Auris Minerals (AUR) has announced that Westgold Resources (WGX) will begin reverse circulation (RC) drilling at the Forrest Deposit.

Forrest lies 130 kilometres north of Meekatharra in the Bryah Basin in Western Australia. Westgold holds 100 per cent of the gold rights and 20 per cent of all other minerals.

36 RC holes, for 2640 metres, will be drilled to infill previous RC and diamond drilling activities, with results to provide necessary drill coverage and data as well as increase the confidence in the resource estimation.

Work will also provide copper results in areas where drilling has previously been assayed for gold only.

Three additional RC holes, for 440 metres, have been planned to infill the copper mineralisation.

"Auris is working very close to Westgold as they work towards potential development of the gold cap overlying the Forrest copper deposit," Managing Director Mike Hendriks said.

"The extra drilling and copper assaying to be undertaken will enhance our knowledge and understanding of the nature of the shallow copper mineralisation in the near surface at Forrest," he added.

Further, an induced polarisation (IP) survey completed in late 2020 which was designed to evaluate roughly 4.5 kilometres of strike of an interpreted copper anomalous trend.

Targets identified via this survey will be drill tested throughout Q1 2021.

Auris is up 2.44 per cent on the market and shares are trading at 8.4 cents at 2:30 pm AEDT.
