THE DRILL SERGEANT: Galileo Mining (ASX: GAL) has drilling underway at the company’s Empire Rose and Yardilla South prospects in Western Australia’s highly prospective Fraser Range Belt.
Galileo Mining indicated the drilling program will consist of approximately 600 metres of RC pre-collars and 600m of diamond core tails.
The company has three initial holes planned with more work to be undertaken as results dictate.
Both the Empire Rose and Yardilla South prospects are well developed targets where initial shallow drilling, geophysical surveying, and geochemistry suggests potential for economic mineralisation at depths between 150m and 250m below surface.
“We are excited to begin our first diamond drilling campaign in the Fraser Range,” Galileo Mining managing director Brad Underwood said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
“The Fraser Range is a fast-developing mineralised province and we hope to make a discovery with the drilling we have planned.”
