  • Reconnaissance exploration of Mount Philp Breccia projects recommences following award of CEI grant.

Chairman of Hammer, Russell Davis said:

“For a first-pass program that tested 3 of the 30 targets identified at Perentie the drilling is considered encouraging and has confirmed the exploration concept. The greater Dronfield area is a regionally significant zone of alteration and widespread copper-gold anomalism and we look forward to advancing this project area further.”
