According to the company, two diamond drill rigs are now in operation at the asset as the 2019 drill program begins. The program will also entail surface electromagnetic (EM) and borehole electromagnetic geophysical surveys (BHEM), along with continued geological studies on a $5.4 million budget.

As stated in the press release:

The primary focus of the diamond drill program is to explore around the mineralization identified in drill hole DDH18-SD-421, which returned a 100.00 metre interval of 2.51 percent copper, 3.03 grams per tonne gold, and 52.5 grams per tonne silver for a 4.99 percent copper equivalent. Initial diamond drilling will test areas on section 2175 with DDH18-SD-42. Concurrently, the second diamond drill will test an EM conductor associated with this zone that was identified through a BHEM survey completed at the end of the 2018 program. Initial targeting of this EM conductor is approximately 50 metres south from DDH-18-SD-421 on section 2125.

Directional diamond drilling will be used in the 2019 drilling campaign at Stardust to increase the precision and accuracy of drilling step-outs. Oriented core will also be used to assist Sun Metals’ geologists gather information on the structural characteristics of the area.

In conjunction with the diamond drilling, large loop ground EM surveys will be conducted along strike of the phyllite/carbonate contact in the Canyon Creek skarn zone to determine if the EM response observed in the BHEM survey can be detected and if other conductors are present at this contact.
