Emmerson Resources is set to begin drilling copper and gold targets at its Whatling Hill project in New South Wales.

The new drill campaign will start next month and includes 1000 metres of diamond drilling. Recently, the company completed 1000 metres of reverse circulation drilling at the project, results are expected in late November.

“The second phase of drilling at Whatling Hill has assisted in providing vectors to where the core of this copper-gold porphyry system likely resides,” Emmerson’s Managing Director Rob Bills said.

During the next phase of drilling likely deeper copper-gold targets will be hit.

“Our science-based, a systematic approach utilising cutting edge techniques coupled with traditional exploration methodology has further narrowed the search area,” Rob commented.

Previous results from Whatling Hill included copper grades of 0.4 per cent from 194 metres.

The company advised results from the upcoming drilling campaign will be made available in December.

Emmerson Resources’ share price is up 4.55 per cent at market close, currently trading for 12 cents apiece.
