Robin Young, chief executive of Amur Minerals Corporation (LON:AMC), says completion of 20 metallurgical drill holes three months ahead of schedule is good news for the definitive feasibility study (DFS) at the Kun-Manie nickel project in far east Russia.
That study is earmarked to be completed at the end of December 2017, he told Proactive's Sarah Lowther.
It comes as the firm is ahead at its drill programme at the Maly Kurumkon/Flangovy (MKF) part of the large property there. 2,100 metres of the current MKF 2,500 metre length is now considered to be completely drilled for resource and reserve determination.
Young graphically says that's the equivalent of the distance between Buckingham Palace and the Royal Courts of Justice in the Strand, London.
