Empire Mining Corporation (TSXV:EPC) has started drilling at the Bulqiza Deposit which forms part of the Bulqiza-Batra Licence at its 100% owned Bulqiza chromite project in Albania.

As quoted in the press release:

Up to 12 diamond core holes totalling approximately 1,250 metres are planned at the 1440 adit and will target the fold structures identified by the geological reconstruction of historical state records and confirmed by a limited initial drilling program in 2010.

The 2010 drilling was carried-out from surface and intersected banded and massive chromite mineralization only some tens of metres above the 1440 adit. Work to rehabilitate the adit was therefore undertaken during the past year in order to provide access to drill sites in closer proximity to the fold structures where the highest chromite grades and thicknesses, and therefore tonnage potential, are interpreted to occur from the state data. The highest grades are to be expected close to the fold closures, while lower grade and banded ores generally occur on the fold flanges.
