strike length of high-grade gold and silver in outcrop at up to 5.9 g/t gold and 107 g/t silver.
  • Cringle work to be followed by initial drilling at the Kia Ora West prospect, a copper porphyry target highlighted by strong coincident induced polarization and soil geochemical anomalies.
  • Program of up to 2,800 metres of reverse circulation and possible diamond drilling extensions to the planned holes.
  • First results from this program are expected in April-May 2019.
  • Initial reconnaissance drilling at Bara and Cupola now complete.
