Diversified explorer White Rock Minerals (ASX:WRM) and its joint venture partner Sandfire Resources (ASX:SFR) have commenced an airborne electromagnetic geophysical survey at the Red Mountain high-grade zinc and precious metals VMS project in Alaska.
White rock says this is an exciting application of the modern technology and the program is the next step in identifying key drill targets after a successful drilling campaign in 2018.
It's the first time this technology has been used at Red Mountain to explore sulphide mineralisation.
The previous survey was done by the Alaskan government in the mid 2000’s using shallow looking frequency domain technology to map the surface geology.
Shares in White Rock Minerals (ASX:WRM) opened flat at 0.7 cents.
