The program, which will test east and west of this high value zone, consists of 9 planned HQ triple tube diamond holes for approximately 700 metres of core drilling.

In late 2014, Aeon drilled 19 holes (6,021m) on its Walford Creek licences, 17 infill and 2 extension holes, using a combination of RC percussion and core drilling.

Using the new drill hole data, H&S Consultants last year completed an updated Resource estimate, showing a 52% increase in the size of the indicated and Inferred Resources including a 13.5% increase in the Indicated Resources.

The current JORC Resource has been defined along this 5km strike length of the Fish River Fault Zone, which extends for 25km within the Walford Creek Project tenements.

According to the company, the mineralisation is largely structurally controlled thus there is substantial potential for Resource extensions along the strike-length of the fault.
