Since the discovery of VC-07 East just over 12 months ago, a total of 102 diamond holes have been drilled for 43,995m on the deposit. An additional 37 diamond holes have been drilled at other prospects on the greater Andover project area.

Analytical results have now been received for 92 holes at VC-07 East, up to and including hole ANDD0111, with assays for the remaining 10 holes scheduled to be delivered within the next month.

The maiden Mineral Resource Estimate for the VC-07 East deposit is expected to be delivered late in the first quarter of 2022.
