Drilling is set to start at a group of gold projects north of Bendigo in early October, after the exploration season kicked off yesterday.
Stawell-based gold exploration company, Navarre Minerals, began its season with a geophysics program at the Kingston Gold Project and will now look to further drill targets.
A 13,000 metre program of air-core and diamond drilling is planned at Tandarra, north of Bendigo with the aim of scoping the gold exploration potential within a four kilometre long corridor of near-surface mineralisation.
Navarre’s managing director, Geoff McDermott said he was looking forward to the explorations.
“We are excited to kick off the 2012-2013 exploration program and look forward to a steady flow of new results as we build on the success of our recent discoveries at Bendigo North and Kingston”.
It follows a diamond hole drilling program at its Tandarra project in July that recorded a “bonus” level of high-grade gold mineralisation.
