Victory Mines Limited (ASX:VIC) had commenced an RC drilling programme at the recently acquired Coogee Gold Project near Kalgoorlie.
Being conducted by RC drilling contractor Strike Drilling, the programme is expected to be completed over a period of approximately four weeks.
The 4,000m RC drill programme will drill test the down plunge extensions of a number of the high-grade gold shoots within the overall 600m strike length Coogee pit trend and below the previously mined Coogee pit.
A total of 30 drill holes have been planned, with the majority of the holes ranging in depth from 50 to 150m, with selected deeper holes to a depth of 220m.
A Programme of Work Exploration (POW) has been approved by the Department of Mines Industry Regulation and Safety (DMIRS) and Heritage surveys have been completed.
Coogee is located approximately 55km southeast of Kalgoorlie on the north-eastern shore of Lake Lefroy and comprises four tenements (Mining Lease M26/477, Exploration Lease E26/177 and Miscellaneous Licences L26/264 and L26/265) that cover an area of approximately 17km2.
Executive Director, Matthew Blake, said the project’s location near the major mining centre of Kalgoorlie provides ready access to both significant exploration and mining support services and a skilled workforce.
