“Aurelia is now undertaking an accelerated drilling program to upgrade Resource confidence from inferred to indicated status, with up to four diamond drill rigs operating at the site,” the company said.

“This program is expected to underpin the maiden ore reserve estimate for Federation to correspond with the completion of the feasibility study in mid-2022.”
