The Vancouver-based company awarded a contract to Harris Exploration Drilling and expects drilling to begin as soon as April 15, the company said in a statement.

At the Philadelphia project in northwestern Arizona, the junior explorer plans to drill 6 holes in a bid to demonstrate the continuation of a high-grade vein that was historically mined in the early part of the 20th century.

Philadelphia’s past production ranged from 10 to 27 grams of gold per ton, according to Arizona Silver. The area is easily accessible, with initial drilling to take place less than 100 metres from paved roads.

The company also announced that its team staked additional claims to the north of the property.

In addition, Arizona’s management provided an update on its Sycamore Canyon permitting process, where the next step is to determine whether an environmental assessment is required.
