Star Minerals (SMS) has completed its stage two resource definition drilling program at its Tumblegum South Gold Project in Western Australia.

Impact Drilling was engaged to undertake the drilling, following on from its successful stage one program.

Around 2669 metres of drilling was completed in 12 days with some holes extended as they remained in mineralisation.

“We are pleased to have successfully completed the recent phase of drilling at Tumblegum South and are eagerly awaiting assay results, with encouraging visibility in the drill samples obtained,” CEO Greg Almond commented.

“We expect that our shareholders are becoming closer aligned to our belief in Tumblegum South and appreciate the achievements of our team as this recent drill program builds on the incremental knowledge obtained from the Stage 1 drilling.”

Stage one work consisted of 1994 metres of drilling being undertaken with samples sent for analysis and awaiting assay.
