Frontier Resources (FNT) has completed a geotechnical site investigation of the proposed drilling pads at Saki Gold Prospect.

The field investigation was conducted by Frontier's consultant geologist and field technical engineer to assess the surface conditions and slop stability of the proposed drill pads to ensure the safety against potential landslides.

The investigation found potential geohazards that required immediate corrective safety measures.

Four drill pads were identified to be in the high-risk zones and were relocated to safer areas. Two drill pads that were medium risk have a nearby landslip of 35 metres down the hill and will need to be monitored during pad clearance.

During this inspection of drill pad sites, a number of proposed trench sites were also inspected to ensure their location is suitable to sample and define mineralisation Saki vein extensions.

Due to a landslide in December 2020, geologists are currently revising the location and drill pad sites at the Saki V vein to a safe location away from the landslide area.

Additionally, five water sampling sites were sampled and analysed at the SGS Environmental Laboratory in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea, for
general water quality testing.

The majority of samples were taken in a pool area where the water is deeper, so any fine solid particles have settled to the bottom.

Results showed that the water is safe for drinking by the local villages and for use at the Saki exploration camp along Degom Creek.

On market close for the day, Frontier is up 8.82 per cent and is trading at 1.9 cents per share.
