Aruma Resources (AAJ) is up more than 42 per cent today after identifying three priority targets at the Scotia South Gold Project in Western Australia.

The project is located at the southern end of the Norseman-Wiluna greenstone belt in the Eastern Goldfields and covers an area of 217 square kilometres.

It is situated 200 kilometres south of Kalgoorlie and 60 kilometres south of Norseman.

Scotia South has previously been drilled for nickel with previous explorers defining a strong arsenic anomaly, returning more than 100ppm (parts per million).

Despite lying 20 kilometres from Pantoro’s Panda gold discovery, Scotia South has been considerably underexplored for gold.

These priority targets will be the focus of Aruma’s first exploration phase at Scotia South.

Aruma is planning to undertake rotary air blast (RAB) drilling at the project and then follow it up with reverse circulation (RC) drilling.

The company will also use this program to identify similarly hosted gold mineralisation to that seen at Panda.

Aruma is still up a strong 42.9 per cent and shares are trading for 0.5 cents each at 1:01 pm AEST.
