A total of 37 resource evaluation holes and four geotechnical holes for 5,665 metres of diamond core drilling were completed.

Among the highlights were 13 metres at 1.42% copper from 12 metres, 90 metres at 1.08% copper from 43.5 metres, and 10.65 metres at 1.09% copper from 72.15 metres.

"The results of the resource evaluation drilling programme have upgraded our level of confidence in the BKM resource model and indicate that copper mineralisation remains open to the south and north-east area of the deposit,” said chief executive Peter Bird.

The aim is to deliver the bankable study for the BKM project by the end of May 2019.
