The company will be utilising both sonic core drilling and air core drilling techniques to drill 370 holes over a 7,000 metre drilling program.
Toro explained the intention behind the current campaign is to further advance the Wiluna project towards mine development decision beginning at the Centipede and Lake Way deposits.
The company has already received Western Australian and Federal Government environmental approvals for these deposits.
“With the recent completion of government environmental approvals for mining at Centipede and Lake Way, Toro is continuing to advance the project and position it a step closer to being Western Australia’s first uranium mine.” Toro Energy managing director Vanessa Guthrie said in the company’s announcement to the Australian Securities Exchange.
This is the largest single drilling program Toro Energy has undertaken on the Wiluna Uranium project.
