Anglesey Mining PLC said it is starting a major drilling programme in July at the Labrador Iron Mines properties in Canada.
Initial drilling will be on deposits around Schefferville, Quebec with the aim of validating earlier drilling by the Iron Ore Company of Canada.
The drill will then move to the Astray deposit, 80 km south-east of Schefferville. The company wants to begin an extensive programme which it hopes will add significantly to the current level of resource at the location.
The project will run throughout July and is expected to total around 1,500 metres in 18 holes of core drilling at all locations.
The results will be tested for iron and other elements, and drill core will be used for metallurgical testing and process plant design.
Elsewhere at the company’s Parys Mountain project in Wales several mineralised intersections at Garth Daniel in the Carreg-y-doll and North Central zones have been made sent for testing, with results due in the next ten days.
Drilling at Garth Daniel, which recommenced in May, has reached 500 metres in the hole which is testing the project’s western expansion, with drilling to test the eastern expansion due to start once this is completed.
