“Our entry into the highly prolific Laverton greenstone belt in the Eastern Goldfields Province, in a known gold mineralised zone, which is still largely untested, caps a remarkable year for the business and our shareholders. The property contains some significant drilling intercepts which we look forward to using as a base to grow a resource.
The experience we bring to this project provides a huge amount of comfort as we start to implement our strategy and begin the required work to advance this into a commercially viable project. I look forward to updating the market on those plans in the near future.”
