THE DRILL SERGEANT: Ardiden Limited (ASX: ADV) has completed permitting requirements to enable exploration activities to advance the 100 per cent-owned South Limb gold prospect, within the company’s Pickle Lake gold project in Canada.
South Limb is one of 19 gold deposits and prospects Ardiden has identified to date at Pickle Lake with historical drill results from South Limb highlighting a number of areas with high-grade mineralisation and sulphides.
Ardiden is currently drilling at its advanced Kasagiminnis gold deposit, situated 20km south west of South Limb.
The company is systematically lining-up its 18 other gold prospects and deposits to ensure a steady pipeline of gold targets across its 664 square kilometres Pickle Lake project.
Ardiden plans to undertake an initial exploratory drill program at South Limb before the end of the calendar year.
Ardiden gained access to South Limb via an arrangement with the Mishkeegogamang First Nation.
The South Limb MoU is the company’s second such agreement in the Pickle Lake project area.
“This is further progression of our relationship with the Mishkeegogamang First Nation group based at New Osnaburgh,” Ardiden managing director and CEO Rob Longley said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“I would like to thank the Mishkeegogamang leaders sincerely for placing further trust in our ability and desire to consider all stakeholder and traditional needs in this area.
“With drilling currently underway at Kasagiminnis, we hope to be drilling in a similarly responsible manner at the South Limb prospect in the very near future, and engaging Mishkeegogamang in employment and training opportunities.”
