Alien Metals Ltd, a minerals exploration and development company, has provided an update regarding the company's exploration progress and planning in the coming months.
Bill Brodie Good, CEO & Technical Director of Alien Metals, commented: "With the maiden drilling programme at our high-grade Hancock iron ore project just winding up, the upcoming report following the airborne magnetic survey over the Elizabeth Hill silver-PGE project, combined with some current on the ground reconnaissance work being done, we continue to advance our highly prospective portfolio of projects on a range of fronts. Drilling also continues at the Donavon 2 Copper and Gold project assay results will be announced as soon as they become available.
"On top of all this, we are excited by the prospects of the Elizabeth Hill tailings opportunity and have been fortunate to have the services of a highly experienced consultant for the review work.
"I look forward to being able to provide more detail on each project as it comes available in the coming weeks and months."
The planned work over the next few months includes field mapping and verification of new and historic targets on the Elizabeth Hill project which includes the Munni Munni North licence, pushing ahead with the planned trenching close to the mine to explore for repeat mineralised systems, finalising an initial drill plan to work up knowledge of the remaining ore as well as evaluating the options and costs for re-entering the historic underground mine. Some site work is current and follow up work is in the pipeline to start as soon as we are able. In conjunction follow up exploration will be planned based on the airborne magnetic survey interpretation results due any day.
Evaluation work for the silver tailings at the mine site have also begun and will be continued in the coming weeks.
As the company completes the maiden drilling programme on the Hancock Iron Ore project, it will report in more detail once all the data is compiled and once all the results are received be able to clearly plan the next phase of work, while pushing for the necessary authorisations to carry out a maiden drill programme on the Brockman Project while planning to do some further mapping and surface sampling to cover ground not completed yet. Alien Metals has scheduled to get back on the ground at Brockman in a couple of months' time to allow for permitting and preparation work.
The company is progressing with drill permits in Mexico to be able to commence the maiden drill programmes on both San Celso and Los Campos silver projects. These programmes are already funded and the company is ready to get them started and have projected to be able to start at least San Celso in the next few weeks.
In the meantime, results are due shortly for a recent small surface sampling programme on the Nueva Andromeda licence recently acquired by Alien and work is continuing to try and acquire further licences of strategic interest around San Celso and Los Campos.
In Mexico, at Alien's Donovan 2 Copper-Gold VMS project, Capstone Mining Corp. continue the maiden drilling programme. The joint venture and current drilling is fully funded and Capstone manages the project to a high standard. The current drilling programme is planned for 2500 m.
The company stresses that the outline of exploration presented is dependent on several factors which can be out of the company's hands to control but that this pipeline of work is what is being focussed on by Alien with the necessary funding available to achieve the majority of this work to advance all the projects up the value curve and add knowledge and value to them all.
