Resource Development continued to focus on the drilling of A-Pit, S-Pit and Q-Pit areas with the
main aim of increasing resources and to fully understand the open pit potential of the mine.
Additional drilling has commenced to target deeper high grade structures, particularly at A-Pit East
and S-Pit areas. This continues to advance the underground mining potential with good continuous
high-grade mineralization now intersected over considerable strike lengths.
Drilling in the A-Pit was designed to target potential structures between A-Pit Hill and A-Pit Central
and beneath the A-Pit Central zone. Alteration studies combining pit mapping, drill logging and
spectral data is underway for the A-Pit East and A-Pit Hill areas.
The S-Pit structure is one of the most consistent and significant high-grade structures in the Chatree
mining leases. Follow-up drillings during the reporting period were incurred and have confirmed and
extended previously reported high grade gold zones below the pit.
