EV Resources (EVR) will commence drilling during the coming week with the drill rig expecting to arrive at the Khartoum tin-tungsten project in Queensland on June 6.

An initial 3000-metre RC drilling campaign had been planned for the Boulder Prospect area for some time but was repeatedly delayed due to unseasonal wet weather.

The company’s drilling will follow up five greisen pipes targeted with drilling in 2007 and test several new areas based on elevated surface geochemistry sampling that have not been previously drill tested.

Whilst waiting for the late wet season rain to conclude, the exploration team was assessing new areas through mapping and rock chip sampling with approximately 200
samples collected from over 20 prospects.

Executive Director Adrian Paul commented his excitement to finally commence drill testing as this will be the first drill test for many of the targets.

“Historic drilling returned broad zones of low to moderate-grade tin with the current drilling designed to determine the extent of this mineralisation,” he said.

“Meanwhile, the exploration team has been busy assessing numerous tin and tungsten prospects for further drill programs that we plan to undertake prior to the end of the year.”

Samples have been submitted to the laboratory with results for initial samples expected to arrive soon.

EV is also assessing historical data for the Stannary Hills and Brownville Mining areas for drilling.

EVR shares were down 6.82 per cent, trading at 4.1 cents as of 3:25 pm AEST.
