At present, the Farellon decline has advanced over 255m and underground diamond drilling is ongoing. The underground ventilation fan at Farellon has been installed and is currently being commissioned.
CEO John Williamson stated, ‘We are encouraged by the recent sampling results at Maria Luisa and both the results and progress at Farellon. We anticipate the pace at which we are progressing to continue and likely increase over the coming months”.
