Beacon said the drill programme, which has 80 planned holes totalling about 2,500 metres, will use the Schramm reverse circulation drill rig which successfully completed the Stage 1 drilling programme.

According to the company, the Stage 2 programme will test two areas, the first of which is located west from the most western Stage 1 holes and the second located further to the east from the most eastern Stage 1 holes.

“At the conclusion of Stage 2 drilling programme, and when all information is available and reviewed, the Company will release a JORC resource statement,” Beacon told the ASX.
