St George Mining Announces Drilling at East Laverton is Underway

St George Mining (ASX: SGQ) (‘St George Mining’ or ‘the Company’) is pleased to announce that a major drill programme to test gold and nickel sulphide targets is well underway at its 100% owned East Laverton Project in Western Australia.

Reverse circulation (RC) drilling of a strong portfolio of gold targets has commenced. The multiple gold targets are present on all greenstone belts at the East Laverton Project and will be drilled as part of an expanded programme of 6,000m of planned drilling.

The RC drill rig was unable to complete a drill hole to test the highly conductive EM target at Windsor due to swelling clays in the first 48m from surface. A diamond drill rig, which will be able to better handle the ground conditions, is due at East Laverton next week to drill the 210,000 Seimens EM conductor.

St George Mining Executive Chairman, John Prineas said:

“The powerful EM conductor at Windsor remains untested by drilling. We have secured a diamond drill rig at short notice and expect to be drilling this exceptional nickel sulphide target next week. “The RC drilling of gold targets is progressing well and we are working with our laboratory to ensure a quick turnaround for assays. We are pleased to be able to expand the programme to test more of our high quality gold targets.“
