Brighton begins Cambodia exploration

THE BOURSE WHISPERER: Brighton Mining Group is about to kick off a program of intensive exploration work at the company’s Antrong project in Cambodia.

The work programs are starting later than the company had scheduled due to them having been delayed by a longer than usual wet season and unprecedented flooding in the regional parts of Cambodia that directly affected the company’s project areas.

“The exploration work will be part of the continual work programs of the company over the next seven months during the dry season and will include follow up drilling at the Antrong concession, preliminary drilling at Ropoah concession, infill soil sampling, auger sampling, trenching and stream sediments sampling on all concessions and geophysics which will include flying aeromagnetic surveys to cover all the concession areas,” Brighton Mining said in its ASX announcement.

“In addition ground geophysics using down hole EM (electromagnetic conductivity) at Antrong and IP (induced polarisation) will be done to test geological areas of interest.”

“The company is very excited about these next programs of work as they will focus on areas that have previously produced significant exploration results, as well as initiating work on other areas that have been identified through prior reconnaissance as hosting mineralisation.”

Brighton said it will also carry out stream and soil auger sampling out at Kang Roland North.

This area has been identified by the company to host another larger granodiorite similar to that located at Antrong, which hosts the Okvau project of ASX-listed Oz Minerals.
