A large number of samples were collected with over 1% TREO results and up to 12.45% TREO. Significant gold results were also present including 8.94 g/t and 4 g/t Au. The Aircore drilling will target areas both between Watts Rise and Killi Killi East and also to the north of Watts Rise.

Funds raised will also be used for capital items including exploration vehicles, portable XRFs, site transportable office and other general exploration equipment required.
