The holes were drilled as part of a comprehensive column leach sampling program to support the Definitive Feasibility Study ("DFS") currently in progress on the Karma Project, and were designed to capture oxide, transition and sulphide material on representative cross sections throughout the Karma Project deposits.
The HQ-sized core drilling campaign totaled 822 metres in 14 holes at the Kao deposit and 314 metres in four holes at the Nami deposit, with all holes drilled within the planned pit shells. The holes were drilled at 270 and 360 degree azimuths within the central portion of each deposit, with dips ranging from -55 to -75 degrees, and a maximum depth of 99.50 metres.
