Reuters Africa reported that Empire Mining (TSXV:EPC) started drilling at its Bulqiza chrome mine to verify the presence of a cusp of high grade and thick ore.

As quoted in the market news:

Lirim Hoxha said the drilling at Bulqiza followed confirmation of a “very big” structure at its Thekna deposit east of Bulqiza, part of their Bulqiza-Bater-Thekna license.

“We have today started drilling at gallery 1440 to prove the presence of a cusp of high grade and thick ore, based on what has been drilled and mined before,” Hoxha told Reuters. Hoxha said Empire drilled last year on the surface at Thekna to prove extensions in the east and west of the exploited chromite mineralization. Bulqiza is the richest chrome area in Albania. “We confirmed a very big structure ready for commencing access development. It means we can develop an important mine with 36 to 40 percent chromite oxide,” Hoxha said.
