The second drill will focus on new target areas while targets related to expansion of the current resource are being tested by the first rig.
Sun Metals (TSXV: SUNM) has announced that a second diamond drill has commenced drilling at its flagship Stardust project in north-central British Columbia.
According to the release, the second drill will focus on new target areas while targets related to expansion of the current resource are being tested by the first rig. The focus of 2018 drilling at Stardust is the high-grade copper-gold skarn portion of a carbonate replacement system that has been identified over a 2.2 kilometre long corridor of historic exploration dating back to 1944.
President and CEO of Sun Metals, Steve Robertson said:
“The addition of the second rig to our exploration program will greatly enhance our ability to thoroughly test the extensive carbonate replacement system. Our preparatory work has developed numerous prospective targets that have never been drill tested and we are excited to begin this next phase of work at Stardust.”
