GEG Placer operations and projects remain relatively underexplored in the Central Otago and Southland regions of the South Island of New Zealand.
At Drybread, where mining operations are currently underway, exploratory mapping and drilling is recommended to target the zone between the current operations, and historical mining activity adjacent to the Dunstan Range.
At Matakanui and Vinegar Hill, further drilling, and bulk sampling are recommended to improve the confidence in existing resources outlined, and examining the gold potential of recent gravel horizons identified to the south of both resources.
At Waikaia, this larger gold resource in the Southland basin requires significantly more drilling, pitting and engineering data to provide confidence to proceed further on what is a deeper and potentially clayey deposit.
Pigburn, whilst relatively modest, has both resource consent and mining permit in place, and is being examined as a small mining operation under franchise arrangement.
A two stage programme of drilling, pitting and engineering studies is recommended, for an estimated cost of NZ$195,000 over all five properties.

About Glass Earth Gold
Glass Earth Gold is one of New Zealand's most active gold exploration companies with landholdings proximal to producing deposits and cash flow from its wholly owned placer projects. With an experienced geological team the Company is exploring promising gold prospects across both the North and South Islands.
In the North Island, exploration efforts are focused on large epithermal gold systems in the Hauraki Region, akin to the operating Martha Hill mine, (Newmont Mining).
In the Hauraki Region, Glass Earth Gold has identified and developed significant ground positions around the active Martha Hill gold mine operations at Waihi. The Newmont-Glass Earth Gold Waihi West JV (Newmont earning in) and Hauraki JV (65/35), including drilling at the WKP discovery, are being actively explored and managed by Newmont in collaboration with Glass Earth Gold.
The recent announcement that Glass Earth Gold has acquired option rights to the Neavesville gold/silver prospect (just north of WKP) will mean an increased exploration focus in the Hauraki region.
In the South Island, exploration efforts are focused on the Otago Region, home to OceanaGold's Macraes Goldfield, for identification of mesothermal "Macraes-style" gold targets and revenue generation through placer (alluvial) gold production.
