Diamond drill program commenced and progressing
This initial percussion drilling program has produced multiple high grade intersections which provide further support to our view that the RoD has the potential to generate sustainable economic production.
This initial program provides a number of areas that require follow-up drilling, which may result in additional high gold areas being available for extraction above the main adit level, between areas that have already been heavily stoped over the years.”
