Tempus Resources Ltd (“Tempus” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce commencement of diamond drilling at the Blackdome-Elizabeth Gold Project, located in British Columbia, Canada.
Managing Director, Brendan Borg commented, “We aim to drill approximately 8,500 metres in this program to verify and extend the existing high-grade gold mineralisation at Blackdome and Elizabeth. We will also test the significant gold in soil anomalies identified in the geochemical sampling program that have outstanding potential to expand the scale of the known mineralisation.”
The drilling program consists of approximately 8,500 metres of diamond drilling. The program has commenced at Blackdome where its planned to drill approximately 2,500 of the total metres focussed on verifying and expanding upon the existing high-grade historical NI43-101 Mineral Resource. The program at Blackdome will also include drilling over significant gold in soil anomalies to the northeast of the current mineralised envelope. Following Blackdome, approximately 6,000 metres will be drilled at Elizabeth, again focussed on verifying and expanding upon the existing high-grade historical NI43-101 Mineral Resource but also targeting extensions to mineralisation along strike, supported by gold in soil anomalies, as well as at depth.
The Company looks forward to providing further updates as this exciting drilling program progresses over the coming months.
