A Sydney-based mining company has started exploration work at its $25 million exotic metal mine in regional New South Wales.
Thomson Resources has commenced drilling at its Bygoo Tin Project near Ardlethan, 450km west of Wollongong.
The program is designed to follow up, confirm and extend the outstanding results from previous Thomson drilling. Activities will mainly target extensions to the Bygoo North and South greisen discoveries.
“Two holes will be drilled to verify the thickness of the greisen at Bygoo North and a number of further holes will target potential new greisens in the general Bygoo area,” Thomson Resources chief executive officer Eoin Rothery says.
“About 1200m of drilling is planned in 10 to 12 holes and is scheduled to be completed prior to Christmas.”
Results are expected to be announced in early February 2017.
