Two drilling rigs will be employed in the initial program and will cover a drilling area of approximately 5,000 m. Analysis of the Sunday Lake regional fault zone, discovery of mineralized zones and alteration models are the main aim of the drilling program. The presence of possible gold along the Sunday Lake fault over a strike, whose length is over 8 km, will be examined by drilling 20 diamond drill holes.
